    Re: tough question

    yes I am because I like to get different views from both Porsche and ferrari owners and just general sport car admirers

    Re: tough question

    wouldn't take me a millisecond, money no object, CGT.

    Re: tough question

    this question is not opinion; unless you for some reason wanted to spend 200K+ but could only have one car, the carrera GT hands down; better looking, better performance, limited numbers, potential collector status later...the car is a GEM.

    Re: tough question

    well, its a tricky one. surely the cgt is in a different league when it comes to perceived value and exclusivity.
    a good friend of mine has just taken delivery of his f430 two weeks ago. driveability and performance are mind numbing. however, craftmanship and quality control are certainly on a par with fiat.

    on a personal note, i feel that ferraris are way too flashy. the right tool for poseurs. the attract too much attention.

    porsches are much more subtle (some say boring) which i prefer as they deliver in the right departments and dont have that screaming 'i am here' attitude.

    one big letdown on the cgt is that its manual. should definitely have had dsg.

    its a strange comparison, f430 and cgt. they play in different leagues. i assume that somebody seriously considering a cgt would already have one or two fcars in his garage......

    Very, very accurate words....real class is not "flashy"....

    Re: tough question

    One way to look at the difference between Porsche and Ferrari is this. In ten years time I know I would be able to purchase factory repair parts for the CGT. As for Ferrari, I would definitely be skeptical.

    Re: tough question

    I think your doubt should be between the Carrera GT and another car, not the 430, because the differences between them are not just the higher image that the GT is having over the 430 but also the huge difference in price, power, and perceived image..... if you don't have money enough for a GT get the Ferrari but if money it is no object... I think it is obvious that the CAR is the Carrera. Now if you make the question again as Carrera GT against Enzo or Pagani Zonda or McLaren SLR, or a Koenigsseg.... that it will be something to talk about.....

    Re: tough question

    How can someone could hesitate
    CGT hands down

    Re: tough question

    The 430 is just another Ferrari. the Carrera GT is something special - they are not on the same level. If you the mean, than CGT all the way!

    Are you serious? That seems like comparing apples vs. oranges. I mean the F430 is like a "mass produced GM car" compared to the CGT.
