I think I need a new project to focus my attention.   These cars keep surfacing and I cant help but think it would be a fun entry level Ferrari to restore and drive.    I  have heard they handle amazingly well.    Its been compared to the Lancia Stratos and the Lamborghini Uracco.   The Ferrari 308 GT4 were mid engined V8 2+2 cars built by Ferrari.   They were built from 1973 to 1980 and initially badged as a Dino until May 1976.   The GT4 had a production run of a total of 2,826  308GT4 cars and 840 of the smaller engine 208 cars.

The engine had an aluminium alloyblock and heads, 16-valves and dual overhead camshafts driven by toothed belts; it produced 255 hp (190 kW) in the European version and 240 hp (179 kW) in the American. The induction system used four Weber 40 DCNF carburetors.

What do you think of these cars?

SOME HISTORY:
The GT4 was a groundbreaking model for Ferrari by being the first production Ferrari to feature the mid-engined V8 layout that would become the bulk of Ferrari’s business in the succeeding decades, and was the first production Ferrari with Bertone. From the cockpit the driver sees only the road. It has perfect 360 degree visibility, no blind spots, upright and comfortable seating position, a real trunk, a back seat for soft luggage, and very easy engine access. Enzo Ferrari himself took a major role in its design, even having a mock-up made where he could sit in the car to test different steering, pedals and cockpit seating positioning. The chassis was a tubular space frame based on the Dino 246, but was stretched for a 2,926.90 mm (115.2 in) wheelbase to make room for the second row of seats. The suspension was fully independent, with double wishbones, anti-roll bars, coaxial telescopic shock absorbers and coil springs on both axles. Niki Lauda helped set up the chassis.
The 3.0 L (2927 cc) V8 was mounted transversely integrally joined with the 5-speed transaxle gearbox. The engine had an aluminium alloy block and heads, 16-valves and dual overhead camshafts driven by toothed belts; it produced 255 hp (190 kW) in the European version and 240 hp (179 kW) in the American. The induction system used four Weber 40 DCNF carburetors.
