    hey you are right supraman

    1972 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder
    1963 Ferrari 250GT SWB Spyder California
    1960 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder
    1953 Ferrari 340 MM Touring Spyder
    etc.

    alot of them had the name california too
    Funny though cause the 550 and 575 had barchetta and superamerica...



    What proof is there apart from Google search results or Wikipedia?
    AFAIK Ferrari rarely officially used the term "spider" in the past anyway. Browsing thru the archives on Ferrari's owner's site, I couldn't really find anything with an Y.



    I have proof....I have old copies of Automobile Year, published in the 50's and 60's and it is spelled "spyder".

    Guys I still don't like this italian corvette!!!



    You're not alone, the last good looking ferrari 12 was the TR imo.



    You both need to see the car in the flesh. One cannot judge from pictures. The car does not resemble a Corvette in the slightest.



    Keep in mind folks that many of the Corvette's design cues originate from Ferrari.

    Due to arrive somewhere in 2009, looks a little like the alfa spider






    I like the looks, but modern F-cars are spIders, not spYders (as shown in the pictures).

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Just to kick the hornets nest a little more, I went to ferrari.com, where they have a history of cars as well as information about the current cars. They were and are all called "Spider" on that site, which I suppose should be taken as the gospel, since it's a factory site.
