  • Ferrari SF90 Stradale announced (Quad Tail Lights)

    Ferrari announced a new car today. What I found interesting was the quad tail lights on it. Looks like the 'ol C8 looks like a Ferrari "complaint" will still continue. (Never quite understood how looking like a Ferrari was a bad thing, but that's just me.)
    Pictures of Ferrari’s much anticipated new hybrid supercar has already been leaked a bit, in a now-deleted blurry picture on Instagram, but now there’s a full set of what appear to be Ferrari press photos of what is called the SF90 Stradale. It’s clearly crammed full of Ferrari DNA, though it does have a somewhat busy, techno-fetishy sort of look.

    Thanks P-tree! Very nice, supposedly about 970 HP, a hybrid, and around $1M — but so far none of those are Ferrari confirmed. Here are a couple of pictures from the above linked article:

      Purely purposeless curiosity is what follows. It will irritate if taken as a serious proposal. Obviously Corvette os an ordinary company that makes what it has traditionally made.

      Assume that Corvette annually produced and sold at a price point above or at least close to production cost: A very small number extreme cars. What impact might that have on the perception of Corvette? Just as a mental experiment and nothing more and only for the willfully curious.

      Serious adults should ignore this one.

        AH FERRARI, My buddies drive Ferraris. Well, when their cars are working. Two of the three keep asking me questions about the C8 I think they are ready to Hang It Up with the Ferraris and place an order for a C8. A million Dollars for a car?? That is tempermental ??? I really do not get why anyone needs a car with more than 500HP.
        Also does anybody know the third reason or as Stated a Legal Issue for the delay of C8. The other two being the frame issue and Electrical issue with the possible adoption of GMs new Electrical Architecture. I will put my money on the third issue being a Legal issue may have very well been with Ferrari and they may have had their Lawyers doing their legal thing that they do and want to SNOOP into what GM was doing. , Maybe concerning the back glass panel or the configuration of the top, sure would like some informed feedback on this one.

          All three have been fully solved, and in fact more than recently. I do not know what they definitively were, but from what I learned the frame issue was truly minor, occurring during a scheduled “testing to destruction” process was and immediately resolved; the second issue was electrical and also solved (maybe no more than a minor software fix or a batch of bad batteries (as also occurred during the 2014 model year); and the third which supposedly took a short while was GM’s building up across its whole product line, a car that is less hackable — also now behind them.

          How long did those three result in the car not appearing as soon as we wished? Was/it it ever behind GM’s original internal schedule — or has this been another internet snowball that kept on growing?

          All I definitively know, is that the car is on track at this time.

            The back end of that Ferrari is positively weird. Maybe it'll look better in the metal, if one is lucky enough to actually encounter one, but right now I'd say it's just strange at best, ugly at worst. At least it's distinctive, which is important to exotic car owners. No one will mistake it for a "lowly" Corvette."

            But I can already hear the whines that Ferrari "stole" the Corvette's taillights"

              The only rumors of a "legal" issue I've heard is that GM was worried about the legal risks in offering a 1,000HP hybrid C8 to the general public, and had their lawyers working overtime to determine if, how, and when that would be a concern and how to address it. But I'd take that rumor with a very large boulder of salt.

                  The rear end actually kind of reminds me of the C7
