I know of someone who just bought a 918 Spyder, a GT2 RS and RS 4.0 from my local dealership back at home in NJ and the RS 4.0 is going to be strictly a collector.
You hit the nail on the head.
How others feel about the S65 and s85 being the last NA engines is similar to how others feel about this being porsche's last Mezger engine. It's an end of an era, and this car will hold onto its value (after the initial depreciation of course).
