The first 911SC built to celebrate race victories for Porsche in several championships
1978 Porsche 911 SC Martini Edition – Ultimate Guide
There were basically 3 special editions of the model 911SC. The first one, the ‘Martini’ edition of 1978, was identifiable by a set of side stripes similar to those that appeared on the 1976 British Motor Show 911 Turbo which was clad with the stripes to celebrate victories in the World Manufacturers Championship and the World Sports Car Championship, as well as the fourth consecutive racing season with sponsors Martini & Rossi. The stripes were so popular that Porsche quickly made them an option available to any owner as a factory or retro fit. They were usually purchased to adorn the sides of Porsche 911SC’s in Grand Prix White. So, technically, the ‘Martini’ edition was not a mainstream variant of the SC, it was a graphics option but still considered collectible by today’s classic car enthusiasts.
