Ferrari 348 GTS - 1993


348 GTS


This two-seater convertible offered the same specifications as the 348 GTB, with the choice of open or closed-top motoring and a layout that had by now become a Ferrari classic: as on the outgoing TS, the hard top was stowed away in the space behind the seats.

Ferrari 348 GTS - 1993

Styled by Pinifarina

Virtually identical to the 348 GTB in terms of its engineering, the 348 GTS was a two-seater convertible in the classic Ferrari mode of the time and was also styled by Pininfarina. The 348 GTS had a steel and aluminium body and its removable top was stowed in a compartment behind the seats. Its aerodynamics had been refined for use at high speeds and had been honed with particular care to avoid the usual discomforts of an open-top car.Its interior volumes and driver position were designed for maximum comfort given its sporty set-up. The seats and interior trim were a plush Connolly leather.
