Browse the internet or the results of the latest auctions, and you’ll come to the dreadful realization that instead of buying up Apple and Google stock, you should have invested in the market for the classic Porsche 911’s.Values for pre-1974 911s have risen as much as 600 percent over the last four years, as indicated by the Hagerty Insurance vehicle-valuation tool.
In 1978, Porsche introduced the new version of the 911, called the '911SC'. Porsche reintroduced the SC designation for the first time since the 356SC (as distinguished from the race engine 356 Carrera). There was no Carrera version of the 911SC. The "SC" stands for "Super Carrera" , “Sports Carrera” or “Special Carrera “ Porsche had now finally mated a body that was capable of lasting indefinitely with an engine that was capable of lasting nearly as long. Well maintained 911SCs are capable of 300,000 km’s between rebuilds. Leather covered front seats, air conditioning, electric mirrors, head light washers, and forged alloy wheels became all but standard.
Unfortunately there are no 911air cooled bargains remaining. But there is one desirable and affordable air-cooled 911 model left, though it’s been long overlooked. Of course we’re talking about the 911SC.
In fact, it was almost the last-ever 911 built.
“As the now-legendary story goes, it was soon after the arrival of Peter W. Schutz at Porsche in 1981 as CEO that he found himself in the office of engineering chairman Helmuth Bott. On the wall, Bott had a chart depicting the future timeline for the automaker’s products. The plan for the front-engine 928 and 924/944 coupes extended to the end of the chart, but the timeline for the 911 ended abruptly in 1981 because there were concerns about declining sales and ever-stricter regulation of air and noise emissions. As Schutz tells it, he walked over to the chart with a black marker and extended the 911’s timeline to the edge of the board. And then he further extended the timeline onto the wall and finally drew it all the way out of the doorway. When he put the marker back down on Bott’s desk, the two of them were grinning.”

We’ve seen Porsche prices rocket recently- SC’s are one of the biggest movers since the June 2015 update of the Hagerty Price Guide- but it still offers great value for money compared with other air-cooled 911 models..
