We have an 87 5000S Quattro (naturally aspirated) and I would say its
underpowered.  But its my wifes car and she's satisfied with the performance.
We've taken four adults up over the Sierra's and it pulled up the mountains
well.  It just doesn't go 0-60 very fast.  Kind of like the Mercedes 300. 

I guess it depends on your frame of reference.  I'm used to driving the 4000Q
and the 84 Carrera as my daily commute vehicles.
