For the sake of satisfying my personal curiosity and finalizing an argument with a fellow Ferrari enthusiast, which of these vehicles do you think will retain the most value over the next 10 years.

575 Maranello
360 Modena
360 Modena Spider
456

In this case, we can just say that all of them are 2003 models... Let me know what you think...

By the way, I personally think the 575M takes the cake...

Hey, the 456 is like the 550. It is no longer being made.

MY VOTE IS 550.

8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

The 575 for sure. Reasons:

1. 456 is a 2+2 and all 2+2 Ferraris don't get as much respect even though they should.
2. The production numbers for the 360 are far to high

575, indeed because 2+2's loose their value like a brick falling out of a plane, 360's are built way too many, and the 575 is a nice cruiser with a timeless design. Don't know anout the 550, I think more people would like the 550, but since the 575 is newer I think it keeps it's value better.

I agree with whats been posted already.

The 456, while a great car is a 2+2 and its value will hit the floor soon. The 360 is now being replaced (if not by equal but greater numbers) by the f430 so it, in any form, will depreciate greatly.

I, to be honest, dont understand the 550 vs. 575 (fiorano handling) debate. There must be a driving force behind the 2 models/argumetns (other than the obvious) that Im missing. Maybe someone can clarify (in detail)?! Either way, the 550/575m will not depreciate as bad as the 456 or the 360/spyder.

from what I have read, the 550/575 is destined to become a future "Daytona" in legend and status.

The 550 also made the Forza list of Top 10 Ferraris (Modern era). Here is an except from the article:

The Top Ten Road Cars, Part II

In the second installment, our experts pick the ten landmark Ferraris of the last 36 years.

8. 550 Maranello
The 550 Maranello reintroduced a front-engine, V12-powered, two-seat GT to the Ferrari ranks some 23 years after Daytona production ended. Around 3,600 550s were built between 1996 and 2002, when it was replaced with an updated model, the 575M. Lynch, who ranks the 550 number one, calls it “the spiritual successor to the Daytona…but it’s faster, more refined, more docile and the interior is more Schedoni than Scaglietti.” Goodfellow adds, “The 550 demonstrated that it wasn’t necessary to sacrifice comfort and usability for performance.” Tjaarda concurs, noting, “Aerodynamics, mechanical perfection, interior comfort and safety were developed with one objective: to create the best car on the road.”

Several panelists describe the 550 as “elegant,” and a few comment that it’s a good value—550s can be found for $100,000. “It’s a lot of lovely, practical car for the money,” says Merritt.

The 575 is just starting its depreciation curve, once the 599 comes out values will really start to come down. The 360 still has some depreciation left. I see a 99 360 modena at $70k ish in another 2 years. The 456 is coming down at a far slower pace than the others and its near the bottom of its depreciation curve IMO. Therefore your all wrong as I think the 456 will hold its value the best over the next ten years. Ha! :)

I would beg to differ on this point, while early 456 GT's are almost fully depreciated (likewise for early 550's, later 456M GT's still have a long way to go before they bottom out. 575's will continue to drop but the bottom will be much higher than where the 456M will finally settle.

On the 599 GTB, so few are coming onto the market in the next 12 months, I don't think they will have much impact on 575 prices.

Boxer,

If you are talking final price I would agree. But if the poll question is aimed at which will hold its price relative to its current prices then I do think the % change on the 456 will be the least since it has nearly bottomed out and the 360 will probably have the greatest change.

Enzo250GTO, I don't think 550s and 456 GTs will side much more in price. The percentage change over the next 10 years on both should be fairly small. On the 575 and 456M GT, both still have a fair amount of depreciation left in them. A drop of 30-50% vs the current prices would not be unexpected. On the 360, I image these will continue to fall for a number of years. In 5 years I would expect the price gap between the F355 and 360 to be $5-10k.

I'll stick to the cars on the list.


History tells us that no 4 seat Ferrari has ever had good investment potential, to the point that after a few years even maintaining them needs to be a labor of love to justify. I see no reason to think that the lessons of history will change in this case. That counts the 456 out.

The 360 is a great car, but by Ferrari standards just to common. And history also tells us (I hate the term but lack a better one at the moment) that the entry level models do not do as well as the top of the line V12 roadburners. Look at the Daytona and the Dino. Again history votes against the 360 and so do I.

The 575. Last of a line. Much like the much loved 328 and 512TR or M. Not built in large numbers, has a great reputation for durability and reasonable maintenence costs. There is a space saved in the history books next to the Daytona for the 550/575 and one day it will take that space rightfully.
