5 Ferrari Models We Wouldn't Take For Free (And 10 They Should Have Made Instead)

Ferrari has been widely regarded as the premier automaker in history, but they have made a few mistakes in their history. September 13th 1939 is a significant date for Ferrari enthusiasts. It was on that day founder Enzo Ferrari launched the company. Since then the company has expanded into one of the very best sports car retailers in the world. It’s inevitable. With such a long history comes to highs and lows. In this article we take a look at both sides. 10 rides we feature are so bad that you might not even want to take them for free. The value on some of these Ferrari models is truly shocking. Some can be purchased for as low as $25,000! Yea, that’s extremely low and price tag Ferrari doesn’t want associated with the brand. Along with the cheaper rides we’ll also feature some of the most dreadful modifications that ruined certain Ferrari models. Get ready to cringe because these are really bad – so bad that one is worth $1 million and you still probably wouldn’t take it for free. On the flip side we’ll feature a variety of concept rides that Ferrari didn’t go through with. This might be a regrettable decision. Whether it be performance on the inside or sleek design on the outside - Ferrari lovers wish some of these models would have been made. Not all are studs on the inside or outside, however when can all agree that the buzz generated by a model like the Modulo if mass produced would be well worth it! Enjoy the article folks and like always be sure to share it with a friend. Without further ado here are 10 Ferrari models you might say no to and 10 they should have made. Let’s get started! 5 Should Have Made: Ferrari Studio CR25 via oldconceptcars.com The buzz alone that could have been generated by this car make it worthy of production. However, back in the 70s Ferrari ultimately decided against this. Car Styling showcased some of the classic images of the ride and let’s just say lots of Ferrari lovers were left wondering what could have been had this ride made it passed the concept stages and into the production line. Is it a prototypical Ferrari design? Absolutely not. However it is one that could have worked based off its unique look alone. It was also more than worthy of the wacky 70s.
4 Wouldn't Take For Free: Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 via rmsothebys.com Top Speed sums up the Ferrari 365 line perfectly, “possibly the most confusingly named series of products since the advent of mass manufacturing.” Ferrari went off the map with some of these designs. The real kicker is that most of the car types looked nothing alike. The overwhelming reaction was a dud followed by another dud. This was a dark line for Ferrari and one of the most forgettable. It was made to have an affordable price point similar to the Dino. The car saw 524 models produced, more than enough some might say. It was replaced four years after its launch by the Ferrari 400. The car is almost identical with little differences.
3 Should Have Made: Ferrari 250 GT SWB via rmsothebys.com It doesn’t look like a classic Ferrari but what a beauty this ride is. According to RM Sothebys it doesn’t sell for cheap these days with a disturbing price tag valued between $9 to $10 million – yikes. The ride was unveiled all the way back in the late 1950s. Ferrari was applauded for creating a lighter ride, and they would use this framework for various future models. The car has multiple purposes according to RM Sothebys, it was suitable for the road and racing purposes. It lives off its legacy these days, Car and Driver calls it “the greatest automotive engine in the world today.” Serious praise.
2 Wouldn't Take For Free: Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 via mecum.com Oh the Dino. Likely one of the worst Ferrari types ever created. The idea behind the ride was a good one trying to create an affordable Ferrari. However we have seen this mindset fail time and time again due to a dud on the inside. Jalopnik asks if a Ferrari enthusiast would still turn down a 308 Dino at a price tag of $22,000! Rob Emslie also explains that the ride was initially intended for the Lamborghini Urraco, another underwhelming model. Though Lambo turned down the shape. Basically what was Lambo’s loss turned out to be an even bigger loss for Ferrari.
1 Should Have Made: Ferrari Dino Concept via pinterest.com So we just discussed a dud of a Dino and we know transition to a stud of a futuristic Dino and one we want Ferrari to create. Car Magazine had the car world buzzing when it released photos of the V6 project. Not only were images leaked but an actual prototype is said to be hitting the streets these days – though Ferrari has yet to confirm or deny a year later. It won’t come cheap with a rumoured price tag of over $350,000. However Car Magazine claims it’ll be loaded with goodness if produced; “The new sports car will be based on Ferrari's new, flexible architecture destined for most of its range; the platform will be crafted largely from aluminium to trim weight; and, in the case of the Dino, it will be powered by a new 2.9-litre V6 available in two power outputs, one of which may be a plug-in hybrid range-topper. The rumoured performance figures are prodigious. On its own, the 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 is good for 610bhp and 443lb ft, sources say.”
