 Of course, in fact, I have yet to come across anything resembling a flawless car, even from Japan! I think one of the challenges comparing Porsches to Corvairs is Porsches have ALWAYS been a lot more expensive, therefore they can afford a whole different level of engineering. It's no put down of the Corvair, it's just stating the reality of how it is. For the money, Corvairs offer more! Remember, Corvairs came with turbos well over a decade before 911s did! And when the first 911s appeared, a Monza Spyder or a Corsa turbo was quicker...

  Sure a few were porous, but I've seen WAY too many factory weld repairs to 
  Corvair crankcases that have come across my bench!!

Didn't mean to get you into a larger font John.  I was only 
pointing out that even the Porsches occasionally had "feet of clay" as 
well.  I've always admired their cars and engineering--even the four 
cylinder VW built 914s.  And my sons have always said that when "they make 
it" they will buy one for me.
