Same issue - sluggish on power
I am also new to the Ferrari world, bought mine about 8 months ago.
Two days ago my '86 Testarossa started fine, I drove it a bit, turned it off and when I went to start it a few minutes later, it had very low power. You can actually hear a difference in the engine running and it idles about 200-300 RPMs lower then normal. Today, same thing. started fine, drove it for about 10 miles, turned it off, went to drive it half hour later and no power, real sluggish.
I also smell a bit of gasoline outside the car, but neither set exhaust pipes appears to pouring out dark exhaust.
Any ideas? What I probably really need is a referral for a reasonably priced mechanic in Silicon Valley. Any suggestions? God I love this car and it kills me not to be able to drive it!
