I’d like to point out that I think that most of the time people say they don’t like the 488, they’re not saying it’s a bad or worse car. It’s just that some people don’t like the course Ferrari has chosen for the present and the future. Things that one didn’t associate with Ferrari until Marchionne, like: downsizing, turbo, hybrid, SUV, while the 458 represents the last hurrah for purists and one of the brand’s finest moments. In terms of Ferrari history and philosophy, the 458 is antagonist to the 488. For some, the most modern, faster car is always the better car. For others, the older car(s) are the epitome of what Ferrari represents. We’ve also seen this at Porsche: air cooled vs water cooled. It’s not that one is better than the other. For me, the 458 is a milestone car for Ferrari, the 488 isn’t. That’s one thing. A fact. Like saying the 488 is much faster than a 458 (although top speed is pratically the same, acceleration is brutal and MUCH different), or that the 458 sounds better than the 488. It’s pratically a matter of physics and mechanics: NA always sounds better than turbos, Ferrari or otherwise. I think the 488 isn’t a bad car, or a worse car. Just not as important in the grand Ferrari scheme of things. For some, the above and history are absolutely irrelevant. For others like myself, it’s vital: I like to own pieces of history, namely ones you know won’t come back. Kind regards, Nuno.
