599 Covertible for Pebble Beach

According to www.caranddriver.com Ferrari will introduce a folding hardtop (like the California) for the 2011 model. It will have 635 HP and cost close to $400k.

Wonder if they'll make a GTO version down the road.

Jim, according to the article this car will have 635HP so it is between a regular 599 and a GTO.

It might make it equal to the 599 with the extra weight - I could see it with the HGTE package. But not the full on GTO. That will be the last hoooorah for the 599.

I hope this car will be as beautiful as its potential. They could get this car just right with the Cali top.

You know something we don't? To be honest ... I hope they will not stretch it that far

I'm really curious to see how they incorporate the flying buttress into the folding hard-top design....
