The 911 presented at the end of the ’70s precisely in 1978 with the name “SC”, Super Carrera, aesthetically is little different from the previous 911 2.7 series except for the enlarged rear fenders. But the real novelty of the 911 SC is the bigger engine: a three-liter engine generating 180 hp. The 911 Turbo 3.3 is produced in parallel, the second version of the supercharged 911. In 1980 the 911 SC gained a further 16 hp compared to the 1979 model, reaching 204 hp of maximum power, the engine adopted the G catalyst, Lambda probe and a larger cooling fan, like that of the Turbo, the compression ratio increased from 8.6 to 9.8:1 making it necessary to use“super” gasoline and to renew the engine’s ignition and injection systems.
Aesthetically, the SC, in addition to the black and no longer chrome frames introduced in 1979, stands out for the new shape of the indicators mounted on the mudguards and for the body colors. The interior features the central console under the dashboard and a new three-spoke leather steering wheel; a key-operated anti-theft device is installed on the driver’s door, while electric windows are introduced to increase passenger comfort. Over the years, the SC series has not undergone significant changes and was developed in parallel with the Turbo 3.3. The cabriolet version derived from the Targa with fabric top and steel structure is presented at the 1982 Geneva Motor Show. In 1984 the entire 911 SC range will be replaced by the Carrera 3.2, with a 3164 cc Bosch Motronic injection engine with 231hp. A limited series of the 911 SC is produced: the so-called Jubilee, created to celebrate 50 years of the factory, produced in only 200 specimens, all in Meteor gray color with red leather / cloth interior.
