West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this original California (with only two documented California owners since new) 1983 Porsche 911SC 3.0L 6 cylinder Cabriolet in the most desirable 'Guards Red' color with a black leather interior and with only 18K original miles!
Originally delivered and sold by the renown 'Bob Smith Porsche/Audi' dealership of Hollywood California on 8/18/1983 to a well known former fashion model and garaged in her Malibu, California home. She serviced the car at the same 'Bob Smith' dealership until the car was traded into 'Carlsen Motors Cars', the Porsche-Audi dealership of Palo Alto, California where it was then sold to only its second southern California owner on 5/4/1991 with only 11,947 original miles. The car's second California owner also always garaged and covered the car and reportedly it has never seen rain under his ownership since 1991 (25 years)!
The first 911 Cabriolet ever debuted in late 1982, as a 1983 model. This was Porsche's first cabriolet since the 356 model of the mid-1960s. A total of 4,214 were sold in its introductory year, despite its premium price relative to the open-top targa. Cabriolet versions of the 911 have been offered ever since.
