Fer­rari 328 GTS (1986-1990) There’s no bet­ter head-turner than a Fer­rari and this V8 model is an af­ford­able en­try to the brand. Beau­ti­ful coupe with great per­for­mance and han­dling, but won’t match the Porsche Turbo. Drive it away for $55,000-$100,000. BMW840Ci (1993-2000) A coupe in the tra­di­tional grand tour­ing style with good per­for­mance for such a heavy car, but was dis­missed as a per­for­mance pre­tender by sports-car buffs who thought it was soft. Buy it for $30,000-$60,000. Mercedes-Benz SL500 (1993-2002) Big lusty V8 sports car per­fect for a Sun­day cruise, but lacks the ex­plo­sive per­for­mance and chal­leng­ing han­dling of the turbo Porsche. Can’t match the Porsche for reli­a­bil­ity and doesn’t hold its value like the Turbo. Buy it for $50,000-$110,000.
