Let me venture a guess...the newer cars have higer comp ratios to support low and mid range performance, but at the expense of running lower boost. Run that kind of compression in an old 930 with .8 bar or more boost and she'll blow sky high. Plus, the newer cars with electronic fuel management and timing management can better deal with the boost and compression combinations.

Just a total non-expert opinion.
