The Porsche SC was the company's highest evolution of their 356 series, prior to the next major accomplishment, the 911. The Porsche SC models were well balanced, proportioned and well powered.
This SC Cabriolet has remained in California its entire life. It is a very late example built in 1965, the final year for 356 production. It is an engine and transmission numbers matching example and fitted with factory options including the high-horsepower 'SC' engine, a special order black leather interior and chrome wheels. The 1600cc four-cylinder engine delivers nearly 100 horsepower and there is a four-speed manual gearbox.
The car has a recent nut-and-bolt restoration and is finished in champagne yellow paintwork. No expense was spared and all parts were either OEM or NOS.
In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the RM Auction in Amelia Island, Florida. The car was estimated to sell for $150,000 - $190,000. Bidding reached $140,000 but was not enough to satisfy the vehicle's reserve. It would leave the auction unsold.
