Clyde notes about the 328 “And a better interior lay out “


Oh man - - - it has push buttons for electronic commands NOT toggle switches.

Hot rods have Toggle Switches.  Like the 308’s.  You know, like the antenna switch that goes south the third time you use it.

It’s all subjective 

But facts are facts

In my opinion the 328 is the best of the lot when it comes to 

308/328/348 series 

It had a bigger engine 

Better a/c

And a better interior lay out

Personally, I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the 348.   It was
the first of a new era/architecture of V8 cars, and predictably, had a lot
of problems.  That said (and unlike the 328), it was noticeably faster than
a 308, and it "held the line" during the time when Honda and the press were
making so much noise about the NSX.

Appearance wise, I still have the AutoWeek cover from the Frankfurt launch,
and the car looked great there.  I often liken it to looking like a "running
shoe" very streamlined and athletic.  If it were not for the fake front
grill, I would have no qualms about its body work.

Finally, I think all of the car's difficulties taught Ferrari some important
lessons; need for better quality, benefits of special models, benefits of
syder models, etc... that helped them be more successful in later years.

Regarding the car that sold for a high price, if it really did happen to be
one of the "better than the norm" examples that Clyde cites, then it would
make sense that it would go for a lot; as we have been discussing, such
examples are harder to find, and hence more valuable.

I've test-driven a couple of 348s, and will say, that I can imagine a
potential buyer liking the car a lot more than a 308 or 328.   Once bitten
by the bug, I don't think it is that hard to convince one's self that (based
on a PPI) a particular example has already had all the bugs shaken out of

Not claiming that the 348 is not fraught, just pointing out that I think it
has its good points as well...
