Dunno, I'd have to say you're projecting a little bit here. Let's put aside the hyperbolic my engine will explode stuff-- it won't in the 987.2, it 99.9% won't in the 987.1, and it 92% won't in the 986-- (the widespread knowledge of this amongst Porsche people and indy repair shops resulting in Mr. Fix it companies coming up with the bore scoring drumbeat)-- the only folks who give a rat's behind about whether a 911 is or is not the only "real" P car are folks no one needs to have a conversation with. There are people out there-- I am one and your nice buyer is another-- who are not troubled by potentially expensive repair costs. A 300HP, give or take, 3000 lb car with superb brakes and a cheerful chassis for $25K? Yummy. Plenty of folks, like me, have had 911's. Fast(er) yes, more fun, errr no. I liked my impulse-buy '07 Boxster S so much, I ended up with a Cayman R too, which routinely gets passed by all kinds of high HP cars in DE's. But I need to point out, Of all the cars out there, Mustangs, Camaros, some crapped out Honda race car, which green Cayman R got all the love in the paddock, hmmm?
