The Ferrari 348 TS is a sports car that was produced by the Italian automaker Ferrari between 1989 and 1995. The TS stands for "Transversale Spider," which refers to the mid-engine, transverse layout of the car, as well as the removable targa-style roof panel.
The 348 TS was the successor to the Ferrari 328, and it represented a significant update in terms of both performance and styling. The car was designed by Pininfarina, one of the most respected Italian automotive design firms, and it featured a sleek, aerodynamic body with sharp lines and curves.
Under the hood, the 348 TS was powered by a 3.4-liter V8 engine that produced 300 horsepower and 238 lb-ft of torque. This engine was mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential, which helped to ensure that the car delivered smooth, consistent power to the rear wheels.
The Ferrari 348 TS was capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 5.6 seconds, and it had a top speed of 171 miles per hour. These performance figures were impressive for the time, and they made the 348 TS one of the fastest and most exciting sports cars on the market.
Inside the car, the 348 TS was outfitted with a variety of luxurious features and amenities, including leather upholstery, power windows, air conditioning, and a premium sound system. The car's cockpit was designed with the driver in mind, with a sporty, ergonomic layout that provided excellent visibility and easy access to all of the car's controls.
The 348's styling differed from previous models with straked side air intakes and rectangular taillights resembling the Testarossa, which nicknamed the 348 as Baby Testarossa. Only 4.228 of the 348 TS were produced.
Overall, the Ferrari 348 TS was a stunning sports car that offered outstanding performance, style, and luxury. While it may not have been as well-known as some of Ferrari's other models, such as the Testarossa or the F40, the 348 TS was still a highly desirable and sought-after car that remains a favorite among collectors and enthusiasts today.
