HISTORY OF THE FERRARI 308
Introduced at the Paris Motor Show as the replacement for the Dino 246 in 1975, the 308 has a solid place in Ferrari history. Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti, who had previously penned the 365 Daytona for Pininfarina, the 308 quickly won over many enthusiasts for both its looks and performance. Ferrari soon saw the need for an open version and the 308 GTS entered production in 1977 and featured a removable Targa top, allowing for open air motoring. A desirable model with excellent looks and performance, only 3,219 308 GTS’ left the Maranello factory until 1980. As a whole, the 308 GTS is often associated with the TV show Magnum, P.I. as the model played a starring role in the series, capturing the hearts of many as it chased down criminals on the islands of Hawaii with actor Tom Selleck behind the wheel. The 308's iconic wedge shape was a staple of the time and is one of the most recognized today; ensuring the 308 GTS collectability and desirability for years to come.
