There’s really no such thing as a “cheap” Ferrari. At best, you might call some of them “less expensive.” Still, it’s a shame that for true prancing-horse enthusiasts might still feel limited from entering the Ferrari club, despite having a reasonable budget. There are however a few Ferraris that you can afford for the same price as your neighbour’s Corvette.
308 (circa 1984)
These are a little more on the rare side given their vintage, they’re about $80,000 for a good one.
328 GTS (circa 1986)
They’ve got 80s cool written all over them. Expect to pay between $60,000 – $75,000 for a good one.
Testarossa (1986 – 1995)
Now I’m going to put a word of caution on this one. The Testarossa market is through the roof at the moment. Prices are skyrocketing and I’m not exactly sure why. Maybe it’s craving for 80s retro, maybe it was the Wolf of Wall Street bump. Either way, wait until the market calms down and scoop one up for under $100,000.
F355 (circa 1998)
This is the car that Jeremy Clarkson went insane over until he finally broke down and bought one. I actually found the same model he bough (a Spider convertible in red) for $64,000 on eBay.
360 (circa 2003)
Remember these? Remember how bad you wanted one ten years ago? You can forget about a Challenge Stradale, but a standard 360? It’s not totally unreasonable to think you couldn’t scoop one up for about $70,000.
F430 (circa 2006)
Boy did we all forget about this car when the 458 Italia came along, but don’t dismiss the F430. For starters, it actually had a reputation for reliability. But most importantly, it was the last time you could get a rear-engined Ferrari with a manual transmission. You won’t need to spend more than $100,000 to get one.
575 (circa 2005)
You might need to push the $100,00 mark here, but you’ll get a proper front-engine Ferrari GT car, and that’s far more interesting than neighbour’s Corvette or Porsche any day of the week.
