Jan Tore Magnus "Turbo" Svensson (born 10 March 1969) is a former football midfielder from Vinberg, Sweden. He has played 32 international matches and scored 2 goals for the Sweden national team, and was a squad player for the Euro 2000 and the 2002 FIFA World Cup.



Svensson's career started in Vinbergs IF, but he soon joined Halmstads BK in the Swedish Allsvenskan championship.
