The Ferrari 328 GTB and GTS was the successor to the Ferrari 308 GTB and GTS. While largely based on the 308 GTB and GTS respectively, small modifications were made to the body style and engine, including an increase in engine displacement to 3.2 L (3185 cc). 7,400 Ferrari 328s were produced by the time the model was replaced by the new 348 in 1989, bringing the total for the 308/328 generation to nearly 20,000. The 328 is considered by some Ferrari enthusiasts to be one of the most reliable Ferraris; unlike some models, most engine maintenance can be performed without lifting the engine from the vehicle.<ref>Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref>

The GTB referred to the Gran Turismo Berlinetta (coupé) body while the GTS was a Gran Turismo Spider (targa top). In 1985, the 328 retailed from $58,400-$62,500 ($115,300-$123,400 in 2008 dollars) in the United States. This price included a gas-guzzler tax.

Engine

The Ferrari 328 uses a 3.2 litre V8, 4 Valve per cylinder layout. It has 270hp and 231 lb ft of torque. Its top speed is 166mph and reaches 60mph in 5.5 seconds and 100 in 13.00.

Performance

For the 328 GTB

  • 0-60 mph: 5.5 seconds approx.
  • Top speed: 166 mph

For the 328 GTS

  • 0-60 mph: 5.9 Seconds
  • Top speed: 163 mph

GTS/GTB Turbo

From 1986 to 1989 Ferrari also produced a special home market 328 that could negate the tax concessions imposed on cars with a displacement of more than two-litres. Designated GTB Turbo and GTS Turbo, the most fundamental changes were focused around a new engine. Displacement was 1991 cc with a bore and stroke of 66.8 mm x 71 mm, output peaking with 254 bhp at 6500 rpm. Whereas 208 Turbo's had used KKK turbochargers, these new 328-based cars used an IHI unit running at 1.05 bar of boost.

Top speed was 157 mph and zero to sixty took less than six seconds. The only visual differences between these two-litre Turbo's and regular 328's were their NACA ducts positioned just in front of each rear wheelarch, redesigned engine covers (in order to accommodate the Behr intercooler) and a ventilated rear bumper.
