UGLY! I think it looks rather weird. And look at the sides, Fiat Coupe anyone?

Very confusing design. Too many lines. It would have looked a lot better had they kept it simple. Like the hardtop though. It'll still find a lot of takers.

Looks ugly, they've ruined it before even launching it.

Not that the Enzo was any prettier. The F430 is the only "sane" looking modern Ferrari right now.

This has got to be the most "unFerraried" Ferrari I have seen of late. Going cheap? Going cute? Going down the food chain? You bet. But then, cheaper doesn't necessarily have to equate to a massive compromise. Look at the Cayman; what a fantastic Porsche at a relatively lower price. I still haven't been able to decide on the poll between an F430 & a P 911, but if the California's performance is within the realm of a Cayman, I'm putting my vote on the Cayman right away.

I agree with previous comments that the design is too fuzzy. Many unnecessary design cuts & curves.

Agree with you all. A very 'un-Ferrarish' design. Especially the rear end with the low placed lights and the normal circular ones extending into the boot.

A Ferrari is not meant to be an Eclipse. This one's almost that already. Too little drama? Maybe red will make a difference. And the exhaust note will fix whatever else people have against it. I disapprove, but not that it matters much, hehe.
