Oh what the heck....
Go for a 928 and throw a good ole 'Merican Chebby V8 under the hood.

I understand that a 5.7liter with aluminum heads weighs less than the 
stock engine.

Check it out:

I would LOVE to do this, alas I don't have the time or the money right now.

It is in good shape but the Red paint has oxidized and needs major compounding or maybe paint, but I did not see any rust and no noticaeable dings.  Major mechanicals are in good condition, but need some exhaust repairs, timing belt, window switch fix, among some other minor by my standards fixes.  The car ran and drove well and appears to have been well maintained.
