Porsche's 911 SC model

Cracking Porsche’s code!

Each Porsche’s model has an official name and an internal type number. Here are some practical aids to help you decipher the Porsche code.

CS – Available from 1992, the Club Sport (CS) version of the 968 had the same engine, but underwent a ‘slimming cure’ in order to get an extra-sporty character. Without power windows, rear seats and air conditioning, this version was undoubtedly less comfortable, but was significantly lighter and therefore faster than the regular 968.

GT – Similar to the GTS, the Gran Turismo (GT) suffix means a sportier version of the basic model. The name originates from motorsports, when it was used to homologate vehicles for the class with the same designation (GT). First appearing in 1955 with the 356 A 1500 GS Carrera GT, Porsche returned to this designation in 1989 when it launched the 928 GT.

GT Cup – Competition version, not approved for road use. Used, for example, in the Porsche Carrera Cup.

L – Synonymous with ‘Luxury’, the third version of the original 911 received this suffix in 1967.

SC – Introduced in the 1964 model year, the 95 hp 356 SC (Super C) was intended to mark the end of the series. Similar to this, the 911 SC (Super Carrera) was introduced in 1977, and was also initially intended to be the last 911 model. However, the series continued with the 911 Carrera 3.2.

Speedster – On Porsche’s Speedster models, the windshield was significantly lower when compared to the base model, which gave the car a more aerodynamic silhouette. In return, the driver had to sacrifice comfort with a substantially lower level of equipment provided.

T – Although it was also available as a Targa version, the T on the 1967 911 T stood for ‘Touring’ and therefore denoted a less expensive entry-level version of the classic vehicle with a less powerful engine.
