I recently (2 months ago) found a fantastic deal on a 997 Turbo which I think will keep me happy for quite a while as it provides Z06 (or better) type power while maintaining that European build quality and intangibles that most American car companies cannot provide. Just installed a Softronic tune and the car is making 575 crank hp on 93 octane and stock exhaust.
You can pick up '07 and '08 Turbos and GT3's for somewhere in the $70's these days.
I like the 997 Turbo! Nice that you found a great deal too. Its tempting to me, but like you want to wait for those in my price range If i need to change. RUF autocentre is down the street from where I live, and I am sure you have heard of them as a legendary P-car tuner!
