Seeing the 430 Scuds, Scud 16Ms, and 599s, that was a totally diffferent experience. Watching them being built, you just stand there dreaming about driving one.
Remember the EVO article is writtne by journalist who don't want to be cut out of the information and inside access loop by Ferrari.
Ferrari reads forums like this. It knows how poor the reaction has been to the California. I am certain the EVO article is a Ferrari marketing exercise. Call me a cynic. Onno
Yeah, I never thought of it that way. They are basically telling you what you want to hear or what Ferrari want you to hear ie: that it's a true Ferrari through and through.
Now seeing the production line of the Scuderia and 599, must be awesome to see. These are two models I often day dream about driving
Complete marketing exercise. Access to many of those parts of the factory is near impossible to obtain and photography is completely forbidden.
As a reference, I do not remember similar "inside the factory" articles on the 599 or 430.
It's true, this article was the first I've come across and that is why I thought it was interesting. With the 430 and 599, people fell in love with these cars just by looking at the pictures of them, so I guess there was no need to ''convince'' people that they are great Ferrari's unlike what they are having to do with the California.
I know I said that I cant rule out I would never buy one but the California would definitely not be my choice of a first Ferrari as it is with most orders received for it apparently, as I can think of many other Ferrari's that I would love to own and go through before the new California.
