In 1980, regulations concerning gas emissions got a lot stricter in the United States. The Ferrari 308 GTS, which wasn’t complying with the rules, has to switch the Weber carburetors to a Bosch fuel-injection system. This switch resulted in a decrease of the output by 40 hp, which Ferrari fans weren’t so pleased about at the time. Nowadays, fuel-injection models are appreciated for the smoothness of the engine and transmission. The Pininfarina convertible body is also one of the best characteristics of the GTS model, making it a wonderful Sunday-driver – even today. The V8 engine still delivers a decent amount of power and the well-balanced body handles wonderful in corners, for more enjoyment on windy roads.


1981 Ferrari 308 GTSi Seller’s Guide

Should you be thinking about selling your 1981 Ferrari 308 GTSi, the Alex Manos team would like to make a few recommendations. First of all, buying a classic is a quite emotional decision. Prospects will be well informed about the model and have access to a lot of online sources. What can make a real difference is the history of the model and the way it was cared for. If potential buyers know that you truly enjoyed your classic and were very thorough with its maintenance, they’re more likely to give you the price you’re asking for. Secondly, if you have a trusted Ferrari mechanic, you might want to bring the car to them before buyers request a pre-purchase inspection. Small fixes can sometimes be made ahead of time and will decrease the leverage for negotiation.
