You have probably seen the work I've done to get a 2011 Turbo on the road. In preparation for long-term ownership, I would like to know what kind of life to expect of the turbos so that I may plan some budgeting. I'm a 90k on this one.
A positive: when checking on air suspension parts, a dealer parts guy said they have sold some front units, but never a rear air shock.

So your wanting to know turbo life expectancy? Generally speaking, if you let them properly warm up and cool down AND they were properly built…. A long time technically. I built numerous turbo cars and their all so different. Change the oil often, etc

I'm pretty cognizant of the proper treatment, but that's good to hear! Thanks!

I do keep an eye on things like turbo failures - and on the Cayenne's it's extremely rare. The ones I've seen reported as needing replacement are ones where the housing cracked for some reason. I can't recall seeing any with bearing failures.
