Why The Ferrari 400i Is Collectable

Why The Ferrari 400i Is Collectable

By Ronald Ahrens / 28 Jul 2014 / 16 Comments Read More

The Collector is a weekly series produced in association with Gear Patrol.
The 400i shows the usual hopeful aspects of the period: pop-up headlamps, overly obvious five-spoke wheels, and a sleek, large-diameter, pre-airbag steering wheel. This Ferrari strove for elegance and largely achieved it. And despite the electronic fuel injection leading to a nine-percent drop to 310 horsepower (but a more favorable emissions test), the 400i went down the road with authority, no matter which transmission the 4.8-liter twelve was mated to.

This week we move up the range to six cylinder engines. By now, I'm sure the Porsche-philes have already skipped ahead to stuff the ballot box, but in case you're still reading: we're aware of the flat-six. Yes, it's a great engine. Perhaps, just to make this more interesting, you could offer something other than your choice for the best variation of the 901. You're already typing 'Porsche 901...' aren't you?

This year was special to Porsche because they finally returned to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Obviously, it will take some time for Porsche to recover their form after such a long absence. Nevertheless, a special exhibition called ’24 Hours for Eternity’, which pays homage to the famous race and displays Porsche’s racing heritage to public, is mind-blowing.
