Which one is better (or less worse on the engine)?
Its a sports car, and its turbo'd, which means it revs quicker, parts are lighter, and the whole drive train is connected to it will take the "beatings" a owner will dish out. So it will wear out more rapidly than a pick up truck, a family sedan, and any other ride you can think of. Reliable sports car? No such animal, reliable hot rod? No such animal.

You should always possess a healthy credit card when owning a super car. Fast Freddy!
