Many people believe that the air-cooled Porsche 911 market is inflated to the point that they have become unaffordable.
I beg to differ. In the past 9 months, the prices on those sports cars have fallen quite a bit, and if you spend time shopping, you can find a nice 911 for less than $30,000.
The 911SC Cabrio is a very interesting car. This was Porsche’s first true convertible 911, rather than a Targa, and when new, it was hailed as a landmark design.
Over the years, some 911 purists have written off the ’83 Cabrio as not a pure 911. That is nonsense. The 911SC Cabrio was not a cut-roof car but was re-engineered to be a convertible with considerable added chassis stiffening, something we did not see in the 911 Targa until 1984.
These are stunning cars that offer all the great points of a 911 in a convertible package.
This 911SC is finished in Grand Prix White with a Can-Can Red leather interior, and it runs great, according to the seller. The engine had a compression test 2,000 miles ago that showed all cylinders in line with factory specs, the seller adds, and during the past 5,000 miles, the car has received a new clutch, alternator, flywheel, oil lines, seals and other service items.
The car has a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and all books and tools, as well as a strong service history, the seller notes.
The 911SC Cabrio is a true one-year-only model – the 911SC changed in 1984 to the 911 Carrera – which adds to its collectability.
Luckily, it is not yet thought of that way, and this nice car can be bought for only $29,900, which is an excellent deal.
