Porsche 911 (1978 - 1983)
From 1978, the new 3.0L 911SC (2994 cc) was the base-911 model. The "SC" designation was reintroduced by Porsche for the first time since the 356SC. No Carrera versions were produced and the 930 Turbo remained the top of the range model. Porsche engineers found that the weight of the extra luxury, safety and emissions equipment on these cars hampered performance, compared to the earlier, lighter cars of the same power. In non-American cars, the power was increased to 188 hp, and later even to 204 hp. However, cars sold on the US market kept their (lower-compression) 180hp engines.
In 1980 Porsche came up with a special edition Weissach version of the 911SC, named after the city in Germany where Porsche's research center is located. Designated the M439, it was offered in two colours, with the turbo whale tail and front chin spoiler, matching body color Fuchs alloy wheels and other user-friendly features as standard. In 1982 a Ferry Porsche Edition was made.
In 1981 a Cabriolet concept car was shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The first 911 Cabriolet debuted in late 1982, as a 1983 model. This was the first Porsche convertible since the 356 in the mid-1960s. With 4,214 units sold in its first year, it was considered a very successful car, despite its premium price compared to the open-top targa. Since then, Cabriolet versions of the 911 have been offered. In 1979 Porsche had plans to replace the 911 with their new 928. However, sales of the 911 remained so strong that Porsche decided to revive the 911 editions. The Porsche 911SC was sold a total of 58,914 times.
