Well as of today I own a Porsche 993 and have always Loved the style and sound of a Ferrari. After driving a 456GT and a Mondial I am Itching for one even more. I am considering selling my 993 adding some dough and getting myself into a 355 or a 550 perhaps.
I have a few questions.
1. Has anyone here made that transition before? 911 to ferrari?
2. How is the reliability compared to a Porsche?
3. What is easier to work on yourself 355 or 550?
4. What would you buy 355 or 550 if you had the choice and why?
Thanks alot for any advice givin!
2: Not as to a Porsche, but, there are many vars there....also, What year 911?
3: Depends, but the maint. on a well sorted, either model is easily the 550 over the 355
4: They are different experiences in terms of cornering and torque etc.
550 is a big torque car, large car, heavier car, and not as nimble as the 355..I would absolutely choose the 355 for mountain cornering, but would love the GTish experience of the 550
Looks, both beauties for their representations.
And I'm a great fan, now, of the 12 cylinder models.
Maintenance yearly, on a sorted car will be less on the 550...by far.
