    Here you go. E39 M5 2.0 to honor our history.

    Something cool like that. Why not?
    Porsche did that with anniversary Porsches, giving 911s of the 35th and 40th anniversaries small retro mods which the public ate up.

    Not to mention their small run-off production of various 911s throughout the years, which all fetched ungodly sums of money.

    at the cost of parts nowadays for the S85, Id prolly stick to an S62 variant. $1000+ for each vanos gear when they used to be like $150? eff that.

    The S62 isn't anywhere near the league of the S85 or S65 for that matter. Whatever the parts cost, it's worth it. The S62 is meh.
