1986 brought with it a significant update, as the 308 models grew into the 328 GTB and 328 GTS as the V8's displacement grew to 3.2 liters. "The 308's double-overhead-cam, four-valve, 2927cc V8 has been bored and stroked to increase its displacement to 3186cc," reported Car and Driver in its first test of the 328 GTS. "In addition, the compression ratio has been bumped up from 8.6 to 9.2:1, intake valve lift has been increased and the Digiplex ignition system has been replaced by a slightly more refined Microplex system. Other improvements to the engine include redesigned intake runners, larger oil coolers and lines, a different throttle body, slightly redesigned combustion chambers and different spark plugs. As a result of these changes, the power output jumps from 230 hp at 6800 rpm to 260 at 7000. Torque is also increased from 190 lb-ft at 5500 rpm to 213 at the same engine speeds....The new 328 scoots to 60 in 5.6 seconds and trips the quarter-mile clock in 14.2 seconds at 97 mph. Together with new, more aerodynamic body panels, the power increase yields a top speed of 153 mph, a solid 9-mph improvement."
The engine wasn't the only change to the 328s, however. A rack and pinion steering system swiped from the 288 GTO was fitted and the suspension was revised. Externally, the front end was redone with a smoother, blunter bumper and grille and new 16-inch wheels were fitted with appropriate tires.
As good as the 328 was, it was still using the same basic chassis introduced with the first 308 — and that in turn was derived from the even older original Dino.
The 328 lived up until 1987. This car has original manuals and documents it came with. This is an all original investment quality car! Get your hands on it now before local buyers get at it! Local callers already!
