    little thought about the 430 SCUDERIA.......

    Just went to the dealer to check out the 1st 430 SCUDERIA here. I have to say I have no feeling of the car. I feel strange about that, because I love Ferrari and especially those racing edition. This is the 1st Ferrari that do not impress me at all. Maybe I need to test drive it in order to fall in love with it. The look just don't have the x-factor. This is the 1st time that I think not all Ferrari look great. I can't believe that.

    Re: little thought about the 430 SCUDERIA.......

    you're gonna have a hard time finding people who will identify with that feeling you got :-) I think...

    Re: little thought about the 430 SCUDERIA.......

    The reason is probably related to its similarity to the 430. Other than some exterior cosmetic changes, the two cars look alike. Thus, nothing new from a styling standpoint. Performance enhancements is what the Scud is all about.

    It is like looking at a 997, 997S, 9974S, 997TT, 997GT3, and 997GT2.

    Well done, Nick.

    You have finally acknowledged that Porsche is covering all the bases by offering such a wide choice of variants on the same platform.

    So which one are you going to buy when your clutch fails.

    And that my friend is my problem with Porsche.

    For a few more bucks we will sell you a look alike with some additional enhancements. And if that is not enough, I have something here with even more enhancements. And if that is not enough, here are more. On and On and On.

    WTF, just sell me a Porsche!

    thats because porsche owners aren't too anal about the looks of their cars.. something thats for ferrari owners clearly number one priority. And thats exactly why i agree with the initial post.. looks like a 430 with some cheap plastic parts that do not fit it. BUT i have to see it first.

    ps. i dont think porsche owners are bothered when they see a slightly different 997, an 4S, instead of their GT3, for instance. I think they'd wave and smile when they see one

    THE above was my 997d post BTW!!

    Not a problem. That's exactly what we want.

    If and when Porsche starts making cars that people don't want, then you have a valid point.

    Re: little thought about the 430 SCUDERIA.......

    nberry, YOU ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOO RIGHT! HEHEHE

    i hate to say it, but Porsche has joined the ranks of Toyota... that's why I sold my 997 C2S Cab., and ordered a Scuderia... if anything, I may still one day be interested in a 997 GT3RS MKII... only porsche with a soul... sorry P fans!

    That's what i think too.

    Although I am not impress with the look, but I think this would be one of the best drivers car.

    Re: little thought about the 430 SCUDERIA.......

    The great thing about Porsche's is the amount of mod's available. Chipping, exhaust, body kits, wheels , interior options etc. You can buy a 996TT and get 700 hp out of it, buy a Cayenne for your wife and it would still be less expensive then buying a Ferrari, which has all kinds of soul, but a whole lot of ego to go along with it. Having said that, I love the 360CS, and I'm sure the 430 Scud is fantastic as well.
