I'll never forget when I encountered a GT4 at a bottom-feeder used car lot in Decatur, IL back around 2001/2002. It was cheap...I think the sign said $10-$12k? It would have meant financing it, which I might have been able to do, but the whole situation just had "bad idea" written all over it. Now looking at their prices, if I'd just left it in the back yard I'd probably still have come out ok.

Am I the only one so far that digs the color combo?

No, I'd prefer blue over black or camel but it is a good different. When I bought my 400i there was a yellow GT4 for a little less money (8800 I think) but I could never get in touch with the guy so I bought the 400. I might have never sold a GT4

Keith Martin spoke highly of his. He's not known to talk it up just because it's 'his'.

While once considered bottom rung, these have aged better than just about anything from that period. Lots of room to grow in the market.

Unfortunate colors on this one. A re-die to black on the inside would help.

I have always thought this was one the best designs of the period. It would be the ferrari I would want, but I prefer them in blue.

And that back seat was a good idea... why, exactly?

The color combo will hurt value, no doubt. It would be much more desirable with black, tan, or even a white interior.

Sold for $40,000.

Insurance. It is now a passenger vehicle, not a sports coupe.

If you're worried about insurance rates, you shouldn't be buying a new Ferrari.
