Highlights from Battersea RM Sotheby's Auctions Concours Sale

So £1.85m for the 993 GT2 is huge - but if it was hypothetically bought by an overseas Billionaire Porsche nut who wanted an LHD Maritme Blue - it was not going to make any noticeable dent in his finances - so the price reflects what those who can afford to play in this market - value a car at. 3 bidders were hot for this car - but imagine it has gone to the collection of a certain tech giant who has a serious Porsche collection and has wanted one of these for a while...

The Porsche 964 Turbo S Liechtbau hammered at £870,000 against estimate of £210k - £250k was big news - but that car WAS on the radar of an overseas Porsche nut to add to his collection

Did the re-shelled M471 LWT 2.7 RS with unstamped engine cases actually sell at hammer of £200k? Does this mean that a bitsa with Porsche identity - which will doubtless provide an identical driving experience to a matching original M471 - is valued at a mere 20/25% of an original "investment" car destined for storage? At that price you would be hard pushed to make a really good clone...Assume it was a no-sale?
