1987 Ferrari 328 GTS

The Ferrari 328 was introduced in 1988 and was the third of Ferrari's V8-engined road cars that had begun with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Originally wearing the badge 'Dino', the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 took over the lineage after the preceding Dino V6. It came with wedge-shaped styling by Bertone rather than the customary Pininfarina design studio. Performance was impressive from the amidships-mounted double-overhead-camshaft 3-litre V8. At the Paris Salon in 1975, a new two-seater car using a dry-sumped version of the same power unit made its debut. Named the 308 GTB, it had a shorter wheelbase and styling by Pininfarina.

In 1985, the 308 was superseded by the mechanically similar but larger engined 328 GTB. With four-valves per cylinder, a displacement size of 3,186cc, revised pistons, improved Marelli engine management system, and a higher compression ratio, horsepower rose to 270 bhp at 7,000 RPM. Top speed raised to nearly 160 mph and zero-to-sixty was accomplished in 5.5 seconds. On the exterior, Testarossa-style moulded bumpers were added, along with an unobtrusive roof spoiler, and a deeper rear valance.

The 1987 Ferrari 328, the successor to the 308 series, continued with very few changes. It had been introduced in 1985 and was available as a coupe or targa. Pricing began at $71,900 for the GTB coupe and rose to $77,900 for the GTS Targa. Power was provided from a dual-overhead cam V8 engine displacing 194.4 cubic-inches and offering 260 horsepower. It had a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system, disc brakes, and a five-speed manual gearbox.
