    Ferrari overdoing it a bit

    I love te 458, but its a bit extreme in my opinion, they started with the 360 being on par with the 911 gt3, went to gt2 with the 430, now they are in the carrera gt/enzo  category

     

    I personaly would love to see a dino type, below 4l mid engined sports car, not a gt like the california but, a little lotus or  porsche 911 type car,   well actualy somthing like the 360  modena but i a new interpretation


    Re: Ferrari overdoing it a bit

    Too many " cheaper  " cars  today with test track numbers that equal or in some cases exceed the 430, such as GTR and ZR1.

    There are already " engineer lightness" cars such as Lotus and Radical that have that  2000 -2500 lb  market covered.

    Ferrari will probably  position their new mid-V8 in the higher  $200s base price to maintain exclusivity by price ( certainly not by numbers built over the entire run ,though ) .

     

    Funny to read all the self serving teeth gnashing on Ferrari boards about projected price of the new model, when AMG CL and S classes ( and the 997.2 GT2 ) are in the low $200K range and various sport  versions of Astons and Bentleys are $250,000-350,000 . Heck, most  German top range SUVs and  flagship sedans are now in the $130-150K range when optioned out .

    yup, prices in general are going through the roof.....the bubble that had resulted in the mess we are in is the kick starter for all this.

    Yeah, most higher- end US suburban shopping malls are littered with > $100K " everyday " cars today , that to most folks , even car enthusiasts are ,  look like $70K cars ( which is what they are worth the moment you drive a new one off the dealer lot !)

    Bentleys and such depreciate even harder and can be bought 1 yr old for price of new S Class, but the great masses see them as " billionaire's cars " and most professionals  won't be caught dead pulling up to their office in one lest they want all their clients to drop them. Image always cuts two ways.


    Re: Ferrari overdoing it a bit

    You guys still get it cheaper than in exp. Germany... and I don't think there is any "exchange rate reason" for that.

    Enjo it while you still can
