You sound like me about Ferrari for about 30 years. I could never stand the fact that they charged so much for the cars and couldn't be bothered to make them sensible to maintain or run reliably, and it really killed me that everyone just shrugged their shoulders and said "Eh, it's a Ferrari."
The cars from the 360 forward are much better for maintenance and reliability while still being true Ferraris, and now everyone's bitching about the old days.
That said, the M96 engine issues did sour me on Porsche a bit as well. I like the R8, but my top pick would be a V8 Vantage.
