The Porsche 959 and the higher performance variations of the Lamborghini Countach were also sub 4 second 0-60 cars from 1986.

Some cars from the 1960s (notably the Ford GT40 and the Cobra Daytona Coupe) were also sub 4 second 0-60 cars. I suppose an argument could be made that they were really race cars but there were street legal versions sold and I would consider them the supercars of their era.
