I Test Drove a '91 Testarossa
Couple of days ago I had opportunity to test drive a Testarossa. When I was hunting for my first Ferrari last year, I put several cars on my list, but discarded the Testarossa for various reasons so it did not make my short list. Of the cars I drove, my favorite was the 575 but I ended up with my 360 as it was more affordable and I like the exterior design a bit better.
So, I took the TR for a 10 minute drive. After 5 minutes I realized that I could never be happy with the TR ... the seat position is made for some one much shorter than 6'-1", the gear shift presses into my thigh, the steering wheel is too close to my chest and it is generally a very uncomfortable car. I don't mean to diss you TR people out there, but I know now why those cars all have very low miles. No one can stand to drive it very much.
