Following incredible routes through breathtaking scenery all over the globe, these competitions allow you and your navigator to experience the halcyon days of rallying’s golden era. We’re delighted to offer a passport to this exciting sport - a fully prepared and highly competitive 1978 Porsche 911 SC.
Equipped with all the necessary safety and performance gear required to take part in such events, we’re informed that this Porsche holds all the correct current documentation to take part in historic rallies.

- Current FFSA Passeport Technique

As a fully prepared competition car, the interior is fully kitted out for rallying.
While it retains its original 911 SC dashboard and instrumentation, there’s plenty of additional equipment including timing and navigational apparatus, extra switchgear and an emergency electrical cut-off. For safety, we also find a full roll cage, fire extinguishers, and a hammer for breaking windows.
The driver and navigator sit in competition bucket seats. In operation, the flocked sports wheel, gear lever and switches all feel very natural and the 911s original column stalks and heater controls are retained. There are headsets for communication and of course, full harnesses for both occupants.
All looks to be in really good condition, especially considering the way this car is driven. We understand that everything is correctly certified, within date and ready to be used.
- Black paintwork with various sponsors
- Two-tone Fuchs alloy wheels with black centres
- External electrical cut-off switches
- Uprated towing eyes
- Quad spot lamps with unitary cover
- ‘Duck tail’ spoiler
- In very good condition, with few scars from its rallying exploits
With a purposeful stance, numerous sponsors and a prominent array of spot lamps, there’s no mistaking this Porsche as an historic rally car. Considering that it has been driven in a spirited fashion at several events, the paint and bodywork remain in really nice condition. The car looks really straight and the vendor informs us that, besides the odd small blemish, there’s no notable damage topside or underneath.
The Fuchs alloys are in great shape and really suit 911s of this era. The ‘duck tail’ spoiler lends a sporting theme that complements the numerous additional lights and various sponsors. We’re informed that it is always stored carefully when not participating in events and so has no corrosion issues at all.
- 3.0-litre air-cooled flat-six prepared by MCG Propulsion in 2015 (pictures of the engine out in gallery)
- Five-speed manual gearbox sending power to the rear wheels
- Limited-slip differential
- Prepared in accordance with FIA regulations
Porsche 911s are well suited to rallying, with rear-ward weight distribution adding much-needed traction to the rear wheels. The vendor reports that this example performs beautifully on tarmac and loose surfaces and is very rewarding to drive quickly.
The engine was apparently prepared by MCG Propulsion and always starts promptly, runs well and provides ample power. We understand that the mechanicals have been serviced quite recently and the vendor assures us that the car is ready to use. All the suspension components look in fine order and we’re informed that everything works exactly as it should. The gearbox selects gears smoothly and the brakes allow you to stop in a timely manner.
To have an historic rally car in the garage is surely every petrolhead’s dream and what better car to take racing than a classic 911?
This is well sorted, very presentable and ready to use. We can’t wait to see it taking part in events this year.
