The car has it's original spare wheel located in it's rightful storage compartment under the hood and the car boasts it's original Black 'Fuchs' light forged alloy highly striking wheels with 4 brand new 'Bridgestone Potenza' tires.

For those of you who are not familiar, the 1980 911SC 'Weissach Edition' was a limited run of some 400 cars built to honor the freshly minted Porsche Research and Development complex located near Stuttgart in Weissach, Germany with many cars going straight from new into private collections. This car was only sold in the US and they came in just 2 exclusive exterior colors, either 'Platinum Metallic' or 'Black Metallic'. They both featured indentical interiors and Porsche's fuel injected 3.0L flat 6 engine matched to a 5 speed manual transaxle. On the exterior it offered the choice of two special paint colors and came standard with the 930 style rear spoiler rather than the standard 911SC whale tail, a front chin spoiler, 156 and 157 wider rear Fuchs forged alloy color-keyed wheels and tires, sealed beam Halogen headlamps, factory fog lights and a standard power sunroof. It was just a gorgeous and unique car which cost over $32K in 1980 (over $100K today according the the CPi index) and which today, as when new, is obviously highly sought after as a very rare and desirable 3.0 SC for any Porsche enthusiast or collector!
This particular car obviously drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced 911 SC should and must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated! This renown matching #'s 3.0L Porsche rebuilt engine is extremely strong and powerful with only very nominal miles since having being rebullt at one of the foremost independent Porsche mechanics in Los Angeles and the 5 speed manual transmission has a very smooth transmission shift with a virtually new clutch and no synchro problems as is typical for these year models and the temperature always remains cool.
You will surely look long and hard to find a finer well maintained example of this exceptionally clean and increasingly collectible 911 SC 'Weissach Coupe', 1 of only 200 in 'Black Metallic', in this sporty rigid coupe frame bodystyle with a factory sunroof for the ultimate exhilarating driving experience in this most striking of color combination's available anywhere else!
