CTS: 1988 Ferrari 328 GTS

There’s something about this shape Ferrari I can’t quite let go. It seems that every year I get older I like this shape more and more, just like the 288GTO, and the 308GTS/GTO Pininfarina hit the nail on the head, it was a great period for design at Ferrari. I’ve always been consumed by this fabulous icon and love its superb retro styling that still doesn’t seem to be out of place on the road today. Whether you’ve seen one on the road or you remember it from Beverly Hills Cop II, its a Ferrari people always love. I know I’ve said it before but I think it’s hard for men to pull off the convertible, maybe that’s why I’d always longed for a targa. Tom Selleck looked cool in a Ferrari targa top, maybe I could too – I’d certainly be prepared to give it a go.
