I guess there are many valid points for the premium price but also as stated when the boost kicks in there is no other feeling like it you just can't get that from a NA car. Oh Snap if the case was that a super clean M491 was more than an average 930 that would make sense and sorry for starting another thread on this did not realize there were others. But I have seen super clean 930's for costing between 10k to 15k less than an M491 so to me this still makes no sense. I guess my love of the 930 just makes my opinion biased but either way after owning the "real thing" I feel that is the only way to go.
Different people have different opinions. No insult taken. Having the pleasure of owning both I would say: Yes the boost is a thrill, but where I live, that boost is very dangerous. All the roads around here are curvy with very little straight aways. If the boost just happen to turn on the wrong time (I have to watch the tach constantly), off the cliff I would go. Saying the previous statement, I prefer to drive the M491 over the 930 up here with less worries. Both cars have advantages and disadvantages. Both are great cars and after driving both vehicles I understand why the M491's are as high if not higher than 930s. (Most people don't care about how much horse power, how fast you can go, and a lot hate the lag in the 930.) Also, the 80's styled Porsches are getting near the (being noticed) car collector stage due to the fact these cars are becoming collectable. The low production is a huge factor in why the M491's takes such a premium. There's a lot of demand but very little to pick from.
