    Well it was already said Monday that the colour was named after the car. And seeing it has already leaked that the name is 812 GTS, I think it is pretty safe to assume that it will be called Grigio GTS. If you read the thread a few pages back, all the info is there:)

    Are you new to Ferrari? (kidding of course, but couldn't resist!)

    I am pretty sure that the "targa" design is intentional for a number of reasons (structural rigidity mainly), but they are also safer in case of an overturn. It will never be as good as a coupe though.

    For sure not.
    This simple adaptation of the roof mechanism is painfull and a great missed chance.

    I'm thinking they have some sort of solution. When I think of how far they have come, just between the 458 Spider and the 488 Spider, I would not be surprised if they have done a marvellous job of getting rid of most of the cowl shake and scuffle. I'm confident we won't have to chase the steering column around like in the 458 Spider.

    I'm optimistic:)

    Yessir.

    Ferrari should have taken a cue from Aston Martin. The lines on the F12 are there for a clean, low hipped, svelte rear. Instead we got an
    afterthought akin to the resto-mod type builds "cut it off a 488 and weld it on an 812" on whatever show you like on Motor Trend Channel.

    This is what a front engine convertible needs to look like.

    A couple of things I noticed:

    It looks like there are separation lines that are clean enough for a dual color upper/chassis combo?

    The rear seems rather crowded where the fake windows are. Wonder if taller people end up with their head just right next to that panel.

    The front pillars are rather thick... perhaps for rigidity but does seem pretty fat.

    Anyone who’ve seen the car in person feel the same way?

    So agree. The new DBS lightweight V12 cab is totally stunning. Be a GREAT car as a second hand purchase 2 years in.
