The Ferrari 348 - A close look at this classic sports car's performance, technical data, features, comparing rivals, history, used prices. The Ferrari 348 TB sports car, launched in 1989, was the replacement for the 328 and 308 Series which were, over a period of some fourteen years, amongst the best selling sports cars produced by Ferrari. The 348 was offered as both a TB Berlinetta coupe, and a Targa-style TS variant, where the "T" referred to the fact that the gearbox was positioned transversely. In line with the nomenclature of its predecessors, the "34" in the car's name referred to the engine capacity, whilst the "8" indicated the number of cylinders. The 348 TB represented the very first model to be announced since the death of the Ferrari founder in 1988. The body styling was by Pininfarina, and exhibited a distinct similarity to the Ferrari Testarossa, especially in relation to the side air intakes, and the rectangular-shaped rear lights.

The 360 GTC received its press release in late 2003 at the Bologna Motor Show, and was produced up to 2004. With collaboration from Michelotto, it was fully supported by Ferrari, and was developed with the aim of being a major force when entered in the GT Championship. The 360 GT, although it performed well on the track, struggled when competing with the likes of the Porsche 996 GT3, and it was for this reason that the GTC was introduced.
