    Thanks, it's a crop of a drawing I posted a while ago. Forgot to mention that the lights will probably be "rounded" rectangles so as to more gently transition from current round ones.

    Pretty sure it will be vertical or near vertical. Whether it opens depends on the angle (what it needs to clear inside) and if it wraps around the sides which will make opening it difficult.

    Is that a flat rear deck with buttresses similar to the p80? I hope so.

    How about this look for tail lights but a bit widely spaced compared to BB?

    Also triangular rear fender vent behind the door like where they are located on a 430 body? Though the vents like the tail lights have 'rounded corners'. Maybe a design theme...

    I think the pic certainly distorts the proportions and the arch if there is one left to right across the rear certainly isn’t that pronounced. I do think that their are some things that suggest Hurracan type lines however it won’t look like one at all. It will look like what we’ve been been seeing from Flavio and co. It will look like the J50 and the Deborah and the P80C had a love baby and this will have some signature lines and details and stuff that will establish their new design language.

    Believe it or not he was praising the car’s design and calling it the prettiest Ferrari in a while so we’ll see.

    A few positive words out of a thousand negative posts doesn’t mean much and further more what weight does his opinion hold. As much or as little as anyone else’s.

    So what’s the early word on production and availability? I missed out on a Pista, will this be more accessible to those, like myself, without “sufficient history” (lol)? My only new Ferrari purchase is an 812 that was just released from customs on Friday. Other than that, the only noteworthy components of my personal USP is being in my 40’s and a couple Corsa Pilota’s.

    This is a regular production car. The price tag is significantly higher though. Should be $700k or so.

    Yes of course current Ferraris are the best Ferraris ever.... I'm comparing to the competition, which Ferrari are lagging behind in construction (carbon), technology (fully active suspension) and performance. I'm simply saying Ferrari need to up their game, and lead the sector once more.

    Talk to your dealer and get on the allocation list. I think you should’ve able to get one. But be prepared to take a bath on the 812 if you decide to trade that in.

    Copy that. I spec’d the 812 to keep. I love the “sleeper” GT-style that the 812 brings to the equation. It just blends into traffic and most people scarcely take any notice. I can take the wife to dinner in it (much like I could my F12). Not the case with my Rosso Mars Performante... Regarding BB allocation list strategy, I have made overtures about getting on said list, only to be instructed that until the car is formally released, they do not formally construct their list.

    There’s one thing to simply express gut reactions. It’s another to have an agenda.
