Based on the 308 model that it was replacing, the 328 GTS differed with its larger 3.2-liter engine and subtle appearance updates. Its 270-hp mid-mounted V8 engine with 5-speed manual transmission provided the power and thrills worthy of any sports car bearing the Ferrari name. The sleek Pininfarina lines made for a car as visually exciting as it was to drive. For all of that and more, it has gained allegiance from many Ferrari fans as being one of the most user-friendly models the company has offered. It continues to fascinate to this day.

This red with tan leather example is described as being original. It has the popular removable targa top, factory alloy wheels, air conditioning, Sanyo AM/FM radio, power windows, power four-wheel disc brakes, hidden headlights, power steering and embroidered Ferrari floor mats. The paint is reported as being in good condition. It has a clean engine bay and nicely preserved leather interior. The car is smooth-running and has good driving characteristics.
