I have a vote for the other side of the fence.
The mechanic that did most of the body re-assembly on my car could have or build any Porsche he wanted. What did he drive? A completely tricked out C3 with SC flares and a 2.7RS spec engine.
He would regularly drive the car to a distant huge Porsche event, place in the concours, place or win the auto-x, place or win the road race event, then drive several hundred miles home.
I asked him why he didn't have a turbo. He said very frankly "they aren't as much fun to drive the way I like to drive". I road shotgun with him many times and have to agree. That man could drive.
