Lot # 201 (Sale Order: 1 of 58)
In September of 1959, Porsche revealed their fully updated 356 known as the 356B using the revised T5 bodyshell. This differed from its predecessor with the front and rear bumpers being raised by nearly four inches and the headlights repositioned higher, these changes being necessary to meet the stringent vehicle safety regulations in the growing American market. Inside, Porsche fitted a new deep dish steering wheel and deeper front seats.New to the model was the Type 616/7 Super 90 engine which was an indirect replacement for the Carrera de Luxe models. The engine was fully revised with a new intake manifold, a larger Solex 40 PII-4 carburetor and the Carrera air filters. Other detail changes included 9.0:1 pistons, stronger valve springs and a different crankshaft with 55mm main bearings.This Porsche 356 T5 B Super 90 Coupé was first delivered on 17th January 1961 by AFN Chiswick and we believe the original colour scheme was Slate Grey with a Blue Vinyl and Pearl Grey cord interior. Factory options included the more powerful Super 90 engine and Dunlop tyres. The vendor has stated that the car is thought to have been an AFN demonstrator, but at this time there is no evidence to substantiate this claim. The original registration number was 2748ML and a letter from Porsche confirms these details.Little is known about the early history of this example, but prior to the vendor acquiring it we know it was stored for many years. Requiring a complete restoration, this 356 would make an ideal Winter project. The bodyshell requires some repairs, but the vendor is confident that there is no evidence of accident damage. The floors look to be sound and the engine lid, bonnet, and left-hand door are all stamped with the last three digits of the chassis number. No number can be found on the right-hand door, however.The car is described by the vendor as containing 99% of the parts required to finish the restoration. The Cardex states the original engine was a Super 90, number 801713, however the current engine is stamped 800671 but is believed to be the correct engine type. Sold, strictly as seen, with an old-style V5C, this 356 deserves to be brought back to its former glory and would look superb in its original colour of Slate Grey, or could even be the basis for an historic racing car project.

The 993 was the final generation of air-cooled 911s, and as such will always have a special place in the affections of Porsche enthusiasts. It is also widely said to be the last of the 911s that were built whilst engineering integrity overruled accounting pressures at Porsche. Twenty years on, it still looks modern - a truly timeless design.The 993 was launched in the autumn of 1994 and was claimed to be 80% new. The bodywork was altogether more curvaceous, with a number of new panels and the overall look was much smoother and more integrated. Importantly, this new style was still every inch a 911 in the traditional manner, with the profiles of the doors and rear quarter windows remaining unchanged from earlier models.The biggest change under the skin was the new multi-link rear suspension, giving greater driver confidence, less road noise and excellent ride quality. Designed to give a level of passive rear-wheel steering (the ‘Weissach effect'), thus controlling the way the suspension behaved under cornering, braking and acceleration, it transformed the 911. It was also the first 911 to be equipped with power steering and an advanced ABS system.The 993 uses essentially the same 3.6-litre engine as the 964, mated to a development of the worthy G50 gearbox, but now with six forward gears. August 1995 heralded the introduction of the Varioram induction system helping to boost power to 285bhp, and enabling a top speed close to 170mph and acceleration to match.The car seen here is a RHD, 1997 993 Targa with a manual gearbox. This all-original Varioram car has covered just 45,000 miles and has always been thoroughly maintained. It comes with a fully comprehensive servicing record (Porsche Centres and marque specialists Paragon), a complete book-pack and many invoices. It was a highly specified car when new and has had five fastidious keepers since. In striking Zenith Blue Metallic paint, contrasting favourably with the Cashmere Beige leather, this car is surely one of the finest 993s available today. The Targa roof creates a light and airy feel in what is already a very attractive cabin. The Targa model also offers a flavour of open-top motoring whilst retaining structural rigidity for a more driver focused car.The 993-series 911 is regarded by many as a true modern classic, offering genuine usability but still with a real and important place in the history of Porsche's most famous model. This example is very worthy of the expression ‘best-of-breed' and is ready to be enjoyed and appreciated.(Please note, the registration M49 NUS will not come with the car)

When the Porsche 964 was first introduced in 1989, Porsche made a point of the fact that it was 85% different from the outgoing 911. The design featured more integrated bumpers and a host of mechanical changes, most significant of which was the introduction of four-wheel drive. The displacement was now up to 3600cc, producing 250bhp, power steering and ABS brakes were now fitted as standard, and the torsion bar rear suspension was replaced with coil springs and shock absorbers. Such was its success, that in the five years of production over 62,000 left the factory.This Porsche 964 C4 is a left-hand drive manual car delivered new in Europe and optioned with air-conditioning. The vehicle has, in the last six months, been enhanced by a £6,500 window-out repaint in Pacific Ocean Blue to a very high standard. It also benefits from a recent £700 service by Heritage AutoWerks of Berkshire, the company behind Singer Porsche.Whilst being a European specification C4, this car has spent time in the USA and was repatriated to the UK in 1998 and has all the tax discs since this time. Regrettably, very little of the service history accompanies this Lot, however, a recent inspection by a specialist service centre in Sittingbourne concluded that given the light wear on the engine, the indicated 55,000kms appears to be correct, but unfortunately we cannot warrant this.This is a fine driving car sold with a private registration, red calipers, valid MOT, UK V5C and an outdoor car cover.
Lot # 207 (Sale Order: 7 of 58)
The 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963, before being replaced by the more complicated 964. These final cars were the most flexible and usable of Butzi Porsche's original design. The all-alloy flat-6 engine, which had been fuel injected since 1971, received a final stretch to 3,164 cc, giving a torquey 231 hp ~ enough to propel the lithe and slippery coupe to over 150 mph, with 0-60 mph coming up in 5.6 seconds.Cars built from September 1986 onward received the more user-friendly G50 gearbox, but all 3.2 Carreras feature galvanized bodies, which together with Porsche's legendary build quality, ensure that these classics are long lasting.Supplied by Lancaster Garages in Norwich on the 17th of March 1986, the car was highly optioned with the ‘M491' option code Super Sport package, which includes the wide body styling of the 930 Turbo, and the stiffer suspension and larger 917-derived brakes also from the Turbo.Showing 97,370 miles, this car has been fastidiously maintained, which is evident in the extensive service history, boasting 13 main dealer and specialist stamps in the service book.Having only covered 200 miles since 2012, the car has also had a recent major service and refresh at a cost of over £2,500. This included new oil pipes and oil cooler, new tyres and a brake refurbishment.Prior to this work, the car had previously benefited from a professional respray in its factory colour of Meteor Grey and additionally underwent an overhaul of the gearbox. Presented with the car are invoices detailing this work along with the service history, instruction booklets, past and current MoTs and previous service invoices.Only a reported 75 right-hand drive 3.2 Carrera SuperSports were built by the factory and, as the last "proper" 911, the car gathers new found appreciation, representing an opportunity to acquire one of the rarest variants of all, the wide-bodied convertibles. This example is presented in excellent all round condition and is ready for its new owner.

Described by the majority of respected performance motoring magazines as "The best driver's 911 yet", the outstanding GT3 RS Generation 2 was introduced by Porsche in May of 2010 to great critical acclaim. A lot of this journalistic enthusiasm was generated by its wholesome 444bhp output delivered in an almost linear form which, in the right conditions, whistled this Gen II car up to 60mph in 3.9 secs, 100mph 4.5 secs later and on to a top speed of 195mph with the horizon approaching rapidly. Effectively a 'Carrera Cup' car for the road, the mind blowing straight line performance was matched by its competent and predictable handling owing much to the underpinnings and suspension settings being derived from several years of competition experience with GT3s. The ride/handling balance is exceptional and the cabin is civilised, resulting in a very quick car that can comfortably be used daily. There are 911s and then there's the 911 GT3 RS.We at Silverstone Auctions are big fans of these special cars and this one owner, immaculate, left-hand drive, GT3 RS Gen II is certainly no exception. This car was supplied new in 2010 to a customer in Bahrain with Royal family connections, where it has completed a mere 1,500kms in five years.This car has obviously received meticulous attention and care during its short life, none more so than since its arrival in the UK and recently received a "One hundred and eleven point" check at the Porsche Centre in Portsmouth (with any relevant advisories dealt with and all the filters and fluids replaced). The car has a full years MoT until August 2016.Beautifully finished in Carrera White with a Black interior, this example is supplied with all bills and receipts for the servicing recently carried out, including brand new tyres; this thoroughbred ‘road racer' is on the button and ready to go.All the UK registration processes and VAT liabilities will be taken care of pre-auction, resulting in a competitively priced, high-performance road car designed for everyday use. Only Porsche can blend these two characteristics together so effectively.
Lot # 210 (Sale Order: 10 of 58)
When Porsche unveiled the Boxster as a concept car in 1993, the mid-engine roadster rekindled fond memories of the Porsche 550 Spyder. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of its famous lightweight sports car, Porsche launched a special edition of the Porsche Boxster S in 2003. Wearing dedicated "50 Years of the 550 Spyder" badging, only 1,953 of these commemorative vehicles were produced. The 550 Spyder was the first sports car specifically designed by Porsche with motor racing in mind, and its successes through the years provided a foundation on which the fame of the Porsche marque spread around the world. The Porsche Boxster S shares many of its features with the 550 Spyder, including body lines that are timeless in their elegance and athletic appeal. To enhance the already outstanding dynamic characteristics of the Boxster S, Porsche included sought-after equipment and technical features not previously available in the Boxster model line up. Porsche engineers boosted the 3.2-litre flat-six engine's output to 264 horsepower, up from 258, and reduced the travel of the six-speed manual transmission's gear change by 15%, further enhancing the driving experience. A sonically tuned exhaust system with a stainless steel tailpipe delivers the sort of sound that stimulates those inside the car as well as those who hear it growling past.The car's, already well set-up, suspension is lowered by almost four-tenths of an inch and wheel spacers that are nearly two-tenths of an inch wide move the wheels slightly outboard, improving the handling and endowing this very special Boxter S with a wider and lower stance. Most of the original 550 Spyders were painted silver, and the special edition Boxster S models reflected their heritage with the same Silver Metallic paint as the Porsche Carrera GT. The majority of these special cars had Cocoa hood and matching leather interior but the owner of this car (number 1511), its only owner from new, chose the Slate Grey leather and Black hood option. According to Porsche World magazine only some 150 examples were made in right-hand drive out of the 1,953 models produced, so this car, in this colour scheme, is therefore very rare. This Boxter presents today in amazing condition and the owner, a discerning collector of older classics, has regularly started the car and run it up to temperature, rarely venturing out of the garage, besides the annual trips for MoT and servicing. As you would expect with a low mileage of only 2,800 and just one owner, all of the handbooks are in place with the service book showing Porsche main dealer stamps. This Boxster S 550 Anniversary model would be a wonderful addition to any serious Porsche collection and such a low mileage, UK specified example may never appear on the market again.
Lot # 211 (Sale Order: 11 of 58)
The question of how to tempt new customers into Porsche ownership has always been problematic. On the one hand, you're trying to uphold the reputation of the company as a purveyor of high-quality, high-performance sports cars while on the other, you're anxious not to alienate those potential customers whose budget won't stretch to a new 911.In 1964, Porsche had just such a problem with the sales of their new 911 proving a touch disappointing and continuing demand for the 356, which was scheduled to be phased out, necessitating that the production lines kept rolling. The solution seemed to be financial, and the decision was made to replace the 356 with a four-cylinder, more appropriately priced 911 and, as a result, the 912 (initially 902) was conceived.First available to European customers by June 1965 (initially with 1582 cc and 90bhp), the 912 soon became a market leader, particularly in the USA. In the UK, the 912 was some 30% cheaper at £2,466 compared to the £3,488 price tag of the 911 and went on to outsell its six-cylinder sibling by no less than 188% in 1966.Constructed in late 1966, the 100,000th Porsche built was a 912 Targa police car. The 912 won Car and Driver's 1967 "Readers Choice" Poll for its class. With its nimble handling combined with high reliability, a racing 912 won the European Rally Championship for its class in 1967. Production of the 912 ceased in 1969 when over 30,000 had found homes.This particular 912 was first registered in 1967 as an original UK, right-hand drive short wheelbase car, and remained in daily use up until 15 years ago when it was transformed by James Booth, a VW engineer at VW Hereford. The car was completely refurbished and rebuilt effectively as a 912T with all the interior trim and external badging from an original 911T. The engine was reputed to have been supplied directly from Porsche and has just had new piston rings and all fluids changed after coming out of a nine year hibernation and is coupled to a dog-leg, five speed gearbox. The recommissioning works were carried out by another highly skilled technician, Brian Woodward who is known for the quality of his work on classic vehicles. Being an early engine, it runs on Solex Zenith carburettors as opposed to the later Webers. The car now rides on Koni Adjustables and the original Fuchs alloys, that were an option when new.All the work was completed to a very high standard and makes this Porsche stand out amongst its peers. The car is also featured on the front cover of Laurence Merediths book, " Porsche 911. Model by Model". Within this publication, is a complete road test on MJR 155E and a number of pictures of this car, some as an original 912.This is the first time this particular Porsche has been on the open market in the last 15 years, and whilst not an original 912T it is really lovely and represents the essence of a late sixties sporting Porsche.
Lot # 212 (Sale Order: 12 of 58)
The prospect of combining the most powerful turbo engine in their range at the time, with a manual gearbox and mounting them in a 2-wheel drive lightweight 911 was the inspiration for the, rather special, Porsche 911 GT2. At the same time, Porsche upgrade and modify the suspension, brakes and engine output whilst lightening and removing interior components to create the ultimate driver's version of the car at that time. This recipe has been used with the 993, 996 and 997 versions of their iconic 911 model.This car is the 997 GT2 version of the Porsche 911, introduced in 2008 and produced until 2012. The engine uses twin variable geometry water cooled turbochargers producing a serious 523bhp and 500 lbs foot of torque, which leads to a maximum speed in excess of 210mph and a 0-60mph time of just 3.6 seconds!This left-hand drive 997 911 GT2 was purchased new by a collector in Dubai on 8th October 2009. It remained there with one owner until earlier this year, when it was imported into the UK. All duties and taxes have been paid but the car will require registration in the UK following the sale. Silverstone Auctions are happy to help with this process if unfamiliar to the purchaser.Finished in White with a black interior, this GT2 has covered only 22,000 miles from new and the bodywork is presented in superb condition. The black leather interior is unmarked and the car is supplied with all books, manuals and will be serviced prior to the auction. We welcome all inspections of this vehicle and the vendor reports that the car drives very well and was specified new with the all-important manual gearbox.GT2 models have traditionally held their value exceptionally well and are regarded as seriously collectable amongst Porsche fans worldwide. Silverstone Auctions sold a 997 GT2 RS in September 2015 for £315,000 and in comparison, this GT2, with very similar performance, looks superb value for money.
Lot # 213 (Sale Order: 13 of 58)
As Auctioneers, our Legal Department are fearful of the terms "as new, like new or better than new" but this situation makes it difficult to describe our 930 Turbo featured here, which would certainly qualify for "Better than new" if only we were allowed to say it...This true 1980's icon is offered in fabulous condition from the best in the business. Offered in the very best colour combination of Guards Red with Black leather interior, this is a true Supercar of the period and rivalled the Ferrari Testarossa and Lamborghini Countach for wall space on bedroom walls up and down the country!JCT 600, Porsche Centre Leeds painstakingly restored this 930 Turbo for the 2014 national "50 Years of the 911" restoration competition. This ambitious restoration was completed in just six months by the team at the now recognised ‘Porsche Classic Restoration Centre' to an exceptional standard deserving of two major accolades at the awards ceremony. The first was the Winner of "Porsche Cars GB Employee's Choice" and the second win was for "Best Mechanical Restoration". A thorough account of the full restoration is chronicled in a dedicated seven page feature in the April 2015 issue of Classic Cars magazine.The basis for this restoration was an original UK right-hand drive 1981 930 Turbo, which had been discovered laid-up for more than 15 years in a garage north of Leeds. Complete, but down on its luck in terms of condition, it was home to a family of mice. With just six months to go before the car was to be judged (by 1970 Le Mans 24 Hour winner Richard Attwood), against the efforts of every Porsche Centre in the land, that mid-October deadline at Brands Hatch seemed ambitious.To beat the competition it was clear that attention to detail and a sympathetic nod to originality would be necessary to make this truly best of breed. Andrew Harrison who was responsible for the bodywork and paint recalls ‘I didn't realise how bad the car was until (the car) was chemically stripped and bead blasted with tiny plastic balls'. ‘The inner wings, door panels, doors and spring hangers were the worst areas'. With originality being key, a flat paint finish would have been out of character on some areas of the car so an orange-peel effect needed to be fabricated on the insides of wings and sill bottoms. This was achieved by using a 68-line paint thickener in Guards red - normal paint being 23-line.Jack Clarke was responsible for the running gear and brakes. He remembers the moment he saw the project and realised he was in for some late nights to get it all done. ‘The calipers were seized, the pistons jammed, the handbrake cable stuck and the wheels were scraping on the inside of the wheel arches'. These observations weren't too daunting until the brief arrived suggesting that as many parts as possible were required to be retained by sandblasting and zinc plating rather than replacing, and have it all finished in just a few months...Just removing and stripping the brakes took an entire day due to corrosion, split calipers, locked handbrake and perished seals, however, shot blasting, zinc-coating and, no doubt a lot of swearing got it to tip-top standard. Finally, refinished wheels and fresh tyres completed this section.On to mechanicals, the section for which their major accolade was received. Despite starting and running upon delivery to the JCT 600 workshops, it was feared that any extensive engine tests may cause unnecessary harm and since a full mechanical strip, repair and rebuild were scheduled anyway, this started in earnest. Andrew Wrexham, the Porsche Centre Leeds engine shop manager, identified rusty tinware, inhibited fins and baffle plates, corroded aluminium parts, nut fittings and pipework as well as more oil on the outside than the inside.As with the bodywork, attention to originality was key so it was imperative that despite being a 33-year-old engine, as many original parts as possible were to be retained. As such, the engine retains its original aluminium crankcases and rocker covers which were vapour blasted which is the only technique that won't pockmark delicate surfaces. Despite all their heroic efforts, a new wastegate and new turbocharger were ordered and fitted. The gearbox, though thoroughly inspected required little work. It didn't need new synchromesh so was cleaned, reassembled and performs well. The end result is a real credit to the restorers.Finally, the interior and electrics. The domain of Andrew Smith who was hampered by inaccessible fuse boxes and 80's wiring with no block connectors meaning a very involved process with connections that required being individually screwed in. Despite once being home to mice, the seats responded well to re-stuffing and reconditioning, and notwithstanding some difficulty finding a replacement carpet set or period correct headlining, as was the demands of this restoration they were of course correctly sourced and expertly fitted.I
Lot # 214 (Sale Order: 14 of 58)
This amazing Porsche represents one of the greatest air-cooled 911 driving experiences Silverstone Auctions have ever enjoyed. Starting life in 1977 as a UK-delivered 911 Lux, it has been transformed into one of the finest examples of a retro-modified car imaginable. Very few cars could come close in terms of specification, performance and build-quality. Designed and built by Porsche Central Operations in 2014, the car was completed as a one-off project to compete amongst all other Porsche centres as part of their ’50 years of the 911’ restoration competition.The brief from Porsche Central Operations in Reading was to create a no expense spared car, that not only utilised all of their resources but demonstrated their restoration ability to a global audience. “As part of the project the workshop doors will be left open to enable staff and customers to engage with the Project.”Chassis number 9117301478 was built on 5th January 1977 and first registered on 7th February that year. It was fitted with a 2.7 litre engine developing 167hp and was enjoyed by 5 previous owners. In 2006, the car was taken off the road and stored in largely original condition by the Porsche Centre Guildford. In 2014, the somewhat tired 911 made its way to Porsche HQ in Reading to be “restored/transformed into a 1970's RS replica with some special modifications.”The project began in earnest under the leadership of John Manning, Andy Keywood, Andy Orr and 5 other Porsche employees. The car was stripped to a bare shell and prepared for a complete nut and bolt rebuild. At this point, the decision was taken that all components on the completed car should reflect the very best of 50 years of 911 development and evolution.Whilst the shell was being stripped, sandblasted, repaired and readied for paint, some key project decisions took place. The completed car would be painted in Viper Green, a colour that epitomised the seventies era. The wiring would be replaced with modern electronic systems and the suspension would be to a full RS specification all round. The front brakes would come from a 930 3.3 Turbo, the rears from a 3.2 Carrera and the cockpit would boast a brake balance control switch. The gearbox was to be rebuilt with strengthened main bearings. The exhaust system would ideally be loud but not insufferable on the road, and on a standard set up should retain a purposeful but not excessive growl, however, the system should also be adjustable to a full straight through race mode, whenever appropriate.The engine decision was to remove the original 2.7 unit and replace with a development 993 powerplant from the Porsche Technical Department. This was stripped, and nut and bolt rebuilt with ‘Cup’ cams and a Wolf engine management system. In fact, the engine was tuned live over the internet late one evening with Wolf technicians in Australia, helping ensure the best was extracted from the motor. It was then put through its paces at Porsche Silverstone by some of the in-house racing drivers, and their reports can be best described as… “Phenomenal.”Having spoken with Porsche, Silverstone Auctions can confirm that the engine has been dyno tested at just over 300hp, and the power-to-weight ratio is equivalent to a race specification 1974 Porsche RSR. The results are simply incredible, and we feel this bespoke 911 represents the ultimate reincarnation of the 911 RS concept. It has been built by some of the finest Porsche technicians in the business and the number of hours spent on this vehicle can not even be calculated. The driving experience is simply out of this world and for that reason, Porsche Reading themselves have a significant emotional attachment to this vehicle and consequently, they would like the new owner to contact them to ensure that "their baby" can return to HQ for routine maintenance. An unrepeatable opportunity to acquire a 911 that is 1 of 1, and would have cost well over double the guide price to achieve by a private individual. Inspections are more than welcome, and a full breakdown of this extensive project is available to prospective bidders via email.

In February 2006, Porsche revealed their first generation 997 GT3, and in common with all GT2 and GT3 iterations, most of the developments and upgrades were directly related to performance improvements on their competition cars, and the associated homologation requirements for FIA approval. In addition to the new 415bhp, 3.6 litre flat 6 with its 6-speed box, the vehicle pioneered "zero lift" aerodynamics, meaning, at speed the body shape created only aerodynamic "downforce" with no grip-diminishing "lift" and made extensive use of a racing related version of Porsche's active PASM suspension system. This made it the first of the quick RS or GT3 versions to feature an electronically adjustable suspension set up. An RS version of the GT3 became available in October of that year weighing some 20 kilos less, and this saving was achieved by the use of a carbon fibre rear wing, a plastic engine cover and a lightweight rear window made from the same material.A slightly wider track was concealed in the muscular rear end provided by the Carrera 4 shell, aiding grip and stability at the expense of a little bit more drag, however the reduction in weight to 1375Kg resulted in an improved power to weight ratio of 300bhp /ton.The body panels are unique to the 997 GT3 RS, and a small number of cars were painted in a limited edition Orange colour (8C6) mixed specially for this model.The 997 GT3 RS offered here today is definitely, non-negotiably Orange, and is complemented by black wheels, spoilers, decals and details. It's an original UK right-hand drive car, first registered on 16/03/07 and was purchased by its current owner on the 8th.of April 2008 at which point it immediately became part of a large collection. It was given a major service on the 31/08/10 with 4,994 miles indicated and was briefly used for a short period before being returned to the collection in October 2010. The car has been serviced again recently and an MoT certificate issued at which point the odometer was showing only 5,527 miles.Looking fabulous in gleaming Orange and Black, this two owner RS Porsche must be one of the lowest mileage GT3s in existence and we feel represents an excellent opportunity.

Rewind to 2003 and Ferrari launched the track-focused Challenge Stradale version of their 360, having reduced the base car's weight and refined its performance and, naturally, Porsche responded by releasing its challenger, the equally focused 996 GT3 RS. The first water-cooled 911 to wear the RS badge, the 996 GT3RS was similarly lightened, in the Porsche's case by the adoption of a polycarbonate rear window and carbon fibre wing and bonnet. Other tweaks included an altered engine specification with work focused on the cylinder head, uprated springs & dampers and the option of ceramic composite brakes.Offered here from a stable of other fine Porsches by a long-term Porsche Club GB member is this right-hand drive 2003, 996 GT3 RS which was originally delivered new to Hong Kong to the garage of wealthy businessman and car collector Philip Ma. It was under his ownership that the original service book was misplaced, however, a replacement was sourced and re-stamped by Porsche Hong Kong.Finished in Carrera White with red ‘RS Script' & decals the specification of this car includes; Nomex bucket seats, a full body coloured roll cage, air conditioning, top tinted windscreen and electrically adjustable door mirrors. Although originally delivered with Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake discs (PCCB), this car is now running brand new steel discs, for more road-friendly stopping power.This car has been imported with all taxes paid, and, as a result is now wearing a UK registration plate and is supplied with a UK V5c and an MoT until October '16. Included in the history file are servicing invoices, the service manual and the original bill of sale in Hong Kong. At the time of cataloguing, this car had covered a mere 3,277 miles from new!

In 1978 Porsche introduced their new version of the 911, called the '911SC'. It featured a 3.0-litre, six cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. Originally, power output was 180bhp, later 188bhp and then in 1981 finally 204bhp.This single mirror, left-hand drive early 911 SC Coupe was delivered new in 1978 and was owned by the first owner until 1999 when it was passed to a family friend. He owned the car until 2014 when it was imported to the UK. With 2 previous owners, this stunning 911 SC has covered just over 29,500 miles from new. Whilst not completely substantiated by service history, the condition of the car is commensurate with a very low mileage car.Benefitting from many years in the dry climate of California, the Guards Red paintwork is in superb condition and shows very minimal paint thickness on the main panels. The floors are in superb order and the interior needs to be seen to be believed. We have never seen a better interior that has survived the test of time quite so amazingly. The carpets, headlining, switchgear and seats are totally original and in beautiful condition. The inner wings are factory correct and the wheels are in lovely condition.Supplied with the original wallet, books, jack, tools and benefitting from a technical inspection at Porsche expert Charles Ivey in London, who recently carried out a full service and fitted a new clutch and starter motor. Consequently, the car is in superb order both aesthetically and mechanically.Offered without reserve, this 911 SC is not to be missed.
