Purchase Advice - 355 or 360
I am a Porsche 911 owner for over 25-years, but have admired friends Ferrariís and always wanted one (like so many, Iím sure!) I may be ready to take the plunge, but am a bit afraid of cost of ownership compared to my Porsche experience. The great thing about the Porscheís is that they are very fun to drive, satisfying to own and reliable. In my experience - do the required service, expect something to break once in a while, but they are reliable.
Now I am probably in the 355 or 360 affordability range and find both cars pleasing, so I am trying to choose the right model based on reliability and cost to keep. While I am sure that many will say ďif you are concerned with cost, stay with the 911Ē, but I am interested in opinions. All things being equal, I like the 355 and the price range for that is less than the 360, but then I donít want to spend the difference in maintenance on the 355! Iím located in Fort Lauderdale, so I will be looking for an impendent for support, and welcome recommendations on these cars and service.
Thanks for your insight and time.
