For $44,000, is this 308 better red than dead?

Despite a longstanding relationship with Pininfarina, Ferrari awarded the design of their first mid-engined V8 car to cross-town rival Bertone, a decision that Pininfarina then, and many since, have rued. The seller of today'sNice Price or Crack Pipe 308 GTB4 has tried to rectify the styling, but his price might also… » 8/22/11 8:00am 8/22/11 8:00am

For $46,900, is plastic fantastic?

Hyper-Maintained Ferrari 308 Boggles Minds With Perfection

This 1979 Ferrari 308 GTB is for sale on eBay. It's probably in better condition now than when Maranello birthed it. The obsessively maintained car has not only been meticulously maintained, it's been updated to provide better performance and reliability. » 10/14/09 6:30pm 10/14/09 6:30pm

Ferrari 308 GTB Rally Car Built By MAT

We've never heard of the Scandinavian speed shop Makela Auto Tuning, but we want to be their best friends.

PCH, Superpower Malaise Showdown: 1978 Ferrari 308 or 1980 Lotus Esprit?

While the 8-door '57 Chrysler limo almost beat out the stretched Ferrari 400i limo in our last Choose Your Eternity poll (and what an upset of reigning PCH Superpower, Italy, that would have been!), V12 power and Italian build quality seem to have triumphed over fins and rust. Today we need to see how Italy fares… » 4/02/08 5:15pm 4/02/08 5:15pm

PCH, Fireball Edition: Ferrari 308GT4 or Hudson Terraplane?

Is there any Hell Project that can compete against a car with chain drive, one carburetor per 200cc of engine displacement, and pretty much zilch in terms of parts availability? We can't say for sure, but we now know that more than 60% of Jalopnik readers surveyed believe that the Honda S800 out-hells the Lotus Europa. » 2/27/08 4:30pm 2/27/08 4:30pm

PCH, Cheap Ferrari Edition: 365 or 308GTS Plus Bonus Esprit?

Sometimes you need to ask yourself: How bad do I need a Ferrari? Actually, in Project Car Hell, the question goes: How bad can a Ferrari project be? Either way, the problem with Ferraris is that most of them are so expensive that you're spared the torment of actually owning one... that is, until now. We've managed to… » 2/07/08 5:00pm 2/07/08 5:00pm

Ferrari 308 Group B Michelotto

Something new everyday. Did any of you know that there were in fact four Group B Ferrari 308s? We had no idea, and we thought we knew the Killer Bs. Davey G sent me info on these cars as part of our continuing fight over the Mustache Ride. Here's the skinny: » 1/04/08 12:30pm 1/04/08 12:30pm

Peugeot to Build 308 RC-Z?

One of our favorite concepts from the Frankfurt Auto Show was the Peugeot 308 RC-Z. Based on the same platform that underpins the 308 and Citroen C4, we're big fans of the muscular shape. The concept is powered by the 218 hp 1.6 liter THC turbo mill out of the 207, which doesn't come close to matching the looks. Just… » 12/13/07 1:45pm 12/13/07 1:45pm

Ferrari 308 GTB Vs. Lamborghini Jalpa

We know, we know. The real duelists in the 1980s were the Countach and the Testarosa. We know. However, this is the Lost Jalpa Weekend, so we gotta go trolling through the second tier of 25-year-old Italian metal. You know, the mid-engined variety with traverse mounted V8s. And look what we done found! In the red… » 8/03/07 3:00pm 8/03/07 3:00pm

Peugeot 308 RC Z Concept Car

Peugeot's just released images and a release on their new 308 RC Z concept car they'll be introducing at this year's Frankfurt Auto Show. The very TT-esque 2+2 coupé is powered by a 1.6-liter THP, the same as the one in the 207 RC. The only difference is Peugeot says the engine under the bonnet of this concept car's… » 7/30/07 12:45pm 7/30/07 12:45pm


Thomas Magnum takes on a pair of armed yahoos in a Goat and winds up ending the chase in a most unfortunate manner. Neither the Fezza nor the Poncho are injured, but fans of Mk. 1 Golf/Rabbits may want to avert their eyes. » 7/16/07 10:00pm 7/16/07 10:00pm

Adam vs. Enzo — More 'Manta Manta'

Wherein two of our absolute favorite automobiles of the 1980s go head to head in a duel to the death. Also, we feel vaguely wrong for thinking the Mantafahrer's girlfriend is somehow ridiculously sexy, Jersey mall hair, cracking gum and all. We try to get out of the Central Valley; it pulls us back in! » 6/05/07 9:45pm 6/05/07 9:45pm

A N.A.R.T. Le Mans 308 GT4? Yes!

Holy wow. Extra wow. Wow with T ng t Sriacha sauce! Wow with an added dose of Old Man Chinetti. In 1974, this 308 GT4 was a factory entry from Modena at Le Mans in the Group 5 class. The next year, Luigi Chinetti brought it back, but yanked the whole North American Racing Team from the competition due to a political… » 12/20/06 8:55am 12/20/06 8:55am

Thomas Magnum Outwits Higgins, Steals Ferrari

In which, Magnum doesn't look at the dogs, works the lock, absconds with the 308 and calls Higgins a "yo-yo" all while sweet-talking a pair of European blondes. Plus, dig on the original theme song. We're growing our mustache back. » 9/19/06 11:00pm 9/19/06 11:00pm
