    What are Testarossas going for lately? I've been looking for a while and have seen that many are in the mid to high $60k's. I'm in the market for a Testarossa 1987+, preferably with the lower skirts painted and a Tubi exhaust system. Must have the majors done. Does anyone know any for sale? I've looked on ebay, dupont and decided to post.

    Thanks.

    You forgot www.ferrariads.com
    If you don't mind going through a dealer do a search for The Car Experience.
    We have a member here that is also in the business;
    Martin at Cavallino Motors, www.4ferrari.com

    Go to Yahoo and type in 'Testarossa for Sale' in search and you'll get 10 pages or so

    Rerun, I'm doing the same search right now, and most cars are listed with dealers, and the prices are higher than what folks have suggested a good price would be. Many dealer cars have had majors, but few are recent - most 4 years ago or so...If you find a car, but decide to pass on it for what ever reason, let me know...

    Good luck!

    I'll let you know. I also noticed many cars at dealers in the mid 70's. Which is too high for me. I'm also looking at the 348's now.

    I would sell mine for under $60k. I put a tubi on it this past year and performed the engine out service for the fourth time. My car is pretty clean but still driven weekly. It's a red 1986 USA model with the better seat belts and the single spline wheels and the high single mirror. I think I just turned 28,000 miles this week. I have all documents and receipts and books and tools and you name it, it's all there just as it should be. I'm taking it to Ferrari of Houston this month to repair a ding on the rear quarter panel and the front spoiler and I was thinking of painting the lower panels red while it's there. I just replaced the battery, steering rack, rebuilt the altenator and fixed the A/C switch this week.

    These are fun cars. I think I would like to try a 355 next.

    I noticed in a recent Ferrari Market letter that the TRs have shown some slight appreciation in value in the past year. I know price will vary depending upon mileage, year, and condition, but as a whole have the TRs have hit the bottom of the market? Or will they continue to drop??
