Yeah but those "F car die hards" are F car die hards today because Ferrari did something new and amazing back in the day which was totally different from others...the California is todays day and age's new and different.California looks like a Maserati. Although it's a great car in its own right, it is a different market segment than the 430 and 599 obviously. Therefore, many F car die hards won't approve. I personally don't like the styling because it is not low and wide enough. Reminds me of the first gen (circa 2002-2003) Masterati GT.
