The Porsche 911 is perhaps one of the most iconic Porsche cars to grace both the American and European classic car market. Part of the second-generation of Porsche 911 models, the 1978 Porsche 911 kept its rear-engine, air-cooled roots, yet brought with it a number of improvements. Offering a revised body and a larger flat-six engine, the new 1978 911 was often considered a radical departure from the original Porsche 911. From 1974 to 1989, more than 170,000 Porsche 911 models would be produced – a testament to the brand’s perseverance, ability to stay relevant, unmatched performance, and classic design. Throughout its production, 911’s were offered as Coupes, Targas, Cabriolets and Turbos; there were also several limited-edition runs. In fact, 1978 was the first year that Porsche offered the 911SC, which had a 3.0L engine. Today’s buyers – whether searching for an everyday driver or a pristine example for their collection – will find a car to match and exceed their expectations.
