At first the CA was not a car I liked or wanted, and seeing one in person warmed me up a bit. Others who have actually driven or own one, like them or hate them: Even if they acquired one.
the jury is out, but it seems to be on performance rather than looks for the persons who were willing to obtain one.
I've heard there is a set of problems with the trany in the gear box [CA], which seems to have a problem and just after a few miles.
Don't know if it is driver error or such, but some owners who have experience were warry.
As for value: two-seater will command less drop in depreciation.
As for down the road? who knows, but 2-seaters always tend to depreciate less/hold better value than > 2 seats.
BUT, you do know they will drop, considerably in value, over the first six or so years?
Do NOT expect, even with some limited higer performance Ferraris, to hold original value, if of the newer set.
Some will re-gain better but many will find their depreciated value, as all cars, and tend to hold there. Ferraris tend after full depreciation to stay steady at IMO better than most mass produced cars, but things being relative, you also must note the maintenance costs/year.
Since you mention < four years, I have no advice towards your personal desires, but to say, probably the two-seater is your least concern.
