    There are a few 6'6"-6'7" members who drive 550s.

    I'm 6'2" and couldn't get into a '89 TR that I was interested in. You may need a few seating mods to get into a 348 (?)

    I'm a short legged 6'4'' and have 2" headroom to spare and tons of leg room in my 330. Maybe it's made to wear a hat in.

    6'2", 308 GTS. Claustraphobic with the top on.
    I fit in my buddies TR much better. More room and the ergonomics are better for me.

    I'm 6' 2" but I'm built for speed, not comfort...so I fit all of them.

    I've got several lofty customers and a couple of seat rail and steering wheel spacer mods are required but a 6'5" guy now drives a 512M in comfort.....

    and the guy that drives the 360C speciale WITH roll cage is 6'3" and about 280lbs, but entry and exit is a jaw dropping spectacle!

    6'4" 36" inseam 308 GTS Plenty of headroom with the top on. I never keep it behind the seats - too cramped. Reverse and 1st sometimes a challange - have adapted leg positioning when anticipating these gears. Gosh I love this car!

    My dealer had a story that a TR was modified for Michael Jorden. Custom seat with a thinned bottom and back plus extensive mods to the bulkhead behind the seat which really made it work. He claimed it cost 100K! in the 80's. Can't verify. Take it as an interesting story.

    I'm 6 feet with a long torso... I tell ya, there is absolutely NO room in a Testarossa/512TR in my opinion. I need to decapitate myself in order to sit in the car! And the dashboards come down so low there's hardly any room for legs.

    I believe that the Ferrari 348 has more room in it (for sitting) than ANY other 2-seat Ferrari ever (excluding the 355, which is basically the same car). There is SO much headroom! And there's a shelf behind the seats.

    My head wants to touch the ceiling and the side pillar in the Ferrari 360, and in the Maranello, the shelf behind the seats are really annoying--can't put the seat back!

    Agree/disagree?

    I'm 6'4 and drive a 348ts. Getting in and out can be tricky. I have to swing the door all the way open to do it without injuring myself. Slightly more leg room would be nice, but hey, it's a Ferrari!

    I'm 6'6" and drive a 1999 550. I had the seat lowered 1" by removing the risers
    under the seat rails. The seat still is powered. I love it. I fit great. Previous sports cars
    included M3(no sunroof), 330ci(same), 944 , 240Z.

    My brother in law in Phoenix says he talked to AZ pitcher Randy Johnson, who's 6'9', i believe. Randy said Ferrari customized his 360 by lowering the floor under the seat to accomodate his height. I'd have to see it to believe it, because the car is so low already.
