Both cars came from an era when traditional design features mattered.
Porsche showed the way in the great 'mid-range' battle by introducing a 3.2 litre engine first, but Ferrari soon uprated its 3.0 litre car to 3.2 litres.
The layout of the two cars was radically different ...
The Carrera is slightly longer, considerably higher but lighter than the 328.
Comparing the Carrera's 231bhp flat 6 with the 328's 270bhp V8 will not tell the whole story.
Porsche produced over 75,000 Carreras whereas Ferrari produced under 2,000 328s.
