2005 Maserati Quattroporte - Entourage
Eric held onto his 1988 Honda Prelude for a long time before finally jumping on the band wagon and riding the Hollywood coattails. We don't think there was a more glamorous choice than this 2005 Maserati Quattroporte.

8. The Batmobile - Batman

The Batmobile - Batman
In 1955, the Lincoln Futura, a concept car was built by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company. Built entirely by hand in Turin, Italy, it cost $250,000 but like many concept cars it was never put into production. In the mid 1960's, George Barris acquired the car for $1 directly from Ford. Fast forward to August 1965, the Batman TV show producers approached George to have him build a new Batmobile but they needed it ready in three weeks! The Futura was the perfect answer and became one of the most iconic TV cars of all time.

9. Ferrari 308 GTS - Magnum P.I.

Ferrari 308 GTS - Magnum P.I.
The epic Ferrari wasn't actually Magnum's but was owned by Robin Masters along with the rest of the estate. Not only did Thomas Magnum get to live on a beautiful estate on Hawaii, he also got unlimited access to this gorgeous red Ferrari 308 GTS. Talk about living the dream!

10. Ferrari Daytona Spider - Miami Vice

Ferrari Daytona Spider - Miami Vice
Detective Sonny Crockett drove two Ferraris while working as an undercover drug dealer. This was the first, seen on Miami Vice seasons 1 and 2. A 1972 Ferrari Daytona Spyder 365 GTS/4. It's a replica because Ferrari North America turned down the request by the show for authentic Ferraris. This particular vehicle was blown up by a Stinger missile at the beginning of season 3.

11. Ferrari Testarossa - Miami Vice

Ferrari Testarossa - Miami Vice
Miami Vice makes the list a second time with Crockett's white Testarossa. After Ferrari filed a lawsuit demanding that the halt of production and sale of Ferrari replicas, the producers of the show were happy to avoid a legal hassle and accepted Ferrari's offer of two free 1986 Testarossas. The cars given by Ferrari were actually black but painted white. Some say it’s because the producers felt the car looked more stunning in white while filming night scenes.

12. Porsche Speedster - Beverly Hills, 90210

Porsche Speedster - Beverly Hills, 90210
The year of the car is in question as in one episode Dylan says it’s a 1961 Porsche 356 Speedster and in a different episode it’s referenced as a 1957. Either way, this Porsche replica is gorgeous and is a perfect compliment to Dylan McKay's James Dean persona.
