Berlinetta!!! I dont know if there are any REAL reasons to get one over the other. With the GTS you'll face maintinence on the top, but I think they're no more suceptable to damage than any other top. I just love the looks of a GTB.

I love the coupes and I live in California. I just like the fact that the car is more rigid and I think the Berlinetta looks better than the Spider. The only plus I can give the Spider over the Berlinetta is the fact that you'll hear the engine better.

I would drive both if you can then make your decision.

Personal taste & purpose

It all boils down to what you are looking for. As stated earlier, probably the best arguments for getting GTS is the open air feeling and more direct engine music to your ears. Of course there are downsides also. If your taste is no roof, then that is what you should get. I used to own a Berlinetta myself few years ago and I enjoyed the car very much without any serious problems (manual shift, a must). I liked the spider also but in Japan this is not very practical. The only real purpose here is to show off to others. If where you live is suited for spider, that might be the choice. Either way, enjoy. Jimmy
