What I would like to see is how much would a balls to the walls quality 914/6 GT build bring? Even then I think it will struggle in the same way custom short hoods still haven't reached any high numbers.
Perhaps some oversight thinking this is a simple conversion.
Custom front engine mount
Custom oil lines, thermostat placement, and a big one, the oil tank. Lines to front cooler etc
Some varient of 914-6 exhaust is needed
and probably a host of other stuff I'm overlooking. These conversion parts are not readily available at economic prices like those needed to do a 912 to 911 conversion.

This particular BAT car was good for the buyer.
