I researched all this when I was deciding between an '01 Boxster and an '05 Mustang GT.

I got the Mustang. After 3 years of ownership, it hasn't caught fire.
+1 As a Porsche Tech you couldn't give me a water cooled flat motored car made before 2006. Even then I'd trade it for a new 5.0 Mustang and never worry about out of this world maint and the costs that go with owning German junk......

Not only that, but there's a bunch of chemicals and stuff under there that can become lethal. I'm sure the firefighters around here would agree.
