I've been a long time turbo car owner. Been driving evos and DSM's for the last 14 years, so I do miss a turbo car's power delivery. But I love having top end too! I'm guessing the N54's lack of top end can be fixed with larger turbos. Turbo cars appeal to me because they're usually pretty easy to extract extra power via turning up the boost. I salivate at the thought of a driving a turbo car with top end and RWD.
Apprecite the point of few.

This is a second car so that doesn't really matter.

Wanting the S65 along with the interior room and the more luxurious feel

The 1M is indeed fun but feeling more for a GT as you have mentioned.

May just go this route.

Funny point of view.
