Having owned one in the distant past I post the following:
Rubber seals on the boost chamber need to be looked at (sometimes they are straight plastic and not rubber, which deteriorates over time)
Rubber "O" rings on the intake pipes need to be looked at.
Did I mention the rubber bits and pieces of the fuel injection system (a vacuum assisted set up with miles of vacuum lines).

Finally, and you know this from our ride down to check out that GT2, check for timing chain noises.
It all really boils down to maintenance and how it was stored. Just because it has low mileage (I am assuming it does if you are considering it for a DD), does not mean it has aged well. I highly (H-I-G-H-L-Y! ) suggest you find a local Porsche shop (no other) to do a pre-purchase inspection.
