    Hey thats the same picture as mine which came today. Dealer says i can pick it up in max 4 to 5 weeks. I wonder how close the vins will be. I am on the mobile phone but these two pics look very much alike. Need to check on a bigger screen later.

    ^ that would be funny, but based on their production procedure I'd bet it's unique. Based on what I've seen from IG during the recent Ferrari family day at the factory, it seemed like nearly every car on the V8 line was a Pista or Pista Spider!

    SoCal - congrats and how exciting bro, very cool feeling waiting for your new Ferrari to land

    The angles are slightly different. Look at the lights on the ceiling.

    Get this; when my 488 was being built in the Spring, my awesome dealer arranged a factory tour for me and my family. We thought for sure the car would be on the assembly line at the time. Nope. It was finished early. It arrived at dealer here in the States the DAY AFTER we left for Italy for a two week trip. Had to walk around the factory knowing my car was at home waiting for me. Doh!

    Anyone know how often ships leave port with cars? Is it once a month? Bi monthly? Once a week? Daily? Curious if anyone actually knows.

    Congratulations! You will love it! My guess is the car will arrive in 4-6 weeks.

    Going back to the pictures. I mean I used to be in metal fabrication. Looking at the weldments which nobody will see in the future (hopefully). Just zoomin in into the pictures. They look kind of different to what i am used to in fabrication. Is it just me or how do you see that. Its is cosmetics, that is right but showing these pictures it should look like a 350 k product. Am i too picky ?

    I think you have a point but the good news is that the fit and finish is pretty good. I don’t have metal working history so I’m not sure what is acceptable or not. I just assumed it is what it is for what you see at this stage.

    Okay...now this I define as torture; just got an email from Ferrari telling me that my Pista has been completed, and then it gives me the link to see the photo. The website, however, is doing that redirect thing again, preventing me from seeing it. Must...see...picture *GASP*

    Interesting that the model behind it is a different car. I was under the impression the assembly lines weren't shared.
