Compare the quality of a 1978 930 engine to anything else built in 1978.
If you have ever personally rebuilt one of these engines you will see the intricate parts and design that allow every engine produced to run at 80+% of redline for 24hrs straight. I don't think a 1978 Corvette would do that.

Fast forward to the present and the 930 is a dinosaur struggling to keep up. It is amiazing that they actually can still keep up, aircooled limitations and all. Don't sell your car short.
