If you asked me what car of the 1980s that captured the optimism and momentum of this decade, the Porsche 911 Turbo would be it. A little over a decade in since this wild Porsche had gone on sale and it had become a legend. This car was revered and feared for its power, as it was never an easy car to handle with all that power swung out behind the rear axle. Those who mastered the nuances of this car would be rewarded. While most people would be satisfied with the 282 horsepower the standard Turbo provided, plenty of folks tuned up this Stuttgart hot rod to even greater heights. Such is the case with this 1986 911 Turbo for sale from our reader, Jim, in Jacksonville, Florida.

With almost 400 horsepower at the rear wheels, this Turbo is sure to give some later air-cooled turbos a run for their money. Given the mileage of this Turbo, I’d say it’s priced rather accurately given that most good 911 Turbos of this era will start in the high $30,000 to $50,000 range.
