The debut of a new model for any manufacturer is a big deal, but for Porsche this was a big game changer for the company and for the sports car industry. The Porsche 911 has been the longest production vehicle in existence that has retained the name and the authentic body style from the first generation. With the all new 911SC coming to market, it was a significant improvement over it processor. With an upgraded 3.0L that proved to be very dependable and stronger for the additional weight that was added to add some extra creature comforts for the driver and passengers. With a more powerful engine and more torque available to the driver, this car was not only an everyday driver option, but one that begged to be brought out to the track and prove to the driver or anyone chasing it that it was still a 911 and still a Porsche that must be respected!
