    It's ironic then that the California name was clearly a reference to a past convertible...

    The reference was to the entry level. Dino was the Ferrarina. Almost like a Ferrari.

    250 California was a convertible version of a v12 coupe. A different speech. Different story. 2008 California was brand new car: 2+ convertible rht

    Wow, that is awful. I hope it doesn't look like that. It better be real fast so no one sees it. Pista's and F8s just went up in value.

    I think it looks better than F8. Not better than 488 though.

    The proportions are way off, I hope that isn't close to the real thing. I'm sure they can do better.

    It’s just a photoshopped SF90 with random changes to make it look different. And only at the back, at that.

    They have no more info than is in this thread and it’s pure conjecture.

    Even too lazy to at least change up anything on the side of the car.

    ? If that be the case the F8 derivatives will be going through right into 2023.

    I was told the F8's will be selling along with the LB

    If that is the case, I’d assume that the LB would be priced lower than the F8.
    Or wait. If the LB has greater performance, the price could be higher!

    I thought F8 ends production in 2022, unless things have changed.

    They see the 458 platform as 'easy money' without risk as a lot of expensive engineering time went into refining the F8 program.

    Yes, and on that basis why wouldn’t Ferrari produce an F8 special version as well - it’s another money spinner.

    I was replying to the LB if being released 2022 that means you wont see them well into 2023 and i was told the LB will be sold along with the F8.

    I was more of the opinion the LB would be released this year which gives the LB and F8 through 2022.

    I was told ever so slightly lower in price of the F8. Power the same as it has the electric.

    Ones own choice V6 vs V8 , New lay out vs old lay out.

    F8 fades away and the V8 is then the SF90 pushing up the price and the new LB then becomes what the 458,488 ,F8 was. Its the new rear Ferrari entry.

    The Portofino and Roma still have the V8 but for how long ? But so disappointed in both of these 2 as they have wet sumps . Even the V12 still have dry sumps as every Ferrari SHOULD have.
