Well, i've heard somebody talking about a Ferrari Testarossa Spider,
but i've never seen it or heard of it elswhere, so can some of you
confirm weather or not the Ferrari Testarossa spider exists?

I have seen pictures of a Testarossa Spider conversion. I believe the car is in the US.

By my knowledge no Testarossa Spiders left the factory, or maybe only one prototype, so the ones that exist are conversions.

Hi Testarossa Spider spotters,

there has been one official Spyder, custom made for Mr. Agnelli.
It's s/n 62987.

All other Spiders are conversions.

See attached image.

Regards,

Erik

Just for the records:

79230 is a US-version 328 GTS. The serialnumber of the Koenig Spider is very probably 79236.

79953 is probably also an error, and should be S/N 79593.

And to fill in some gaps:
70033 = coachbuilder
55925 = straman
88867 = pininfarina
75448 = coachbuilder
72695 = lorenz & rankl
71645 = straman

The one in Marbella is s/n 72695, a conversion made by Lorenz & Rankl. It is not the same one as on the picture in this thread, as that is the one and only real Testarossa Spider. If you see the car again, take a look at the rear engine lid, and you will notice the difference ... And if you see the car again: we would love to see some pictures

'91 Ferrari TR #86740 was apparently converted into a Spider in CA in the early 90's when it was new. Does anyone know the car. It might be possible that Eurotech did the conversion as the last straman TR Spider is shown as #79957. Is anyone familiar with the Eurotech conversions as far as quality, etc. compared to the Straman cars?

I have no records about #86740, sorry. However, where did you find that #79957 was the last TR chopped by Straman? Straman continued chopping for quite a while, even after TR production stopped. For example, Straman also did F512M #103779 and two 550 Maranellos ...
