    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.

    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.

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

    Nor sure why the would limit the run - unless they substantially up HP or make it a HGTE

    LDM has already stated it will be a limited model in the latest interview and it will go to select Ferrari owners.

    Maybe the 599 SuperAmerica!!! A sure sign that there are carcasses to shift at a premium before the new model in 2011

    I heard it will be named NART Spyder and will be limited to 100ex (75ex with soft top and 25 with ? top...)
    Also heard it will have GTO engine.
    One owner specced his and the price came out to 490k Euros.

    Anyone heard same?
