  3. F40 over F50 AND 360 over 355

  4. F40 over F50 AND 355 over 360

    In Ferrari-land, the new model is not always considered the better model. There are many who prefer the F40 over the F50. There are many who prefer the 355 over the 360. In both cases, you have the older, more angular style versus the newer, more rounded style. That makes me wonder... is there a correlation?? Let's see what the poll says...

    Not by much in either case, all 4 are great in their own way

    Interesting... so far, not quite as strong a correlation as I expected.

    Doesn't help the correlation theory much.

    Bubbly looks chubby compared to old school.

    Actually, "bubbly" is old school (250 TR, P3, P4, etc.);
    angular was the 70's & 80's new school (3x8, Testarossa, etc);
    the current generation is retro (back to "bubbly").


    P.S. "Bubbly" is champagne... the term is "curvy"... or I can go with "voluptuous". ;)

    F40 way over F50
    360 way over 355 - have had both at the same time, next to each other in the garage, same color - there was no comparision. The 355 was put up for sale.

    Interesting... 21-9-16-28-1...
    the correlation is there, but not as strong as I thought...
    I was expecting more like 35-10-5-50...

    however, 355vs360 is in a dead heat (37-37), which is strangely inconsistent with the other poll...

    Need more votes!

    I'd have to agree with this, although I'm mostly thinking in terms of external appearance when it comes to both (especially 355 vs 360).

    At 100 votes, we have 28-17-17-37-1.

    So, F40 over F50 by a vote of 54-45.

    And, interestingly, 355 over 360 by the exact same margin.

    Both of those are much closer than I expected.

    F40 way over the F50
    355 over the 360, but not by much

    I personally think the F40 is 1 of the greatest Ferraris ever, if not the greatest of all. The F50 design just does not look right: uninspiring nose section, too large windows, too large wing, etc. But, as with many cars, it looks better in real life than from a photo. I do like that mighty sound though!
    355 vs 360: I like them both in their own style.
