Porsche Of The Day: 1978 Porsche 911 SC Backdate

This 1978 Porsche 911 SC coupe was transformed into the style of a 1973 Carrera RS lightweight model during a two-year build completed in 2018.

The car’s body was stripped down and updated  to capture the essence of the ’73 Carrera RS. Key modifications include the addition of a longnose hood, a distinctive ducktail spoiler, and replacement bumpers, fenders, and flares. These updates were followed by a stunning repaint in sleek black, accented with striking yellow graphics.

The car is powered by a 3.0-liter flat-six engine, enhanced with an advanced-curve distributor, 964-style camshaft, 46mm PMO carburetors, MSD ignition module and coil, new pistons and cylinders, a Patrick Motorsports RSR muffler, and SSI heat exchangers. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Type 915 five-speed manual transaxle.
