I probably shouldn't be jumping in here, but opinions are what
you asked for... If funds are an issue, then a early 90s coupe,
son-of-urQ, might fit the bill while preserving an urQ for the
purists (but pissing off the Coupe fans).  The entry fee for an
urQ would be more than the Coupe.

Don't undersell the I-5. It is built like a bomb shelter. I've
run mine out of oil 3 times now (blow oil cooler line each
time), and it's still running strong at 233K miles. I've heard
reports that it can take the boost. I don't doubt them.

If it is ultimate power and speed you are looking for, try
dropping a 4.2L V8 with twin turbos into a coupe. "If more
is better, then too much is just right." You may have trouble
making it all fit, but it would boogie. You can probably get
what you need off a new wrecked S6. And I suspect that
parts for this are more readily available in Germany.
