Succeeding the Ferrari 308 GTS, the 328 was fitted with the same V8 engine as the one used in the QV (quattrovalvole) variant, with an increased capacity of 3,185 cc. The Bosch fuel injection system was retained but now fitted with a Marelli electronic ignition system, which helped produced an output of 270 hp. As for the Ferrari 308, the engine of the 328 GTS was mounted in unit with the all-synchromesh, five-speed manual transmission assembly, which was located at the back and below the engine sump. Design-wise, the 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS resembles its predecessor, with a softer wedge profile and a reworked nose featuring a rounder shape. Inside, the car also benefitted from a refreshed design, with new seat panel upholstery and stitching, redesigned door panels and pulls, as well as many luxurious details. As 1989 was the last year of production for the Ferrari 328 GTS, this model is the ultimate development for the series, featuring the most advanced mechanical and technical features of its generation.
In the last 5 years of production, the number of GTS made outnumbered the GTB coupe almost five to one, which shows how popular the 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS was. Interestingly, the first models of the series were numbered in the Ferrari odd number road car chassis sequence, whereas examples post chassis number 75 000 were numbered in the continuous number sequence. If the model you’re looking at features ABS option -which was made available since the middle of 1988, it’s also interesting to know that it necessitated a rework of the suspension and the road wheel design. The original flat spoke wheels – also known as star wheels – became a convex design whether or not the car was fitted with ABS.
