Vintage R&T Road Test: 1967 Ferrari 275 GTS/4 NART – “The Most Satisfying Sports Car In The World”

I know that vintage Ferraris don’t get the stats here that old semi trucks do, but every once in a while, it’s good to glimpse into another world, where Ferraris where still mere mortals with attendant shortcomings. That made reviews of them more interesting than the endless gushings of someone trying to describe the experience of a new one, since they’ve all been absolutely perfect now for at least 20 years, or damn near close to that. Despite its few remaining imperfections, this 275 GTS was dubbed “The Most Satisfying Sports Car In The World”.

This is a rather unusual Ferrari too, as it was made specifically for its North American importer (“NART”),  who was adamant about having a roadster version of that superlative coupe, the 275 GTB/GTS. It’s the Ferrari version of the Porsche Speedster.
