Not all that long ago the Ferrari 308 was one of the most affordable Ferraris you could purchase. Times have definitely changed and a decent example will now cost you over $90k.

The prancing horse that was feature in Magnum PI is an icon of the 80’s. It’s stylish wedge shape and mid-mounted V8 are the formula for a vintage Italian sports car experience.

I instead bought a Porsche 996, which is a fine car for daily use (much better than the Ferrari), but as of yet hasn’t shot up in value like the 308; and it probably never will to the same extent.

Without further ado, here are 5 affordable Ferraris for 2018.
