1982 porsche 911sc targa for sale 1
Fast Facts:

  • The 911 SC (Super Carrera) featured wider fenders over the standard 911s of the previous generation. Weighing in @ only 2550 lbs, the SC featured an aluminum block and heads, forged steel crankshaft and a dry sump oil system
  • The rare automatic shifting Sportomatic transmission was only available on the SC in 1978 and 1979 (’79 it was a special order). The Sportomatic was essentially a modified 4spd manual gearbox with a vacuum-operated single-disc dry clutch and no flywheel. A torque converter was used to smooth the transmission’s electro-mechanical shifts and to keep the car stationary while the clutch was engaged
  • To change gears, all the driver had to do was move the lever to the desired gear (D, D3, or D4) and let go. Moving the lever automatically disengages the clutch, which would automatically re-engage once the next gear was selected
  • This transmission was axed in 1980, and no automatic transmission would be offered in a 911 again until the 964 generation (1990’s Tiptronic)
  • Porsche put their cars though a very thorough rust prevention process allowing for a 7 year guarantee against rust. Porsche tested the steel body panels, which were galvanized on both sides, by blasting a salt solution at the body shell for 240 hrs @ 95 F ambient temp. The zinc coated metal appeared immaculate after the test. In addition, the entire paint process was comprised of 27 stages
  • The fuel filler compartment includes a plastic bib that folds out to protect the paintwork from spills during fueling
Key Model Year Changes:

  • Featured a higher output alternator with built in regulator
  • New improved oil breather system was installed
  • The previous year (1981) saw the fuel lines upgraded from plastic to steel, as well as the introduction of the 17 digit VIN #. 1981 and newer SC’s are identifiable by the side turning indicators behind the front wings
  • 1980 and newer SC’s feature the newer style idler arms, which have a wider base and two-bushing mount. The new design prevents binding of the idler arm, which was known to cause premature chain tensioner failure on previous years
  • 1983 was final year of SC and the only year of the SC Cabriolet (the first fully open-top 911)
