2003 FERRARI 360
Spectacular car! One small problem was that my local Ferrari mechanic noticed a dent and body damage (not easily visible) that he thinks was caused by an accident. But the carfax came in clean! I don't know what to think about that!

1990 FERRARI 348
My lifelong dream has been to own a Ferrari, but this was not the one to buy. Clutch was worn out, key does not operate driver's side door lock, speedometer sensor does not work, various other electrical problems. Cost to fix will run into thousands of $$$$. I made the mistake of not getting Carfax report beforehand. My bad!

Used Ferrari Information
Ferrari is a premium Italian luxury sports car manufacturer. Founded in 1929, the company began building race cars and has been a dominant force in Formula One racing since its founding. Ferrari is majority owned by Fiat and produces some of the most exclusive and sought-after vehicles on the road.
Nearly any Ferrari model you name is a collector's car. They are exclusive, with the highest production in any year being 7,318 cars in 2012. Most years see fewer than 7,000 and until 2007, numbers of vehicles built were under 5,500.
Instantly collectible supercars from the Ferrari line include the F40, F50, 599 GTO, and LaFerrari. Other sports tourers include the Berlinetta Boxer and the infamous Testarossa. Touring cars include the 400, 412, 456, F355, 360, F430, 458, Scaglietti, California and FF. Gran Turismo cars include the Maranello, 599, and Berlinetta.
Without exception, ever Ferrari on this list is a sought-after car. Limited production, low turnover (owners tend to keep them), and high price tag all mean exclusivity. The used Ferrari market is as fast-paced as are the cars in it.
Highest on the list of cars sought by used buyers is the Testarossa, especially the 512 TR and F512 M models built from 1992 to 1994 and 1994 to 1996 respectively. These mid-engined, 12-cylinder road beasts are the most iconic of Ferrari's lineup and the car most-often associated with the nameplate.
The Testarossa replaced the Berlinetta Boxer, which began production in 1973 and ran successfully until 1984.
Current Ferrari models include the California T, the 458 Italia and Spider, the F12berlinetta, the FF, the 458 Speciale, and the LaFerrari (just recently introduced). The non-collectible used Ferrari market, if it exists, is mainly in the trade of these seven vehicles. The California T, FF, and F12berlinetta are all grand touring models while the others are sports cars. The FF, F12berlinetta, and LaFerrari are powered by V12 engines while the others are V8s.
