The 911 SC/RS is considered the holy grail of the Porsche RS lineage with only 20 cars produced.

Built as a Homologation “special” at the request of sponsor Rothmans as an FIA Gruppe “B” Rally Porsche, the SC/RS borrowed freely from the 911 RS/RSR construction concepts of a decade earlier, according to Road Scholars website.

“As a two wheel drive evolution of the discontinued 911 SC model, only twenty cars had to be built in order to satisfy the rules. 

These were numbered 001 to 0020, with most being pressed into immediate FIA Rally service by factory teams such as Rothmans (six cars) as well as for privateer use. These models carried a price tag of $72,000 US in 1984.

The substitution of factory lightweight items produced a curb weight of just 2160 lbs, 1,000 pounds lighter than a street SC model. 

It did so with a lightweight body shell, aluminum hood, fenders, rear deck, and door panels. Additional weight savings were achieved with thin glass, 935 racing seats, and Kevlar bumpers.”

The website notes that the SC/RS utilized performance parts from other models. 

For instance, the 917 model donated brakes and the earlier RSR and 935 “provided suspension components, fabricated exhaust headers, clutch, gears, mechanical fuel injection, dry sump, front sway bar, and limited slip differential.”

With its 255 horsepower engine, SC/RS was the fastest normally-aspirated production Porsche model.

The German magazine AutoMotor und Sport recorded a zero-to-60 time of 4.9 seconds for a street-legal SC/RS.
