The 308 GTS joined the Ferrari model range at the 1977 Frankfurt Salon. Visually it was very similar to its 308 GTB berlinetta stable mate, apart from the black-finished, removable, glass-fibre roof panel, and the satin-black-finished, hinged, opening louvre panels over the rear quarter windows.

The 308 GTS joined the Ferrari model range at the 1977 Frankfurt Salon. Visually it was very similar to its 308 GTB berlinetta stable mate, apart from the black-finished, removable, glass-fibre roof panel, and the satin-black-finished, hinged, opening louvre panels over the rear quarter windows.

The "S" in the model title stands for "Spider", although as with the Dino 246 GTS, the spider title was a degree of artistic license, as the model’s roof was in fact a targa top, with a roof panel that could be stowed behind the seats for open-air motoring.

Production ran from 1977 to 1980 during which time 3219 examples were produced, around 50% more than the concurrent 308 GTB model. Indeed, the arrival of the GTS triggered a steady decline in demand for GTB's, most customers understandingly opting for the open-topped version.
