Not only the color combination and the delivery from the first year of construction make this vehicle interesting, but also because of its history and originality, this example stands out from the crowd: The historical documents such as the original vehicle registration document all three changes of ownership with date and mileage. The original log book with operating instructions and integrated checkbook document the service history. On May 16, 1978 the vehicle was registered at the Ludwig Honrath car dealership. A short time later and only 750 km later, it was delivered to the first owner, a mechanical engineer from Bingen am Rhein, who will have the car in his possession for 10 years. On March 29, 1988 at 44,000 km, the vehicle was re-registered to the second owner, born in 1933, and was then owned by the family for almost 30 years until 2016. Due to the death of the long-time owner, the car last changed hands on June 16, 2017 and at approx. 59,900 km and has been in the third hand of a knowledgeable Porsche enthusiast from Munich ever since.
The kilometer reading is currently 62,870 km. Technically, the vehicle, including the engine and transmission, was professionally maintained on an ongoing basis and was last serviced in a specialist workshop in October 2020. Various ClassicData reports attest this copy consistently very good grades between 1 and 2+.
This vehicle offers the opportunity to purchase a rare classic: the exterior color of brown copper metallic combined with the interior in brown beige is contemporary and at the same time timeless. The optional equipment includes the power windows, a second exterior mirror, tinted glazing and an electric antenna. The combination of the optics and the state of preservation results in a fascinating overall picture.
The condition deserves top marks: except for the bonnet and the rear bumper, the vehicle is in the original paintwork according to the paint report. Neither welding nor body work nor accidental damage can be seen. The underbody, like the glazing, many seals and rubbers, as well as the lights and other attachments, is still largely in the original original delivery condition. The original production stickers and the original underbody protection are still present. These irretrievable factors spread the very original, authentic flair and make this specimen a very rare "survivor", as the body was only fully galvanized from model year 1981 onwards. The underbody shows no unusual oil deposits, but is very dry, clean and without any deformations.
Especially for collectors who appreciate the rarity of such a well-preserved original, these are the highlights: three previous owners (also briefly the delivering car dealership), the low total mileage of almost 63,000 km and the complete history of the previous owners and the logbook with checkbook, tools and original key. In addition, the paint thickness of this vehicle is in the original paint, except for the bonnet and rear bumper. I myself have seen very few vehicles from this period that, in addition to a German first delivery, still have the original paintwork almost everywhere. Since the car was technically regularly maintained in specialist workshops, this vehicle can therefore be described as a special feature and a rare opportunity.
The way it looks is how it drives. Flawless. No re-ignition, no rattling of the valves disturbs the impression under full load. Just like an original 911 should be. Powerful and powerful in the spirit of Ferry Porsche, who once put it: "If you step on it, he has to shoot."
The vehicle has already received an H license plate and a current TÜV. In addition, the vehicle was last serviced on October 7th, 2020. The car is registered and has been moved regularly and stored in a dry and dark place. The vehicle can therefore be used immediately. The original on-board folder with operating instructions as well as the tool set, which appears untouched, are also part of this collector's package.
Conclusion: This 911 3.0 SC Coupe is already a rarity due to the combination of original preservation and maintenance condition in almost the first paint. In addition, the complete third-hand history and the low mileage is an absolute rarity with this model.
With all the justified arguments that make up the hype about the later 3.2, I am particularly impressed by the 3.0 SC's authentic character with its unadulterated sound and the ideal level of technology, which still embodies a lot of originality.
Conclusion: With this copy, the emotion, but also the reason comes into play. Because a 3.0 SC Coupe with a complete history from 3rd hand and the low mileage in almost the first paint is extremely rare in this state of preservation and therefore particularly stable in value. Although this specimen is in collectable condition, it is simply fun to drive. With its 180 hp and a curb weight of just 1160 kilos, the new owner will be envied for every trip. Simply great!
On May 16, 1978, the car was registered for the Ludwig Honrath car dealership in Bingen am Rhein, and a short time later it was first delivered to the first owner.
On March 29, 1988, the vehicle was re-registered to the second owner and was owned by him until 2016.
The vehicle has been owned by the third owner since June 16, 2017.
A copy of the original letter is available.
A documented service history is available through checkbook entries and maintenance invoices.
Vehicle maintenance and brake fluid change took place on October 7th, 2020 at km 62,148 (Brüning Sport + Touren Wagen, Eresing)
Vehicle condition and assessment (based on the knowledge and statements of the vehicle owner and an apparent assessment):
The vehicle is generally in a very good state of maintenance and care. The outer body structure shows flatness and gap size accuracy.
In addition to the visual findings, the vehicle was checked using measurements. When comparing the measured values with average standard paint film thicknesses, it was found that partial parts were repainted. Increased readings can be seen on the bonnet and on the rear bumper and indicate a repainting.
Any abnormalities or filler application, which would give an indication of accident repairs carried out, were not determined.
The interior is clean and has no wear and tear.
The technology was maintained in a type-competent specialist workshop.
The underbody is dry, all chassis parts and the exhaust system are optically intact. There are no visible defects in the engine compartment either.
Unrestricted suitability for everyday use and full operational readiness can be assumed on the basis of the consistently positive inspection results.
Existing ClassicData reports certify that the vehicle has a condition grade between 1 and 2+.
