The Ferraristi who remained unconvinced that the Bertone-designed 308 GT4 2+2 was a true successor to the gorgeous Dino 246 had their prayers answered when the Ferrari 308 GTB was unveiled at the Paris Show in 1975. Ferrari returned to Pininfarina for the 308 GTB's styling, and this two-seat, mid-engine coupe sat on a chassis with a wheelbase that was eight inches shorter than the GT4 upon which it was based.
Production started with the GTB Berlinetta in 1976, with the 308 GTS Targa variant being introduced in 1977. In all, just over 12,000 308s were produced from 1976 to 1985.
These 3-liter, V-8 powered 1980s icons represent an excellent way to enter into Ferrari ownership due to their relative affordability and ease of ownership, and can be divided into three different series. The 308 was carbureted from 1976 to 1979, with 1976 and 1977 models being especially desirable due to their more aggressive cams and lack of emissions equipment. The 308 GTBi and GTSi variants from 1980 to 1982 saw Bosch fuel injection replace the previous generations' Weber carburetors, and finally in 1983 the 308GTB and 308 GTS Quattrovalvole (QV) introduced four-valve heads.
Ferrari 308s can be great fun to own and drive, provided you follow a preventative schedule of maintenance that includes the timing belts every three to five years. Today many owners choose to buy a set of the 16-inch wheels that came on the later QV cars in order to broaden their tire choices as well as improve cornering.

This 308 GTSi is a European version that was exported to USA in 1981 and came back to Europe to Switzerland in 1986. The last 11 years the car spent in the Czech Republic when the Czech owner made a new upholstery of the seats. The car has a regular service history. The car comes also with the original rims.
