    According to my knowlegde there were no 95 348 TS models produced. From late 94 onwards the 355 Berlinetta and GTS models had taken over from the 348. The 348 Spider stayed in production alongside them, untill the 355 Spider was introduced about mid 95.
    But perhaps someone knows something about a 95 348 TS which I don't...

    The 348 was replaced by the F355 in March 1994 (exept the Spider, wich was replaced in spring 1995). So, although not many, there must be some other 1995 348-versions around beside the Spider.

    But to be correct, those 1995 348's weren't badged ts and tb, but 348 GTS and GTB. Just a detail, but the ts/tb ('89-'93) and GTS/GTB ('93 untill F355) have some differances...

    The GTS/GTBs were never sold in the US. Factory Challenge cars were sold in the US for MY 1994. According to the registry Martin gave me there were no 95 TS/TBs. I'm just curious to know.

    I didn't knew that...
    That's strange...
    Regarding my information the tb/ts versions were replaced by GTB/GTS versions worldwide... after the Frankfurt Motor Show 1993... I guess that's wrong then...

    So the US-cars (exept Spider, SS and Challenge of course) stayed badged like ts/tb then? In Europe your car would be a GTS, regarding the age, bodywork coloured side skirts and bumpers, chromed Cavallino up front,... I saw your profile, nice car... :)

    Okay this comment has confused me completely.

    So we stated here that production of the non-Spyder version of the 348 stopped in March 1994 ... how then can 1995 non-Spyder versions of 348 exist then?

    Ferrari did not make them for 9 months before 1995 started!.

    OR are we saying that if you ordered a new Ferrari, that in March 1994 the orders for the 348 were stopped, and from then on you had to order the 355?

    :eek::eek: Sorry, I totally messed things up! Where was my mind? You're absolutely right! There can't be '95 348's beside the Spider... :eek::eek: The last non-Spider versions were produced in 1994!

    I know, it is confusing as most books contain incorrect or misleading information. Here is more information on various 348 models.

    http://www.ferrariclub.com/faq/348versions.html

    As to the original question, I thought it may be possible for a 1994 produced (out of factory) TS but designated as a 1995 model. But if they ended TS/TB production in March 94 (which is early in the year), I do not believe there could be any 95 TS/TBs.

    Many thanks for that link :) Very valuable information there... You're right about the books...

    I didn't believe in a '95 ts/tb anymore either but after reading Jean-Louis'(jlm348) reply... I'm in doubt again... :) :rolleyes:

    note: I guess February 2003 has to be Feb. 1993? Glad I'm not the only one who made a mistake...
    However, that's 10months! So a '95 348 tb/ts could be possible after all??? :confused:
    They stopped production in March '94, but a car built in February '94 could be titled as a '95 if you follow this? Intresting and confusing...

    I guess we need some people with a '95 348 tb/ts here to be sure :)
