    Are we expecting the online reveal on the same day (like Monza) or is this just a VIP preview for a privileged few?

    The front overhang looks massive or is it just the photo angle?....

    They have been building V8s on the V12 line for years - so it is certainly not evidence that new cars are not selling. I know this because I have indeed walked the line many times. The only ‘order with no wait’ that would mean they are struggling to sell is if dealers are ordering for stock and people are walking off the lot in quantity with pre-spec’d cars. Are you saying this is happening on a scale basis in the US? If it is then discounts will be readily available as dealers look to shift inventory. Saying there is no wait is different to no waiting list. If people are ordering their spec and receiving an instant allocation, Ferrari production still equates to sales (give or take the odd car). If Ferrari dealers are ordering numerous cars for stock then there is a problem but I don’t believe that is happening on a scale basis.

    Quite a few months back friend of mine got 10k of list price on a brand new 2018 488 spider that was in dealer inventory
    Rare situation but shows that volume increase is pressuring selling prices in certain areas But not all markets.Certain
    dealers will discount Lusso if you look hard enough as well

    Is any of that new? Most previous models have been quietly discounted at the end of life at least somewhere in the world - including 458 - but they are really the exception. I don’t really believe we are seeing anything we haven’t seen before and to argue that the new models are unpopular is fanciful to me.

    I see the front end looking like F8 / Pista .

    Also the side openings to be higher than the 488.

    I wonder what the door handles will look like ?

    Cant wait to see her :)
