How did you come up with this kind of information? I searched for one minute, and found already TWO cars with a higher serialnumber which were in "operating condition" in 2003. Sorry, but this "fact" is not really significant. Why don't you just mention "one of the last cars made" (which is more true). Just my opinion ...

Re: Ferrari VIN 58939

Thanks for the info. i used the info from Ferrari 308 Register and there was only one newer car than mine but it is a USA spec. Are either of the ones you mention Euro specification? My apologies as am not trying to mislead at all. Many thanks as would love to find Euro specification 'sisters' to this car. All help is always appreciated.

Enjoy the Drive,

Steven

Sorry that I sounded a bit "angry" in my first message. But I guess I sometimes see too many "facts" which are not correct. Some are on purpose (which I hate!), but some are not, of course ...

The two cars I (quickly) found are both European cars, although one is in fact a Swiss version (which is different in some way). But nevertheless, your car is certainly "one of the last cars" ha:
