The 1979 Ferrari 308 GTS was the most stylish car of its era, and offered open-top opening thanks to its new Targa top. The chassis was specially reinforced for this model to make up for the lack of roof reinforcement. The 1979 Ferrari 308 GTS first showed up in 1977 at the Frankfurt Salon. Its looks were very similar to the 308 GTB apart from the removable Targa hardtop. Similar in looks, the 308 GTS was also similar in performance with the 308 GTB. Under the hood is a 3 liter V8 in a 90 degree configuration, powered by 255hp and Weber 40 DCNF carburetors. Models for the European market were fitted with dry sump lubrication, but ones for the Australia, Japan and USA had wet sump lubrication. Just like on the 308 GTB, the 1979 Ferrari 308 GTS luggage section was featured in the tail of the car just behind engine, which revealed a zip top luggage section at the rear. As an option you could also get a deep front spoiler, sport exhaust and high compression piston with high lift camshaft package.
