Sound advice and opinions above.
However, if you are like me, and don't do much of the maintenance or troubleshooting and fixing yourself, the key is to have a shop close by that really knows these cars. I had an issue with my ignition box right after I had purchased my car. Since I did not know any better, I took the car back to the dealer, who as it turns out had no clue either and had me get a new WUR to replace a perfectly good one (as it turned out when B. Leask checked it out) and did some analysis until paralysis for which they charged me close to $2,500. Another outfit fixed my original problem but caused another one down the road. To cut a long story short, I have discovered a rock solid Porsche shop in my area that now does all my work. The co-owner has been building Porsche engines for the last 28 years and I no longer have to worry about questionable workmanship.
So, my point is: Availability of unquestionable knowledge, solid skills and experience in maintaining these cars is really important. If this is not available, it can get expensive.
