The 308 was first made famous by the television series Magnum, P.I. Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) drove the car around Oahu for eight seasons while on his investigations, from 1980 to 1989. Several 308 GTS cars were used, a new one for each season, most being auctioned off after filming. The first was a 1979 model with chassis number 28251.
The Cannonball Run
In the Cannonball Run movie, a former open-wheel icon (and Scotch-swilling) Jamie Blake (Dean Martin) and his (gambling-obsessed) teammate Morris Fenderbaum (Sammy Davis, Jr.), dressed as Catholic priests, drive a red 1979 Ferrari 308 GTS.
The 1984 Transformers animated series also featured a Ferrari 308 GTB as the alt mode for the Decepticon Wildrider, one of the Stunticons.
In the games Asphalt Overdrive, Asphalt Nitro, and Asphalt 8: Airborne, the Ferrari 308 GTS is featured as one of the race cars available.
