Normally Aspirated Engines - Are they becoming collectibles?

Have we reached the era where normally aspirated engines become collectibles?

Everybody is introducing turbocharged engines across all models of their cars. Benz and BMW have done it. Mini has done it. I now hear rumors about Porsche doing it and base Carrera having 2.9L turbocharged engine. I understand that reducing the size of the engine and adding a turbocharger improves efficiency and gets you better gas mileage. On the other hand we have some Japanese manufacturers (Mazda, Honda, Toyota) who are sticking to NA engines and they are building high-compression engines which also increases efficiency and improves gas mileage. 

So the NA engines are still here to stay.
