The Ferrari 308 GTS Targa and 308 GTB Berlinetta are V8 mid-engined, two seater sports cars produced by Ferrari from 1975 to 1985. In 1975, the 308 was replaced by the Dino 246 and upgraded to the Ferrari 328 in 1985. The 308 GTB/GTS and GT4 were mechanically similar, and also had similarities to the original Dino. Both 308s sit on the same tube platform, but the GT4 (2+2) has a longer wheelbase. The engine was a V8 with belt driven double overhead camshafts per cylinder bank. All models had a 5-speed manual transmission and a clutch-type differential lock. Suspension was fully independent, with coaxial coil springs and hydraulic dampers consisting of double wishbones and anti-roll bars on both axles; 4 wheel ventilated disc brakes were also fitted. The 308 body was designed by Pininfarina's Leonardo Fioravanti, responsible for some of Ferrari's most successful models to date, such as the Daytona, the Berlinetta Boxer and the Dino. The 308 used elements from these models as opposed to the angular GT4.
The Pininfarina style Ferrari 308 GTB was introduced at the 1975 Paris Motor Show. A notable aspect of the early 308 GTB was that the body was made entirely of glass fiber reinforced plastic. This lasted until June 1977, when the 308 switched to steel bodies. The 308 GTS Targa was introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1977. All GTS cars used a wet sump engine and had steel bodies. European GTB models kept dry-sump lubrication until 1981. 3,219 GTS and 2897 GTB cars were built between 1975 and 1980.
Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection was added to the 308 GTBi and GTSi in 1980. At the 1982 Paris Motor Show, Ferrari introduced the 308 Quattrovalvole. The Ferrari 288 GTO (1984) is considered the first Ferrari supercar. The 288 closely resembled the styling of the European 1983 Ferrari 308 GTB QV. In 1985 Ferrari introduced the Ferrari 328. Between 1982 and 1985 Ferrari produced a total of 3042 GTS Ferraris and only 748 GTB Ferraris.
