In 1980, a true limited edition model 911SC was produced for the American market. The ‘Weissach’ edition was a standard SC with special paint. It was built in 1980 to honor the Porsche Motorsport team working in Weissach Germany. 468 units were made and half were painted Metallic Black, the other half in Platinum Metallic.
The interiors were wrapped in Doric Grey leather with burgundy piping. Additional body and mechanical specs included a flexible lip on the front air dam, whale tail rear spoiler, Bilstein dampers and Fuchs wheels. ‘The Weissach Edition 911’ also included other features that were comparable with the Sport Group package. The Special 15 Fuch wheels were painted ‘platinum’ metallic on all ‘weissach’ models. They were fitted with Pirelli CN30 Tires and had Platinum Metallic painted centers. The Weissach coupes also came standard with a flexible chin on the front air dam and whale tail rear spoiler.
The Porsche Weissach Special edition (option M439) was an immediate collector’s car when released. All of the 911 SC Weissach’s were coupes, had a curb weight of 2,756 pounds, had normally aspirated engines, the same as the regular SC models. They were sold at a price of $32,000, a high price at the time. Today, Weissach Edition 911s continue to be highly sought after classics.
