For an N/A go with 1988 if possible. Had the timing belt tensioner in it like 87 did, 10 more HP than all prior cars, and slightly better suspension I've heard. Not sure if going to 89 with the 2.7Liter, up from 2.5L , is worth the extra 4 HP. But if I had more $ at the time I'd have gone for an S2 (years available 89 to 91, I think) which upped HP to 208 from 158 on the 1988 N/A. But if you're a turbo guy I can't help you. Of course condition is a factor, so of course, buy a good condition 86 over a rough 88 any day.
