Ferrari 308 GTS – NW 17th Ave & Glisan, Portland

Ferrari 308 GTS - Portland

It’s not the rarest, fastest or prettiest prancing horse to ever come out of Maranello but it might just be the most easily recognizable thanks to an unusually high production volume (Ferrari built 12,000 308 models in all) and one dashing private investigator named Thomas Magnum. The Pininfarina-styled mid-engine 308 was Ferrari’s “entry level” V8 offering from ’75-’85 while the GTS (S for Spyder) variant shown here offered up the ability to let the sunshine by way of a targa-style removable center roof section. To accommodate the differing roof structure, Ferrari used louvered panels in place of the rear quarter windows found on the standard 308 GTB (B for Berlinetta). It’s still a pretty hot car and this Portland-based example looks damn good for its age. We dig the black wheels – they add stealthiness to an already black on black motif.

Thanks for the great pictures Emir
