A friend/colleague has the unfortunate situation to have to retire his 1986 944 Turbo due to a cracked block and the lack of another replacement. He has maintained that car since new and tracked it too many times to remember. He has rebuilt the engine 3 times and now, during dyno testing, the block cracked due to a bad valve. So given the lack of replacement parts he is considering moving on to something "newer". The question is what should that be. He is a big guy like myself (at least 6ft, 200+lbs, and not a spry chicken). But he is an amazing driver and mechanic. For me, the ultimate car would be a GT4 but it is not the most serviceable car and comes with a good price tag. In my mind, the best choice is an SPB but they come with their own issues and not always readily available. So what would you suggest and bring the facts to back your suggestion? Thanks in advance - we have until next season but I am sure he would want to get started ASAP.
