    I don't like how the Enzo and the F430 share the same rear, it looks too similiar. Each model should be unique. Or maybe this is a new interpretation of the rear lights- traditionally it's just been two circlular lamps at either end for the lights (i.e. F355, F50, F40, 550). With this design, there was a clear differentiation between the models, yet it linked them all to a common design theme. The Enzo rear is such a strong design that there is little room to change, so maybe that's why the F430 looks so similiar to the Enzo.

    As for the design of the newer Ferraris, I think the design is a bit more lambo-aggressive with fewer curves compared to the the last generation of Ferraris, which placed more emphasis on curves, which lent it to a more softer, "prettier" look. The F355 is prettier looking than the F430, which looks more aggressive and serious.

    Talking about similarity reminds me of Benz. They are all pretty much the same. Porsche is not a lot better specially the front. Japanese cars have more distinctive styles under the same brand.
