Lot 508: Porsche 911SC Carrera 2,7 litres coup�
The legendary Porsche RS resulted from the factory's realisation that the weight of its top-of-the-range 2.4-litre 911S production model restricted its development potential for racing. Therefor, it was decided to produced and homologate a special lightweight variant for competition purposes. The result was the Carrera RS (RennSport), which featured thinner-gauge metal in its doors, roof, boot lid, floors and even in the gearchange platform. When the homologation targets had been met, the lightweight RS was discontinued but the Carrera name continued on Porsche's top-of-the-range model, which in its new, series-production 911SC form mounted the 2.7-litre, 210bhp engine in a full-weight, fully trimmed bodyshell. The tail spoiler was an option and its absence from this car only serves to emphasise the understated elegance of the 911 Carrera in unadorned form.According to its accompanying Porsche Zertifikat, this car was originally sold in Italy with the following extras: Grand Prix White paintwork; black 'Carrera' side lettering; and a sliding steel sunroof. Recent works, carried out in the autumn of 2012, included overhauling the brakes and fitting a new alternator, wheel bearings and tyres (invoices available). Said to be rust-free and undamaged, the car at some time has been repainted in its original colour. The black leather interior in described as in very good condition and both the gearbox and electrics are said to function normally. This highly desirable and increasingly collectible early 911 Carrera is offered with Austrian Einzelgenehmigung and the aforementioned Porsche Zertifikat.
