Carrera's do not have the RMS issues you speak of. The GT3 dry sump does. The engine was designed to operate with a vacuum. The designed RMS adds a few ponies, according to Porsche. Garage queens suffer this fate much more than driven cars. LSD in a 911 isn't really that bug a deal. I may be wrong but I'm not so sure that the US 996 turbo has LSD. It was optional on the 997 turbo.
Paranoid? Not sure how that word would apply, I was just curious why you change your post that said you agree with what I said, which was all correct as you said

Last I checked they all have RMS issues especially the carreras, not sure where you are getting your info:

LSD in a RWD high powered sports car is a big deal. The MkI 997 does not have it, there is a reason Porsche included it with the MKII. Probably because the Cayman was right on its heals without an LSD... it is not as big of a deal with AWD.

Didn't you have a 997S? Or you were getting one? Something along those lines, and with you currently owning a 997, I think that may be your bias showing through. I can't think of a reason to get a wet sump 997 over a 996 turbo other than if someone puts looks over performance.
