Random Car Wednesday: Porsche 911SC
I have recently developed a habit of getting caught in the rain. Usually I bolt for the nearest dry place, but today's RCW, a lovely red Porsche, made me take a slight detour. The 911 is a thoroughbred sports car and an automotive icon. Since its debut in the early 1960's, there have been countless upgrades, redesigns, and evolutions, but the lineage is still apparent. This classic example is a 911SC. Produced from 1978 to 1983, the SC had an 180-horse 3-liter powerplant hung out back, operated via a 5-speed transmission. That horsepower figure eventually rose to 204 horses by the end of the SC's lifespan. This particular car sports original Fuchs wheels and, apart from some minimal weathering, is in very good condition. It is a German car, after all. Kudos to the owner for driving it in the rain.
