1980 Porsche 911 SC
Used 1980 Porsche 911 SC, 90,124 miles
Starting in MY 1978, the new 3.0 L 911 SC 2,994 cc was now the basic 911 model. It was in effect a Carrera 3 known as a 911S in the United States detuned to provide 180 PS 130 k W 180 hp. The SC designation was reintroduced by Porsche for the first time since the 356 SC as distinguished from the race engined 356 Carrera. No Carrera versions were produced and the 930 Turbo remaining at the top of the range. Porsche s engineers felt that the weight of the extra luxury, safety and emissions equipment on these cars was blunting performance compared to the earlier, lighter cars with the same power output, so in non US cars, power was increased to 188 PS 138 k W 185 hp for 1980, then finally to 204 PS 150 k W 201 hp. However, cars sold in the US market retained their lower compression 180 PS 130 k W; 180 hp engines throughout. This enabled them to be run on lower octane fuel.
