The "new" carrara (84-89) will run 20k at least for a good example and frankly its performance is only good based on todays standards (0-60 @ 6sec and 1/4 @ mid 14's).
The 944 turbo S is based and the 944 european firehawk series and is a great performance value. It is the fastest porsche of the 80's (including the 930). Tough to find but porsche panorama has 3-6 of them each month for about 15K. The engine is solid and will handle 300hp will little difficultly. Stock it puts out 250 hp. $300 chip puts it up to 300hp and it should, peformance wise, go heads up with any porsch (not the TT of course), bmw, audi, vet (minus the z06)... new, used, or otherwise. And that includes the e46m....
