    I dont know of a GTS. Kyosho did the 308, 308QV, and a 328 - all GTB. Did you see it somewhere advertised? Exoticar has a red 1/43 308 GTS, but nothing in 1:18.

    I had heard/read a long time ago that they were going to release a GTS version, but considering release times (always delayed big-time), don't hold your breath...

    I think that is actually an Anson 328 GTS.

    That is an Anson 328 GTS. Custom wheels, spruced up a bit. No news on a 308QV GTS from any company.

    Hey guys,

    Click on Dana's link again below and then click on "308" on the side bar. If you click on 308 GTS there are two pics of what appears to be a Kyosho 308 GTS QV. Whether it is original or a converted GTB is a different story. It does have the a targa top behind the seats. Check it out. It looks great! :)

    I saw that, too. But I haven't seen anything from Kyosho or anyone else about releasing one. Based on the rest of his models (the customizing), I think it may be a custon job. But it looks great.

    I found a new,unwrapped Hotwheels 1:43 scale 308GTS,Red with Black interior,at a car show last year. Still looking for another so that I can paint the interior Tan to match my '81 308. Also got an all black 308 GTB,and a Silver one.

    I just got a 1:43 scale 1977 Euro spec 308GTS (red/tan) as a gift. I believe it's made by "Best Models" and can be found at exoticar.com. I think it sells around $30-$40. It's a very nice model although there are some minor flaws/inaccuracies which I can overlook. It's very nicely detailed. As a nice surprise, it DOES come with a removable targa roof which I almost didn't see as it's taped to the base!

    No, it's not as good as a 1:18 308QV GTS, but I'm happy with it. Of course my real goal is the 1:1 scale version!!

    LOL! Yes,I already have a 1:1 scale Ferrari car. It's funny that I'm looking for little ones now. I found some sort of "Mutant" 1:24 scale 288/308 car for $5.00 at one show. It is made by some company from Spain called Guitoy. It is supposed to be a GTO. But,It has a Targa top.(open,with no top to put on) And,it has the Red/with Black Boxer trim. The rear quarters have the 288 GTO "slots",but,the fenders are not wider. Basically,it looks like a 308 Targa,with Boxer trim,and GTO Fender slots. And,extra vents on the Rear deck lid. The front end just looks like a 308,also. But,it's still a nice looking little car,and I only paid $5.00 for it.

    I'm glad you guys like my site. :)

    Unfortunately, the 308 GTS QV is only a Photoshopped image. I used the targa section and window louvers of the Anson 328 and pasted it over the 308 to create the 308 GTS QV. I also blackend the vents above and between the headlights. I really do hope that Kyosho make this version of the 308!!!

    I haven't updated my site in awhile, I have several new cars I want to add.

    Eric,

    Wow. You had me fooled. That's pretty cool. I hope Kyosho releases a GTS version of the 328 so that I can have it customized to look like my car. :)
