5 Affordable Ferraris for 2018

Ferrari 308 GTB

Ferrari 308

Five years ago I wrote about 5 affordable Ferraris. What a difference half a decade can make. At the time you could purchase a decent Ferrari 308 GTB/GTS for less about $30,000. Now that same car is worth close to $90,000!

Needless to say, it is time to update the list as $90,000 is only cheap to someone who can already afford a newer Ferrari. Incidentally, one of my largest regrets in my “car life” is not purchasing a 308 that I had found for $25,000.

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.

Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and GT4

Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and GT4

Aston Martin has unveiled their new customer racing Vantage GT3 and GT4. The competition machines will make their first public appearance at the top endurance race in the world; the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Aston Martin Vantage GT3 will make its racing debut this weekend in the Michelin Aston Martin Racing Le Mans Festival. Both costumer racing machines are the polar opposite of the British performance car maker’s road cars. Where those are luxurious GT cruisers, the GT3 and GT4 are stripped no-nonsense motorsport machines. Having said that, they are still gorgeous to behold.

Here are all the details we know at this time.

The Ultimate Porsche Cayman GT4

The Porsche Cayman GT4 in many ways is the best high performance car for the street. It has plenty of usable power with 385 horses, is fairly lightweight by today’s standards, the engine is in the middle and it has suspension parts from the 911 GT3. The Cayman GT4 provides a race car for the street experience that doesn’t need a track to enjoy.

For those fortunate enough to buy the GT4 before it sold out (and not including the massive dealer markup), for about the price of a base 911 Carrera, you could get the GT4 with 35 more horsepower, mid-engined balance and more aggressive styling.

Yes, the Cayman GT4 is an excellent car, but can it be made just a bit better?

The Best Porsche Cayman GT4 You Can Buy

Sharkwerks' Porsche Cayman GT4

Sharkwerks’ Porsche Cayman GT4

The Porsche Cayman GT4 just may be a perfect car. It has suspension components from the track tested 911 GT3, an engine from a 911 Carrera S and a six-speed manual transmission all in a mid-engined package.

The GT4 is perfect for track days, weekend drives on a winding road or a daily commute. The styling gives a hint that this is not a normal Cayman in the same way a GT3 separates itself from Carrera. But can it be even better?
