    thanks for posting these, farina

    really an impressive vehicle, probably has a huge street presence.

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    do these look like they are computer generated from the first 3

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    I think it looks great. Thanks for posting.

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    It looks more like an artist's impression.... doesn't look like a photo or a CG image

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    Thanks

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    They seem to look sexier then the other "official" pics.

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    Yes, great car indeed! The side view looks very lean and mean. Not at all girthy like the 612. Awesome. Thanks.

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    When viewed from the front like in the first pic, the car has a lot of presence and the side view of the car (2nd pic) is absolutely great!

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    Very impressive. The roof line reminds me of the 365GTC/4 of the early 1970's.

    Rossi, I like the Ferrari and they are clearly very different cars....but I think the profile has numerous design similarities to the Cayman.

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    Looks like a C5 Corvette to me

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    Looks like what the 612 should have looked like and not what the 575 replacement should look like...at all.

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    Nice...I like it alot!

    It looks NOTHING like a C5.

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    It does look like a C5!

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    It does look a little like a C6, but I'm sure we all remember all the comments about how that looked similar to the 360. It's not like Ferrari would completely revamp their design approach because of a corvette.

    Oh, I forgot, if the engine isn't behind the driver it must look like a Vette....

    I like the C5 and C6, but these cars have no real design elements in common other then the basic layout....

    Wishful thinking? The Cayman S looks a little bit like the 911, so this means the 599 looks like the 911???

    C'mon guys, don't be absurd, this is getting ridiculous.
    As much as I like Porsche, the 599 is a very interesting product and I like it a lot and it doesn't look a bit like a Porsche, nothing, NADA.

    RC, you missed my point completely.....all I was pointing out is that in profile the 599 has some design elements that are very similar to the Cayman. I'm not comparing the actual cars!!

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    c5,c6,cayman....what else..i would say the rear looks like a lexus sc430

    I didn't miss your point at all. I don't see any similarity or any common design elements, sorry. Of course I'm no design expert but from what my eyes tell me: Cayman and 599...nothing in common, sorry.

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    side shot looks a little like a Vette ............. good thing they have the 430 or Ferrari would be in real trouble .


    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    still dont see any similarities .....what do you see in common ocean? except that they are both coupe?

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    jeah sure if cars were 2D objects, but it just so hapens they are 3D. The vette has classic muscle car elements, while Ferrari has fluent, cuved mixing with razor sharp, lines

    Re: Two new pics of the 599 GTB !!!

    I also think the 599 and Cayman share one design element : the bubbly ROOFLINE.

    And while I'm at it, also notice the location of the side air intakes and the front wings..
    Btw, anyone recall back then when the Cayman was still disguised, there was an interesting speculation that it will have some sort of flying butress instead of a hatchback? Look at the Cayman's rear pillars...call me crazy but they can be changed into flying butress not unlike the 599..if only Porsche can get a supplier for the rear glass..

    Just my 2 cents.
