This actually sounds pretty trick but why not use the 944 turbo.
I do however have to disagree about Audi vs. Porsche repair bills.
As a former owner of both a 79 930 and a current maintainer(wife's)
82 911 I feel that the audi repair bills are just as bad if not worse
in some cases. Being that most of us here do all of our own service
the parts are the real expense.
Ok, now I'll go put on my nomex suit and await your replys.
