    “Production Run”. I know at some point it was the 456 but has it been surpassed yet ? Just curious. Still, it was a notably small volume for such a long production run that It is interesting.

    The 456 was 93-98, so 6 years. The 456M was 98-03, so another 5 years not double counting 1998.

    365 GT4 2+2 (actually a rebodied, longer wheelbase 365 GTC/4) 1973 (GTC/4 1971), 412 85-89, so 17 years for that body style, 19 if you want to count the GTC/4.

    Or 250 GTs with Colombo engines 1952-1964, 13 years with widely varying body styles.

    Great post @tazandjan
    The Mondial series ran for 14 years (1980-1993)

    Looks like the 458/488/F8 is running right at 13 years assuming we have a 2021 F8.

    I think the low production numbers had to do with the high price.

    When it came out in 1992/1993 - the list price was 225ish, inflation-adjusted that is over 400K in today's dollars.

    The 456 and 456M were the most expensive cars in Ferrari's regular production line-up. More than contemporary Maranellos.

    I noticed no substantial price increases from 1992-2003. In essence what this meant was Ferrari was 'lowering' the price of the 456 every year.

    Makes sense, I do believe they overpriced it back in 1992 with a ~220 price tag. 2003 was I believe just around ~240.
