2016 Silverstone Auctions Porsche sale results

2016 Silverstone Auctions Porsche sale results

Something for everyone - solid results from Silverstone with about 2/3rds of the cars selling - we seem to be going back to auctions where a significant proportion of the buyers are actually enthusiasts who actually want to own and drive stuff - opposed to pure investment activity - which IMHO is a good thing.

Links to the full results at the bottom of the page - here a few highlights which seemed to represent good deals...

The Daily Driver - Porsche 996 C2 Manual

At 58k miles and fsh - including a £6k top end rebuild the car simply represents good value to actually drive and enjoy opposed to obsess about value - and although it obviously does have not the air-cooled fairy dust - the time will be coming soon enough for good original 996's to be recognised as analogue practical Porsches to actually drive(!)

The track car you can spank without guilt - Porsche 968 Club Sport

Another fun piece of kit which was sensibly priced was the Porsche 968 Club Sport which went for a smidgin under £25k.

Sensibly modified for track use - the car's original purpose - at this money you would want to take it to the 'Ring and Spa and give it a good ragging. Yes - today it is not exactly in the rocket ship class, but the lovely balanced handling of this model means you are going to spend a lot of the time on the limit harrying more exotic stuff where the owners are more circumspect...

The Collector Car - Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3

This 24k miles RHD 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3 5 speed went for £151,880 - originality, history and condition mean this will tick any collectors boxes and the mileage is not so low that you worry about taking for a spin - which with the later more "tamed" 3.3 Turbo here, is not meant to be literal...

The Restoration Project - Porsche 911 S 2.2 Coupe

Ok - we all know that restoration projects at today's labour rates and the market's current expectations of quality means that although the car was comparatively structurally rot-free - there's still going to be a ton of cash required to get this to pristine condition. That said - at the £43,990 sale price, you have £100k headroom to spend, to arrive at what retail is going to be for a mint restored example.

Although everyone marvels at how much "barnfind" stuff sells for - lets remind ourselves of why something like the car above causes a purchaser to pull the trigger:

- Not everyone has £150k to spend for a restored example needed today- Restoring a car can be a really rewarding process with the attendant stimulus of bringing something back to life- The owner restores it to precisely the standard/interpretation of originality he/she wants - absolutely factory standard original for top money or "hot rod" if you cannot afford an ST etc...- This car has been out of the public domain for a long time - there's always an allure to something which has not been seen on the market for sometime - for comedy value it's also low mileage!- "IF" it does not need loads of metalwork - it might cost less than one might think to restore and importantly if it has loads of "original" metal left in it - market should love it- The owner gets to remove that crap rear non-period spoiler off it...;)

Finally as a release from staring at PC's all day and the first world problems that today's Porsche owners get to content with, wouldn't be a nice thought to think that at the weekends you have a fabulous 911s project to burn some time on?

The memorabila sales also attracted healthy bidding - personally I am looking forward to receiving about 10 books by John Starkey, Petrolpics and others on aircooled R - RS - RSR stuff this week!
