    The FF would have been a great...Porsche, no kidding. It is a very fascinating car, fast, safe, not a beauty queen but somehow different and the exhaust/engine sound is typical Ferrari. I'm not sure how many FF Ferrari will sell, the price tag is quite steep but if I had the money to own many different cars, I think that the FF would be among them. The one and only "family" Ferrari.

    This is precisely the point. Most FF owners will almost certainly have another Ferrari/ other "supercar" in the garage. Furthermore, for those of us with children it is both practical and exciting.

    So... who is that Dan Neil anyway? indecision

     

    None of the current Ferraris can be considered beautiful in the same way as previous generations, especially the ones from certain decades.

    This is your personal judgement. I find the 458 more than stunning and the 599 is already a classic!

    I think the FF is kinda cool still. I am glad they jumped on it and decided to built it.

    It's so much better than an SUV from Ferrari for example..

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Dan Neil changes his mind regarding the FF

    Saw this car other day. Brilliant! The car has that morbid presence, similarly what Panamera achieves and that makes these cars intelligently beautiful, although at first glance ugly...


    Re: Dan Neil changes his mind regarding the FF

    "Morbid presence"? Hmmm, not so sure I want my car to invoke thoughts or images of a hearse.indecision

    The FF was never really good looking. It was an elongated M Coupe, which with its drawn out proportions, looked odd.

    What I did find cool was the AWD and the electric drive motors in the front axles. That much I did find interesting and innovative. Imagine cars in the future coming out of the camp where the the torque split is not only FW/RW but also L/R.


    Re: Dan Neil changes his mind regarding the FF

    tryed my friends ff yesterday as passenger....a hell of a car!!!! not goodlooking in the classic way...but with huge presence!  amazing performance for such a car....

    impressed a lot !  to expensive for todays situation, but for those who have money a great daily ride!

    Whoops! I misremember. The car uses a secondary 2-speed transmission in front of the engine.

    I know the next 612 replacement was experimenting with electrical drive motor for the front wheels.
