The survey is based on number of repairs per 100 cars, over 3 years, right?
Wouldn't that unfavorably skew results away from cars being used for commuting vs pleasure? If people are putting 20k miles per year on their Camry but 3k miles per year on their weekend 911, wouldn't we all obviously expect the 911 to have fewer issues and be higher on the list? Doesn't seem genuine unless its comparing with similar mileage as well

Exactly. If a 911 was driven 12-20K miles per year like most do, would these cars be remotely as reliable? Sure, some things fail because of age, but most fail because of use. Most used 2016+ 911s for sale right now have less than 15K miles. LOL

I'm a huge Porsche fan and would kill to have a 993 gen or 997, but I'm not buying it that these cars are super reliable if you actually drove them like a normal car. I think the reliability numbers would plummet. Before buying my M235, I researched the running costs of a 996 and 997 911 on Renntech and they were crazy high and that's not factoring the IMS debacle, head issues, and oil leak issues that seem to plague many of these cars.

Most late model car-based BMWs also have pretty good "long term dependability" but that's largely because the owners trade them up after 3 years. My 2016 M235 has been bulletproof after 3 years and 31K miles of hard driving, but I fully expect reliability to plummet and running costs to sky rocket in 1 to 3 years.
