Porsche will continue the production for cars that are meant to be driven by real drivers. This type of real cars will be more rare and more expensive in the future. I think that there will be a time in near future where people that are truly passionate about their cars will create a market of older modified second hand cars.
+1 to this, though Porsche did fumble pretty badly with the introduction of electric steering in the 991 and the new Cayman.
