2) impact on the auto industry
3) sense of "Cool"

A 2002 will outrun all but the hottest 356s. If the 2002 is a Tii, it will probably outrun any 356. This doesn't mean the 356 is slow or bad; the 2002 is simply a more modern car with a bigger engine, bigger tires, more modern suspension, etc. The basic 356 design originated in the 1940s, where the 2002 was designed in the early '60s and was far ahead of its time when new. I still covet a 356 convertible D, though!

Top speed? Who cares, if you want top speed buy something newer. Both cars are slow.
Impact on autos? Good question, both cars brought their companies recognition from the public. That's a toss up.
Sense of "cool"? No doubt, the 356 wins this category.
Value? Depends on your pocket book. You won't be able to buy a 356 anywhere close to what you can buy a 2002 for. A nice 356 coupe with no rust will fetch over $20k. Cabs and open cars well over $30k. The nicest 2002tii with s/r and a/c is $10k.

You are comparing two totally different cars here. As a collector of both marks, I would say buy the nicest one you can afford. But, don't try to restore either one unless you want to do it for the love of the mark. And, if you think that 2002's rust, lookout when you start looking at 356's.

Good luck, Matt

You're smoking crack if you think the nicest Tii is only worth $10k. Try more like 15-20. If you do know of a rustfree, totally original '72 for only 10, please let me know.

I own both, a 72 Tii and a 63 S90. I like the looks and quality of the S90. But I like driving the Tii better. The Tii is more fun to zip around the country roads...
