FPGA can achieve sufficiently good compatibility, wouldn't generalize and say it can't be as good as the real thing. If you wanted to, you could do an exact replica of the 68000, including bugs
Anyway, overclocked CPU designs from the 70's aren't the future IMO.
This project sounded interesting until the Vampire showed up. I'm pretty certain that the Vampire 500 v2 will reach the market before this one does.
(And remember.. the Vampire is a €150 product...)
