    I just figured out the production numbers for the most "common" ferrari the 308/328 ,during it's production span 1975-1989, after 15 years of production and several different versions (Fiberglass,GTB,GTS, QV etc.) alltogether:
    BTW is interesting to realize a 308 was less expensive than a Porsche Turbo in the 70s.
    308/328 = 20697 cars or average of 1380 cars every year 1975-89
    348 = 8212 cars or average of 1642 cars every year 1990-94

    Does anyone know the production rate annually or monthly of the 360 and the 355 too.
    is the 360 destined to become the most common ferrari ever? and therefore the least expensive in the future?

    According to a June 1978 C/D article the 78 GTS was base priced @ 36,411.00 and the Turbo less than 35k.FWIW

    355 Berlinetta... 4915 from 94-99.
    355 GTS = 2577 from 94-99.
    355 Spider = 3714 from 94-99.
    355 Challenge = 67 from 94-99.
    355 All = 11273 from 94-99.

    360 = approx 3000/yr from 99-04 = approx 15000


    Yes.


    No. Most depreciated 8 cylinder, maybe. But it will tend to stay more expensive than the 355 which will stay more than the 348 and so on... with the exception of the truly rare models (like less than 100).

    I have a 1989 Black on Black 328 GTS (13,000 miles). I believe that for the last year of this model, Ferrari made only 1000 GTS (US cars). I also believe that out of 1000 GTS, 87% were Red. If thats true then 130 cars were split between silver, blue, white and black. If these numbers are true, then that would make mine and anyone else with a 1989 that is not red, have one out of about 30 cars. Does anyone have more specific production numbers for 1989? And possibly broken up between colors? I would appreciate it.

    The numbers I have for 308's (from FML) agree line for line with those above, except that I show 1743 (rather than 1749) for GTSi's. "My" total is thus 12143.

    However, the same source shows 7412 328's. that would be a grand total for 308/328's of 19,555

    only 67 355Challenge cars? I find that hard to imagine (although I'd like to believe it)! How did you verify that number?

    I never understood why 328s are included in 308 figures, but 355s are not included in 348 figures. (or vice versa)

    Actually, I find that number strange as well... that's how the math worked out using two different sets of numbers from the Standard catalog of Ferrari 1947-2003 by Mike Covello. Either an error or a typo is certainly possible.
