The Ferrari 308 was produced from 1975 to 1985, replacing the Ferrari Dino 246 and followed by the Ferrari 328 in 1985. A Ferrari 308 GTS version was introduced in 1977 with a targa top. The Ferrari 308 GTB (B for Berlinetta) and GTS (S for Spyder) were 2-seater, mid-engine sports cars designed by Fioravanti at Pininfarina, who also worked on the famous Daytona, Dino and Berlinetta Boxer. Built by Carrozzeria Scaglietti, the first models were made with glass-reinforced plastic bodywork, making the car extra light with a weight of 2,315 lb. In June 1977, the fabrication switched to steel, which made the car heavier by an additional weight of 331 lb. The Ferrari 308 GTS models have conventional wet-sump engine whereas the GTB models have dry sump lubrication engine until 1981 in all European models. Multiple variants for the Ferrari 308 models came along such as the GTBi/GTSi and the latter quattrovalvole. In 1980, a Bosch fuel injection system was added to the 308 GTBi & GTSi with reduced power to 214 hp but decreased the emission rate. After two years of engineer work, the Quattrovalvole version restored the performance to 240 hp thanks to 4-valves per cylinders.
