    I'm sorry to be hijacking the idea from RussianM3_dude but I was just wondering what you'd rate the California with the new pictures, posted here:

    Personally, I like it and dislike it at the same time. I admire the design and it looks good (minus the wheels and part of the back), but then the fact that it doesn't have a Race mode really turns me off. Its like someone on this forum has said, "Its the Ferrari for Beverly Hills wives!", and I agree with that. Ferrari needs to stop making these everyday looking cars and get back to what they do best - a car based on speed and style.

    I'll add a poll if I can manage :D

    I really like the car and it will fit very nicely into my stable. I have a harder edge sportscar now and this would be stunning for a touring car that I can enjoy with my wife.

    I really like the front and side styling. I don't care for the rear... but that's a compromise to enjoy having a convertible AND a hardtop. The car looks stunning with the top up however. That in itself is very rare as most hard top convertibles look like crap with the top up.

    Well based on simply looking at photos of the car however reading some very good technical data, I have no real opinion. Based on what I have seen I would rate it at a seven or so, though I can't say what exactly I think about it without seeing a couple reviews and road tests. Seems like a chic car as of yet though.

    4. I just don't really like it.

    Now if I was a Beverly Hills housewife (not one yet ;)) I'd choose the 456. Maybe the 612.

    . . .I give it a 8.

    I don't care for the wheels/would rather have BBS/Challenge wheels.
    The car looks good top up or down.
    I don't care about race mode in car like this.
    460bhp 0-62 in less than 4 seconds.
    It's a Ferrari you don't have to think about. . .get in and cruise /fast or slow!

    It's great that Ferrari can build cars that are so versatile.

    Cheers,
    JJ

    It would have been a 10 if it had a conventional manual tranny, so I gave it a 9.

    IT a cool car, come on, people, get over the fact that it is a hard top convertible!

    I give it a 8.

    I really like the front and the side view but the rear is so-so.

    i put 5 because the style in profile and from the rear looks bad.
    It seems the Pinninfarina guys wants to fiish the California before summer holiday....

    i like only the front of car, and interior well without this monstruous Tv...
