However, there are some Ferraris out there that deliver everything you would expect from one of the world's premier luxury performance brands without completely emptying your wallet.
One of the cheapest Ferrari models was once incredibly pricey
If the California isn't quite what you're looking for, the Ferrari 360 has the brand’s classic aesthetics and performance for a little less than $60,000. The 360 replaced the F355 and was the last Ferrari to be produced before 2000, according to Hot Cars.
At over 20 years old, it's a slightly newer model than some of the other cheap Ferrari models, and the styling still feels modern, possessing a certain timeless quality. For about the same price as a new family SUV, you can own a celebrated piece of luxury sports car history.

It has traditional Ferrari looks (especially when painted red), but it doesn't quite have the performance to back it up. With just 237 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque on the top-of-the-line GTS Quattrovalvole models, the 308 is less powerful than many of the other cheap Ferrari models.
But, if the look is more important than performance for you, the 308 is a sweet ride. You can be just as cool as 1980s Tom Selleck for a little over $41,000.
This Ferrari can be purchased for less than $20,000
The Ferrari Mondial was, according to Hot Cars, one of the worst Ferraris ever made, which explains the low price. It is a mid-engine vehicle, seats four, and is very obviously a Ferrari, too, which, at this cost, is probably enough for many people.
While it’s not as special as some of the other cheap Ferrari models, its incredible pricing definitely puts it within reach for those of us who would love to add “Ferrari owner” to our resumes.
