    Paul,

    As I said before, I have nothing but awesome respect for the gentleman you are, and that started long before you being my fellow moderator and long before I ever thought I’d ever be moderator.

    Many times, one takes greater pleasure in disagreeing with a friend than agreeing with most people, and that’s exactly the case here. Don’t know if I’ll be able to convey it properly, but sometimes I do expect you to disagree with me, like a voice of balance and reason. That’s how through your eloquence I end up rethinking and questioning my own thoughts, and that’s how one grows and improves as a person and a member of this community, and you contribute to both in my case.

    As for the last part of your intervention, I agree Ferrari will profit quite a lot with this new SUV. If they’ll use that hefty revenue to built proper supersports cars is somewhat less clear from where I stand, once I foresee two potential hurdles:

    1) The brand wanting to.
    2) Government agencies letting them, due to environmental policies.

    However, I do hope some good comes out of this new Ferrari marketing and production strategy.

    Kindest regards,

    Nuno.

    Jack, you do have a point. I hadn’t thought of it that way. Who knows, maybe given enough time, I’ll get used to the idea!

    Kindest regards,

    Nuno.

    Mate, I totally agree, but not quite big enough, otherwise I’d have bought the Mrs one last week when her car came up for replacement. She picked an E class cab as it was, but mine comes up shortly, but I looked at the Alfa and the Levante, but although I like them both a lot, just a bit smaller than the range sport I have, and really I’ve settled having to get a full size rangie SV

    Its a very different world out there today, I do believe in buying whatever makes you happy, I will always be a Ferrari is in my blood person, Im just sad that Ferrari isnt the rare breed that it was years ago .One more disappointment is the exorbitant prices of these cars that puts Ferrari fanatics like myself way of contention. I really do love the 488 GTB and Spyder, Im not a fan of paddle shifted cars, but this machine is so beautiful that if my pockets were much deeper, I would buy one despite the the electronic gearbox...

    Ferrari has too many models. 3 should be the max. That has ways been the run. Front engine, rear engine, and a "4 seater". Such as the 355, 575, 612..or the 328, 412, testarossa.

    They are saturating the market, and seemingly forgetting about the cars they have produced in the past, which are still available for sale on the used market. Ferrari is no longer that mysterious car. It's just another appliance with red paint..

    Ferrari killing the gated shifted was an infinitely greater sin than making an SUV. If Ferrari would just make a light weight six speed Dino successor they could build a frickin' pickup truck for all I care.

    Regardless of your opinion of CH as an automotive journalist, he does make some interesting observations regarding the future of the industry, The apparent reliance of manufacturers on that sweet sweet SUV money and the potential risks of relying on public opinion make for a less appetizing future.
    Perhaps if the FF had been more successful, there may not have ever been an FUV.

    the good thing about a offering a Good SUV is assuming it sells maybe it will allow Ferrari to offer an NA V8 special car like the Porsche GT3 ... nice 9000 rpm 4.0 liter 13.5 compression ratio screaming engine ... probably would not do a manual trans .. but building cars like like the SUV could allow the luxury of building a few thousand of these ...
