Initially there were no plans to produce a targa roof variant on the 208 Turbo, but due to demand from clients the 208 GTS Turbo became available in 1983. As with the fixed roof version, the changes to the Pininfarina designed body relative to the 208 GTS were very small, there was a deep front spoiler with a row of five horizontal cooling slots just below the radiator grille and the front lid featured a row of satin black finished louvres to increase airflow through the radiator, due to the higher temperatures created by the turbocharging of the engine.
A pair of electrically adjustable door mirrors was fitted as standard, there was a NACA duct on the lower body sides just in front of each rear wheel arch, and a spoiler was fitted to the rear of the roof between the buttresses that ran into the rear wings. The tail of the car featured a badge proclaiming “Turbo” and the twin paired exhaust pipes were within shrouds. Pirelli P 7 tyres on 16” rims were available as an option to the standard metric Michelin TRX tyres.
