As someone who followed flat 6 Porsches closely on the forums, I concur. TBH, what I have learned over the years is that if someone says a Porsche engine has a problem but it's "not common" it's probably 10x as common as people think and we'll all know in 10 years.

The only new car out of the 50+ I've had over the last 20 years which needed an engine replacement was my [wife's] early 991 GT3 at less than 2K miles. Good times.

I've never been scared of engine replacements. If BMW, Porsche, AMG, or anyone wants to put a fresh one in there and warranty the work... have at it.
