In 1975 at the Paris Auto Salon Ferrari introduced their Pininfarina designed 308 GTB. It featured a steel tube chassis and improved suspension and handling over the prior 246 Dino. The Ferrari 328 was built atop the same chassis and body as the 308 but was given louvers in the front hood, bumpers, and a roof spoiler. Mounted mid-ship was a 3.3-liter all alloy double overhead cam transverse mounted V8 that was rated at 270 bhp. The five-speed manual transaxle allowed the driver to send this power to the rear wheels.

The Pininfarina designed Ferrari 308 was angular and sharp, modern, and forward thinking. It was an instant hit and would come to define sports cars of the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Later, the Ferrari engineers were able to refine the design and mechanicals without losing the flair that defined the 308. The result of their work was the 328 which was produced at the same time as the Testarossa and 288 GTO.
The 328 featured much of its design styling from the 308 with several subtle differences between each, including molded bumpers, a slightly smaller front grille, and a roof spoiler. Pininfarina's designers smoothed out the design of the body's shape to make it appear slightly less agressive overall. Inside where more supportive seats and refined ergonomics with improved quality enhancing the car's driving experience. The engine displacement was raised to 3,186cc through increasing the bore and stroke, which helped to boost horsepower to 270 BHP. The 328 had a top speed of 160 MPH and could go from zero-to-sixty in just 5.5 seconds.
This 1986 Ferrari 328 GTS is finished in Azzuro Blue and was purchased new by James Khougaz from Hollywood Sports Cars in Hollywood, California. Mr. Khougaz used the car for several years before it was put into a climate-controlled garage where it would sit for nine years before his passing.
The car was purchased from Khougaz's estate and brought back to working order with a complete service.By Daniel Vaughan | Jan 2014
When the Type 308 was given a larger engine, its name was changed to the Ferrari 328. The 3185cc V8, also used in the modified Mondial, produced 260 horsepower and 213 lbs.-ft of torque. The engine used a Bosch K Jetronic fuel injection system and Marelli electronic ignition. Along with a larger engine, the wheelbase grew slightly to 92.5 inches. The bumpers were integrated into the underfairing and were now body-colored. The integrated appearance also continued to the tailpipes and the rear fog lamps.
The 328 came as the 328 GTB Coupe and the 328 GTS Targa Coupe.By Daniel Vaughan | Oct 2013

The Ferrari 328 took much of its design cues from the 308, with subtle differences from its predecessor, including body-color bumpers, a slightly smaller front grille, and a roof spoiler. The body was smoothed out making it slightly less aggressive and more sophisticated. Inside, the designers gave the seats refined ergonomics and improved the quality which made the car's driving experience more intuitive. The engine capacity rose to 3185 cubic-centimeters by increasing the bore and stroke and boosting horsepower to 270 HP. The 328 GTS had a top speed of 163 mph and could race from zero-to-sixty in just 5.9 seconds.
