Suspension components wear out, exhausts brackets rust, Coolant pipes can leak also, which is a front subframe out job. Clutch and flywheel generally dont last much more than 60k miles, and the clutch gets very heavy when its on its way out.

 

 

 

Ha, you've described my year of costs and maintenance!

Buying a high mileage car is not necessarily a bad thing at all. At the end of the day it's ALL Porsche albeit with a few more marks and general wear. you'll save a considerable amount of money and as long as the suspension and engine mounts are good you'll get the same driving experience as a minter for half the price (maybe).

Don't worry about engines at this level, go for the best car with best service history and maintenance, check it's had a recent clutch/flywheel/RMS as this can be a costly job. Brakes are cheap to overhaul back to factory specs and you could get them painted (calipers to freshen up looks. Wheels the same. 

It will be helpful if you can work on the car yourself, most of the cost of garage bills these days is labour.
