I assumed that was not the actual plate for that car but a DVLA check shows it is indeed registered to a white 1980 Porsche of 1984cc

I requested DVLA release that exact plate as it had never been used in the past. They agreed to do so but would not sell it to me directly. Instead they added it to an online auction and suggested I bid for it. I placed the bid near the ending time and was gazumped by the exact same bid moments before mine was confirmed. There was no time for me to place a new higher bid. I lost it. Would have been £320 plus transfer fee. The plate was offered for sale some time later for circa £4k by a plate dealer. Newcastle OPC (iirc) built that turbo and bought the plate from the dealer....... hurts me more as its on a white/red turbo.

That's appalling. That's a 1250% profit.

Its business. The plate dealer got a bargain. No idea what OPC paid. Probably not £4k
