1985 Ferrari 328 GTS

The Ferrari 328 was designed by Pininfarina and produced from 1985 through 1990, during which 6068 examples were produced. The 328 followed the Ferrari 308 but featured a transversely mounted V8 with an enlarged bore and stroke. The DOHC engine with Bosch K-Jetronic Fuel injection was capable of producing 270 horsepower. Power was transferred to the rear wheels through the use of a five-speed manual transaxle. The name '328' was attributed to its 3.2 liter eight-cylinder engine. The GTB and GTS represented Berlinetta and Spyder body-styles respectively. The GTS, known as the spyder or targa, had a removable roof panel and proved to be extremely popular, outselling the Berlinetta bodystyle by almost four-to-one.

In 1989 the engine was enlarged to 3.4 liters and the Ferrari 348 was born. Instead of the transversely mounting the powerplant transversely, the engine was placed longitudinally behind the driver.
