Often imitated, never duplicated. This is a mantra often associated with expensive luxury goods that lead to knock-off copies of the originals. The 1980s was a boon time for kit cars, one of the most copied being the Ferrari 308. After the Magnum P.I. series, everyone wanted a piece of the action with this Italian exotic, whether you were zooming down the main avenues of Manhattan or cruising along the Sunset Strip. This 308GTS for sale in California is a rare shade of Plum Metallic that adds a bit of subtlety to a car you would normally see in red or yellow, turning heads everywhere it goes.

Normally you can find a later model 328 for sale around the $60,000 to $80,000 range, but this 308 has edged itself into that territory. Whether low mileage and an uncommon color is enough to bring the big money remains to be seen. Of the 308s, early fiberglass bodied examples and the later fuel-injected models with four valve heads like this one are the most desirable. At most, however, a 308 like this should bring somewhere in high $40k to low $50k range.
