Agreed! Just did 2,500 k's in Tasmania over a week in my 964. Did everything from keep up with current GTS Caymans and 991s on west coast targa stage roads (with the tight, tech stuff and the open, high speed stuff) and then spent four days touring the centre and easy coast with the Mrs. The car did everything I asked of it. Was highly capable on the rally stages and perfectly comfortable on the touring days. Now granted, my car is not stock but I put its capabilities down to the work we've done on suspension / geometry.
I think you either see value in that experience or you don't. Not trying to convince anyone here. Can just say that - on the road - a well sorted 964 is plenty quick enough and still delivers the air cooled vibes.
