Counterpoint here: 73RS is a better car than 74 Carrera, so your example doesn't equate as, unlike in this specific case, there's no ownership improvement.

T'is only more valuable if / when you sell it, or if you're looking for attaboyz from the concours/collector crowd. Otherwise. the updated improvements increase the driving enjoyment. Agree it is good idea to have original parts on hand for backdate conversion potential, but not for driving.

FWIW -- while I totally understand the collector interest in early 70's 911s (like DUH! ;-) I do not undersand early turbo interest because they are not good performers at all versus later versions. But ah well, hard to battle with emotional responses when it comes to collectors. Fascination with certain muscle cars = case in point. ;-)
