Drive like Tom Selleck in “Magnum”

Folding headlights up front, clear styling by Pininfarina, a detachable targa roof in the centre, twin taillights – but above and beyond all else: Immediately behind the rear seats, a V8 with a repertoire ranging from a stertorous rattle to a bark to a screaming roar. From these ingredients, Ferrari created the 308 GTS, one of the dream cars of the 1980s. Its popularity was further increased by the fact that the popular TV detective used this model for transport.

Early 308s, available only as closed GTB, had a fibreglass body, which was very time-consuming to produce. For that reason, it got replaced by a more conventional steel body in 1977. The Targa version appeared in the same year. From 1981, the GTS became a GTSi, a Bosch K-Jetronic was now responsible for mixture preparation instead of the carburetor system. Four-valve technology was introduced in 1982.
