Porsche racing legacy not my reason to buy

I've read quite a few threads regarding Porsche's lack of commitment to racing and, maybe I'm missing the boat but, what does that have to do with driving away would-be buyers? I didn't fall in love with Porsches because they were winning races way back when. I fell in love with the look and then researched their specs in Road & Track. But I don't think a car manufacturer nowadays has to necesarily win or even participate in racing to produce a car with similar numbers. I just think the 996 and Boxster aren't distinctive enough to warrant their hefty price tags. The Carrera GT is but who's gonna cough up half a mil for it?
