Launched at Frankfurt in September 1989, Ferrari’s new 348 ushered in a new era with its monocoque main structure. The V-8 engine was shared with the Mondial, enlarged to 3.4 liters and mounted longitudinally in a steel rear sub-frame with a transverse gearbox. Low and sleek, the Pininfarina-designed 348 provided continuity with the prior 308/328 models while sharing several cues with the dramatic Testarossa.

Capable of reaching 170 mph, the 348 utilized fully independent suspension with revised geometry and a low center of gravity, courtesy of the engine’s low placement within the chassis. Brakes were large-diameter discs with ABS. The 348 was initially available in “TB” Berlinetta and “TS” Targa form, and a full-convertible Spyder debuted in 1994. Production of the 348 continued through mid-1995 until the F355 succeeded the model.

Purchased new in late March 1990 in California, this 348 TB was originally finished in specially ordered Blu Medio (Medium Blue) with gray leather upholstery. A highly desirable two-owner example, it benefits from a major engine-out service performed in May 2014 at a cost of nearly $14,000 this 348 TB is accompanied by a letter from the original owner to the consignor with full history from new. It is further completed with a host of additional items, including books, records, tools, the original Bill of Sale and window sticker, and a CARFAX report.
