Ferrari has certainly perfected the art of creating elegant, high-performance, rare, and exotic vehicles with the capacity to carry two individuals plus their luggage. The cars, with their plethora of torque from their V-12 engines, were easily capable of high-speed cruising on the German autobahns. The Ferrari 365 GTS models wore similar styling to the 330 GTS it replaced. Mechanically, they were much improved and they were the most technologically advanced open Ferrari vehicle to-date.

The Ferrari 365 GTS came equipped with a 4.4-liter V-12 engine that was first seen in the limited-production Ferrari 365 California. The V-12 produced 320 horsepower, with the help of single overhead-camshaft per bank and triple Weber carburetor setup. The engine output of the 365 GTS was a 20-BHP increase over the 330 GTS. The 365 GTS was also given a five-speed manual and an independent rear suspension with Lobro halfshafts of the 365 GTB/4 Daytona.

Production of the Ferrari 365 GTS was short, produced only in 1969. They had the same mechanical and cosmetic components as the 365 GTC, but with a convertible top. In total, just 20 examples of the 365 GTS were built.

Chassis number 12473 was completed in May of 1969. It is the 17th example of 20 Ferrari 365 GTSes produced. It is a European model that left the factory in Bleu Ribot (2.443.631) over a Beige leather interior (VM 3218) and was destined for Germany. The car was delivered new through German Ferrari importer Auto-Bekcer in Dusseldorf in June 1969 to its first private owner, Mr. Thomas Teves. Mr. Teves retained the car for his personal use at this residence in Bad Homburg, Germany. The car was owned by Mr. Teves for six years before being sold to the Etienne Aigner Leather Manufacturing Company in Munich in 1975, possibly for use by Etienne Aigner himself. It was later repainted in yellow and then sold by Aigner to Peter Lorenz, of Koblenz, Germany, in 1980. Mr. Lorenz kept the car for four years and had it restored in Ferrari red over a black interior. In 1984, it was sold to Josef Brunlehner, and then passed to collector Erich Traber, of Toffen, Switzerland. The car remained in Traber's care for four years before it was acquired by Fritz Kroymans of Hilversum, Netherlands, in 1989. After twenty years in Mr. Kroyman's care, the car was sold to its current United States-based collector.

The car has been treated to a recent restoration which included having the engine and gearbox fully stripped and rebuilt, using new parts where necessary. The car is currently finished in Grigio Fumo paint with Cuoio upholstery. After the work was completed, the car was shown twice at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering, once in 2012 and again in 2013.
