I've always loved the Dino - W/"chairs and flares"

Ferrari dealership in Seattle is 5 blocks from my house - Drooled over a Dino 8 yrs ago - Beautiful perfect low mile example was $50K at the time. Wish I had the dough.

from Rennlist....

https://rennlist.com/forums/928-forum/1 ... rsche.html

As a huge fan of this show when I was a kid (and still am), I was doing some research on the now famous Ferrari 308 that came to be commonly known as the "Magnum Ferrari" among enthusiasts, and I came across an interesting bit of info.

As some of you may know, the Ferrari's used in the show had to be specially modified to accommodate Tom Selleck, who stands 6'4" tall. The padding was removed from the seats so he would sit lower in the car, and the seats were bolted as far away from the steering wheel as possible to maximize the leg room. Even with these modifications you can still see that Selleck's head is higher than the top of the front windshield frame. This is why you very rarely saw Magnum drive with the top up.


What you may not know is that the producers originally intended to use a Porsche 928 and asked Porsche to produce one with an extra large sunroof for aerial shots. Due to a strict policy by Porsche of not doing any special specifications at customer requests, the Ferrari 308 GTS was chosen instead and went on to become one of the most iconic cars of all time.

The timing of this show's initial run of course coincides with the internal turmoil of the Porsche management in regards to the phasing out the then 911 SC with the 928 that management was convinced would be their car of the future and that the 911 had come to the end of it's run.


The success of the series made a star of an otherwise average (for Ferrari) model and it became an icon.


It's intriguing to speculate what might have happened to both marques had Porsche accommodated the producers requests and supplied the specified 928.

Hmm, very interesting. Of course, "Risky Business" gave the 928 quite a bit of icon status.
