NLA Parts?

Does anyone have a master list of the "major" parts that are NLA?

What are the most common hard to find parts?

I am considering another 914 (been away for 7 years) and am a bit worried about parts availability for the major things - brakes, clutch, engine, drive shafts, interior pieces etc.

The examples I have limited myself to llok at are rather complete and already restored or well maintained original cars, but heck, these things are 30+ years old!

1970 914-6
2000 Boxster 2.7, 1987 944
1978 911SC, 1976 914 2.0, 1970 914 w/2056

no list I know of, but there is a guy who has a shop 5 minutes from my office who has like 20 cars in various stages of completeness and a ton of parts. THe NLA stuff in some cases can be refurbished, roll bar pad for example, or Porsche breaks down and makes some more(targa/windshield seal) Mechanical stuff can be worked out, modified drive shafts from something else or aftermarket. You can get the NLA stuff, you just have to look.

"brakes, clutch, engine, drive shafts, interior pieces etc."
Of these, only the interior pieces are going to be particularly difficult.
PMB does brake calipers
A wide variety of clutches can be used, although some are very expensive.
Engines can be built by the vendor of your choice, or by yourself.
CV joints are generally NLA but alternatives do exist, especially suited for higher torque.
