California spotted in Tokyo
 
I saw a California here in Tokyo, "crawling" down the busy street. My first impression was more of a Mas or Toyota Celica. Not impressed. I must be getting old. Sorry for the talked over and out topic. w/ smiles Jimmy

It is a Maserati!

+1, but it is sold as a Ferrari. Mind you, not that I do not like Mas. Aside from the mentioned Calfornia, others spotters like 612s, 599s, 430s,...well, did not get any rushes. Could it be that my hormones are low or maybe I need a new heart ? w/ smiles Jimmy

Not at all.

I just think the California is not an exciting Ferrari.

Saw the new Alfa today in a mag...thinking WAY too expensive @ $300k, and it looks way too similar to the CA...what is FIAT thinking?

the new SLS AMG looks hot, and I am not a fan of MB, but would get that baby, new-gullwing over the CA anyway...sorry.

Gcalo 07-24-2009 09:24 AM

I would think they are now crossplatforming in the GM manner.

They have been spoiled with Ferrari's successes and probably think that all their cars will now be $250-$300K winners.

I saw a few new Alfa's 2 years ago in Italy and they look very nice especially the small convertible which I would bet is a variant of the Maserati. However, the pricing is another issue.

+1. I see that you were "spoiled" when you visited Tokyo ??? w/ smiles Jimmy

Oh, so those are exercise bars then????

Isn't hostess a cupcake?

Now thats a strange thing. I started a thread two days ago on the general section, with exactly the same thoughts about thinking the California looking like a Celica.

Gcalo 08-10-2009 08:31 AM

If Maserati introduces their convertible model this Fall sales of the California might tank further especially if the Maserati is a hard drop top.

I take it that I am not the only one with this skewed viewpoint. Thanx. w/ smiles Jimmy

I don't know, but the Ferrari California is really cool and stylish.

Nothing wrong with your own opinion and taste. We're all different and we tick to different things. Glad that you like the car. w/ smiles Jimmy

Brother i have bought you a brand new cane:thumbsup: If you wish to exchange it for another model they do various types...:banana_1:

Granucci 08-14-2009 01:52 PM

now now, diff. strokes ... afterall I believe that California will appeal to someone, just not more likely me. ESPECIALLY at that price.

would rather wait for a alterante 12 cylinder style, likely the new 599 convert/targa topped being bantered about, ok, BY ME

wishing.

Gcalo 08-14-2009 02:03 PM

599's at $247K are getting very tempting!
