Sport Compact Car (or abbreviated as SCC) was an American car magazine that lasted from 1988 to 2009. Sport Compact Car focused on modifying and racing sport compacts, usually import model cars. This publication was known for having a more technical approach than most other typical import car magazines and for the substantial number of project cars they have developed. Sport Compact Car (SCC) was published monthly by Source Interlink, which acquired it from Primedia in 2007.

On November 21, 2008, Source Interlink closed "Sport Compact Car" after 20 years of continuous publication, amid a company-wide restructuring that resulted in the layoff of 115 employees. The final issue of "Sport Compact Car" was the March, 2009 issue.
