930 Engine longevity.

I'm considering buying a stock 1982 930 with 100,000 miles. It appears to have been well maintained but the engine looks to be untouched. Assuming a 'normal' driving profile (i.e. no track work, reasonable mix of town/country driving etc), at what point do these engines need work?

I'm familiar with NA Porsche engines, having built several, but not turbos. I assume the bottom ends are relatively bullet-proof? And I suspect that the top end has to handle higher temperatures which may compromise longevity? Any input most welcome. TIA.
