All the Ginetta models since 1958 are listed here. A few of them were simple design exercises and so never existed as cars. A few did become actual cars, but for various reasons were not put into production.

The most prolific period was in the 1960s, with a huge output of different models. Some cars evolved into new model numbers while others went through evolution within the basic model. Some arrived almost before previous models were launched, while other took years of gestation before arriving on the scene.

The first table lists the cars chronologically by model number, the second table lists cars by decade in which they were built, while the third groups car by the model family.

Cars made by Dare are included in these lists because of the direct relationship with the Ginetta company.

Ginetta models by number

Ginetta numbered their cars chronologically for the most part, although this became blurred when they returned to an earlier model after a long break. The G4 series 4 is an example of this. There are also two model known as G20.

After the business became valid at the end of the 1950's, there was an explosion of work in the 1960s with the G4 series becoming immensely popular. The 1970s was characterised by the downturn in the economy around the time of the 3 day week, and Ginetta reacted by concentrating on their popular G15 and G21 models. With better times in the 1980 the company responded with some interesting ideas, principally a utility vehicle which they called the GRS Tora. Early in the 1990s the company was sold to new owners, who continued to manufacture the G32 and G33 models, and developed cars for the track. Later two of the founding brothers formed Dare, and started developing designs of their own. In 2006 Ginetta was sold to LNT, a motor racing group of companies based in South Yorkshire.

Following the development of cars made by Ginetta is fascinating, as one of their first models, the G4 was still the basis of the more recent G20 track cars. The hugely popular G15 model also evolved over time, finally ending in a VW engined car made for a dealer in the USA. For some time the company investigated the Ford Fiesta as a basis for a sports car, resulting in the G25. This was never release for sale, as further development and customer reaction was incorporated to produce the G32, some years later.
