These require careful assessment by somebody who has experience with the
911. The same applies to blisters anywhere on the exterior. It is also easy for the
unscrupulous to conceal such corrosion with filler and a quick repaint. The
911SC and Carrera 3.2 represent the best options in the late-classic era 911s.
From the start of the 1978 model year, the 911SC has the more reliable Turbo-
based 930 engine. Being air-cooled, the engine oil plays a part in cooling as well

There was that awful feeling of déjà vu,just like in the early 1970s when a
glorious era came to an abrupt end, and few could envisage what the future held.
The Group C cars had provided the same sort of excitement as the classic sports-
racers of the 1960s for a new generation of race fans, but there was nothing in
the pipeline that could even remotely be promoted as a suitable alternative.
Having announced it was doomed, some last-minute negotiations saw to it that

Porsche's sporting life can be divided roughly into four periods. There were the

era. The first recorded win by a Porsche was on 1 1 July 1948, when Herbert
