LINE IT UP AGAINST
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.
