PORSCHE PRESS KIT: 1982 LANDING PAGE
Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3 (MY 1982)
The presentation of the 911 SC Cabriolet at the Geneva Motor Show in March represents a milestone in the history of Porsche models. The open-top sports car is characterised by a redesigned cabriolet roof featuring three bows. In addition to ensuring dimensional stability at high speeds, the sheet-metal profiles integrated into the fabric hood also ensure low noise levels and provide excellent roll-over protection.
1982 sees new motorsports records for Porsche. The company scoops wins in almost all classes and special classifications at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as well as overall positions one to five. The first three positions are occupied by the new 956, the first Porsche racing car with a monocoque chassis and ground effect. Group 5 is won by a Porsche 935 K3, Group 4 by a 934, the IGTX classification by a 935 and the IGT classification by a 924 GTR. In addition to a triple victory in Daytona, other highlights of the season include the Manufacturers’ and Drivers’ Championship title at the World Endurance Championship, as well as the IMSA racing series.
