1992 Ferrari 348 ts 3.4 V8
Pop star car
Center console gets sticky with age.
Since buying the car in February, it seriously has not disappointed me. It is everything you imagine driving a Ferrari to be, and more.
OK, it is not as well built as a Porsche (Previous car) and just shutting the door tells you that. In fact, its embaracingly tinny, and sometimes passengers shutting the passenger door point this out!
But on road its like a go-Kart on rails and is frighteningly quick. Very bumpy and not particularly comfortable, but if you want comfort, you don't buy a Ferrari.
Everyone looks at it driving down the street, and people point.. (which is weird) but cool.
At the end of the day it's a only car. As long as you don't drive it everyday, and don't put too many miles on it, it's definitely more affordable to run than you think.
My Porsche 944 S2 (cab) often cost me £800 for a service, and apart from the cam belt service on the Ferrari (approx £1300) its not much more expensive.
If your um ming and areing about going for one, just do it. But take your time, a scruffy one won't have been looked after and there are plenty of good clean examples around, and you'll know a good one when you see one.
Wicked car, Boxter/348...? 348 please mate.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am considering buying a late 80's or early 90's Ferrari. I have the money, but need to build up my courage. Your comments help me make a decision. I've been on the Ferrari bandwagon ever since thay took control of winning at Formula One again. I have seen a lot of good used ones out there and I'm sure i'll find one soon.
