Description

Outwardly very similar to the final Porsche 356Bs, the ultimate 356C model arrived in 1963 sporting four-wheel disc brakes – first seen on the 2.0-litre Carrera 2 – among numerous detail improvements. Engines available – both of 1.6 litres – were the 75bhp ‘C’ and 95bhp ‘SC’, the latter replacing the Super 90. Testing a 356C in 1964, Road & Track enthused over its comfort, quality and excellent performance, concluding, ‘one would look a long time before finding a sports or GT car that offers more pure driving enjoyment.’

Dating from the penultimate year of production, this 356SC has the more desirable 95 horsepower  engine. The car was sold new in Europe and has four german owners, Last owner had the car restored at 51000 km in 2006. Current milage is 65000 km. The restoration was carried out by Rupp,  a renowned and respected Porsche specialist located in France.

It is finished in Aura blue with a black leather interior, its matching numbers engine has been reguarly serviced by Porsche Lapierre.

With its disc brakes and 95 horsepower engine, the 1600SC is one of the most desirable of 356 variants, driving like a modern car yet retaining all the charm of the original. This example is running well and the new owner will no doubt be delight to have secured an example in such condition.
