Founded in 1962, the Rijkspolitie (SAS) was an elite Dutch police force, where officers had to go through a very tough selection process. The aim of the Rijkspolitie and the use of their elite high speed Porsches was to patrol the new Dutch highways; that for a long time had no speed restrictions at all. The use of Porsches in the Rijkspolitie was eventually discontinued in 1994.
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. It featured a 3.0-liter engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. Originally power output was 180 bhp, later 188 bhp and then in 1981 it was increased to 204 bhp.
Finished in the identifiable red and white colours over black interior, this wonderfully restored 1978 Rijkspolitie Porsche 3.0 SC is provided today with period correct police equipment including the sirens, speakers and the light-up stop warning on the rear end of the car.
This really is a very rare opportunity to own an original Dutch Police High Speed Pursuit vehicle with period correct police accessories and equipment, in police colours.
