I don't care for their looks, but with the potential of a bullet-proof engine, a turbo upgrade could be a nice, and potentially inexpensive alternative. I'm pretty set on a 911 or R8, however at this point.
I wouldn't say any engine is "bulletproof". I had heard that the R8 V8 engine is very reliable however mine failed at 28.5k miles. It got a brand new engine but just giving you a heads up, and it aint cheap to replace.
