911 is the sum of its parts; engine is just one aspect and I agree thats an area where BMW gives them a run for their money. But their chassis engineering and build quality on 997.2 and newer are fantastic. They weigh less, carry their weight differently and do everything right from seating position to pedal position for heel toe etc. Just feels like that extra effort is there to make it a driver's car. But if you try to justify the purchase by value per $ you'll never be able to justify it. Its an expensive luxury item that can't be understood in those terms alone. I couldn't justify the price delta until I suddenly had a lot more money on hand and it became less of an issue. Their prices defy gravity just like its handling.
