Introduced in 1993 at the Frankfurt Salon as a second series
Ferrari 348 GTB and GTS replaced the then 4 years old TB and TS.
These second series took over some improvements already seen on
the Spider and Serie Speciale. Some of the changes were color coded
skirts and a chromed Cavallino Rampante between the rear lights instead of the black ones which the first models had. Thanks to an improved electronic management system (Motronic 2.7) the engine gained about 20 bhp more than the aging 348 TB/TS.
This model were never meant for the North American marked, and were
only available in Europe and Japan. It also had the "H" version engine,
with longer intake manifoils and some fuel delivery modifications, and this engine never went into North American cars.
Production went on for about a year and with a total production of
440 cars, 222 GTB's, 218 GTS the production ended in spring 1994,
and both GTB and GTS were replaced by the F355.
