About This Model

Ferrari 308/328/348 Series

The Ferrari 308 GT4 2+2 first saw the light of day at the Paris Motor Show of 1973. With very unusual Bertone styling, it was met with less than rave reviews. Angular and aggressive like some Bertone-designed Lancia and Lamborghini automobiles, it failed to please most critics. Originally branded as a Dino, it gained full Ferrari status in 1976. The 308 series was.

Ferrari 308/328/348 Series

The Ferrari 308 GT4 2+2 first saw the light of day at the Paris Motor Show of 1973. With very unusual Bertone styling, it was met with less than rave reviews. Angular and aggressive like some Bertone-designed Lancia and Lamborghini automobiles, it failed to please most critics. Originally branded as a Dino, it gained full Ferrari status in 1976. The 308 series was rescued by the introduction of the 308 GTB coupe in 1975 and GTS targa in 1977. With bodies styled by Pininfarina, they were much better received than the earlier Bertone versions.

All 308 variants were built on a steel-tube frame with fully independent, double-wishbone suspension. All were of classic Ferrari mid-engine design, with dual-overhead cam V-8 engines of 3-litre displacement. Four Weber carburetors provided the air/fuel mix. The powerplants delivered 255 horsepower in European trim but only 240 when tuned to meet U.S. emission requirements Horsepower numbers took a hit in 1980 when fuel injection replaced the Webers. To reflect the change in engine specs, the model names were revised to 308 GTBi and GTSi. In 1982 a Quattravole version premiered with four-valve-per-cylinder combustion chambers. This change netted an extra 20 horsepower, bringing the power number back to approximately where it started. A sprint from standstill to sixty took about seven seconds in the GTSi Quattravole.

Ferrari 328

The Ferrari 308 was the brand#39;s most successful automobile in terms of sheer numbers sold, with over 12,000 produced. Today, fans of the brand value the cars, in part because they are relatively affordable, with prices in the neighborhood of $30,000.

In 1985, the 328 succeeded the 308 with both GTB and GTS models. The bodies Berlinetta coupe and Spider targa were similar to those of the 308. The powerplant displacement was increased to 3.2-litres, and the four-valve heads were standard on all models. Output was 270 horsepower, and the zero-to-60 time improved proportionately, with the GTB clocking around 5.5 seconds in most tests and the GTS taking about six seconds to reach that mark. Top speed was up as well, with 160 mph in reach for both cars.

Although the 348 replaced the 328 in 1989, the two cars had little in common. While the midship V-8 was mounted transversely in the 328, it was mounted longitudinally in the 348TB and TS. The oil cooler and radiator were located in the cars flanks, as they were on the Testarossa, and like that car, the 348 featured cheese grater cooling vents in the doors and rocker panels. The 348#39;s dual-overhead-cam, 32-valve V-8 engine displaced 3.4-litres and delivered approximately 300 horsepower.

For 1993, the styling was revised with blacked-out body panels yielding to body-color pieces, and the engine got a horsepower bump to 312 in U.S. tune. Improved suspension geometry yielded better handling, and a true convertible Spider was added to the lineup. Model names were revised as well, as the cars got their G back, with GTB, GTS and Spider designations available.
