Same reason you described. Why provide a new starter, alternator, water pump, ect if the problem was a piston ring or internal? A long block is block and heads, so it sounds like the failure involved both. ( valve ) Everything else is transferred over. ( and still new ) a simple call to the dealership will provide exact details of the failure. After all, it's HIS car and if they ordered an engine, you can be DAMN sure they pinpointed the failure and it's extent.
Agreed, with that amount of cash into a car, one hour with an attorney to be told exactly what your legal relief may be seems CHEAP.
Having said that, Porsche should be offering one HELL of a loaner, and an extended warranty over the engine.
OP, If your health is intact, be thankful and work out the details while you wait for an engine. You're not alone. Ask some members with IMS bearing failures how they feel about Porsche.
