A long time ago I owned a 1977 308 GTB but sold it to finance other requirements.

Now I want to get back to Ferrari ownership and looking at a 85/86 Testarossa, 348, or Mondial t Cabriolet. The selling prices in general seem to be close from what I am seeing so purchase price is not the driving factor in making a selection. Since I like all 3 models for different reasons anyone of these will do fine. So, my determination of which one to buy may come down to on-going maintenance costs.

Can any of you let me know which one of these models is the most economical to own regarding maintenance cost if looking at an average of 5 year span?

Thank you everyone in advance.

The 12 cyl will be more expensive to service. If you go to the dealer for majors expect $6K for the V8's and $10K for the 12's.

If you do your own work, you will be into each car for less than $2K in parts.

If you can't do your own work, find a good independent. The work will be better than the dealer and cost much less.
