Two years later, in 1980, the 911 SC went into it’s third year of production and was by now well established within the Porsche scene. In order to publicize the still quite unknown ,,Sonderwunschabteilung’’ Porsche decided to let the department create a limited special run 911 exclusively for the very important american market, the so-called 911 Weissach Edition.
The 911 Weissach Edition was produced in 400 units in total, 200 in black metallic and 200 painted in platinum metallic. The black paint called ,,Sonderfarbe Schwarz Metallic’’ was exclusively created for this limited edition and found its way into the regular Porsche color board not until the late eighties. Many years before Porsche regularly offered the ,,aero-kit’’, as an extra for the 3.2 Carrera, this special run 911 was equipped with a front and a rear spoiler. The rear wing (,,whale tail’’) was taken from the 1977 Turbo Carrera / 1976 Carrera 3.0 and modified in order to fit the non-turbo car. It is a full fiberglass lightweight spoiler with a metal framing which can, in this exact shape, only be found on the weissach edition. The wide 15 inch fuchs alloy wheels with a centre in platinum metallic are another special feature, which can usually just be found on Carrera 3.0s or early 930s.
