An extension of Boxer42's subject about the best 2+2 Ferrari on the market...what makes a Ferrari great? What makes it stand out from the other Ferraris? Engine? Feeling you get when driving? History? I'd like to hear everyone's opinion.

To me, a Ferrari is a combination of a body to die for, a performant engine and a great history. It's the penultimate example of automotive art.
ps. hopefully MS can add to that history today :green:

One other qualification I would add, is that it has to stand the test of time (minimum 10 years post launch) and the market (long term values should rise after the initial 7-9 year depreciation period).
How would the Dino 246 GT fit this mold? It certainly has to stand the test of time. How will the Testarossa fit? I think this car is going to take a pounding in the future. Its' style is not aging well.

:eek:ha: Give the steady rise in Dino 246 values over the last decade and the general high, and steady demand for them, I would nominate it as one of the "greats". On the Testarossa :roll: , it is now almost 20 years post launch and they are worth about half what a Dino 246 can command. I have not seen much indication that Testarossa prices are heading north any time soon and the market does not seemed to have embraced them as either classic or timeless.

The reason I brought up the Dino is there was a time where the car did not fit our description. I believe it wasn't until about 3 years ago these cars began to be appreciated for what they were. Prior to that they were a "Dino" so people didn't like to look at them as a true Ferrari. A few years later....oh my that is beautiful.
