i really want to "update" the ride, if that makes sense

i recently put coils front and rear on a 66 mustang, and it was the greatest thing i did, i know you cant compare a mustang and a porsche, but i just like the "modern" feel of coils
60's technology vs 90's technology, there WILL be a difference. I am going the coil over route for different reasons than you. I have looked into bracing and I will be building a cage.

incorrect, a coil will react differently than a torsion bar, there are variable rate springs etc....
