Chassis no. WP0ZZZ917DS150419. Arctic White over black leather. 2994-cc, 180hp, 5-speed manual, MSD ignition, Carrera wheels, snorkel brake light, Turbo wide body kit, Momo steering wheel, white face gauges, aftermarket stereo.

Evaluation: Altered to look like a Turbo model in 2007 with body kit and even Turbo sill plates. Curiously, though, the 911 SC badge that betrays the car’s humble origins is still there. Repainted at some point, and some of the hardware was painted over. Taillights show age. Wiper scratches on the windshield. Excellent convertible top. Faded dash pad. Clean carpets. RM’s inspection report notes that the steering column is “loose” and “needs adjustment.” Engine bay could stand a detailing but is mostly tidy. Same with the underbody. A driver-condition 911 with light but tasteful mods (albeit also purely cosmetic). 35,315 miles on the odometer. Located in Indiana.

Bottom Line: This car was a no-sale at a $37,500 high bid in Auburn Fall, and for a driver-quality 911 SC cabriolet (which is worth less than a coupe) that high bid was generous. The offer here after just eight total bids is realistic, but still the consignor holds out. The number isn’t likely to get much higher on the next go-round.
