The newly released pictures of the facelifted California got me thinking - which would I have.





Now obviously the Ferrari is more powerful, but it's also twice the price. Regardless, which would you rather have if you could afford them?

The Ferrari.
Its actually the only one in their lineup that I would hypothetically choose, as for all the other ones I prefer the competition.
This however seems to hit that sweet spot of a really pretty droptop thats been designed with actually driving on public roads as the main focus.

In my opinion, the California is the least desirable of their current line-up. The California may be more suited for actually driving on the roads, but if I'm going to spend that much on a car, I'm not really buying a car for use as an actual car, per say. I'd be buying it for what it represents and the idea behind it. To me, the California is the least 'Ferrari' of the current range.

The current one, yes but I going to go out on a limb and suggest that this is going to be a night and day difference. I think Ferraris have gotten that little less desirable since they have all been so focused on lap times.

I honestly think they're better for it, regarding the hunt for laptimes. Ferrari has been a company built upon racing from the very start, so it's reasonable to continue the desire for Ferraris to be the fastest cars around.

At this end of the market, emotive arguments will form the vast majority of the buying decision for most people, so a company's ability to create a niche and strong image is vital. Not only for the company to market itself, but I think it gives the cars a great personality and ethos.

I don't mean to say that all Ferraris should be racing cars, but it tends to end up that way.

The California just never gelled with me, though I do agree that this new one is likely to be markedly different to the old.

Just to clarify, my pick IS based on this new one, not for the old one which always seemed a tad undercooked.

Maybe the picture of the f-type isn't as flattering as the California T but looking at them side by side I can't help but think that the California T is much better looking then the F-Type which I thought was worlds better then the previous Ferrari California.

Yes.

If I was in the market, I wouldn't boil it down to these two.

Is that considered trolling? Ok then.

California T is remarkably successful facelift for the maybe-ugliest-Ferrari-ever. But which sounds better: "I drive an F-type Jag" "I drive a Ferrari California..but wait it's the facelift, the one with pretty nose you know?".

Which sounds more impressive, "I drive a Jag" or "I drive a Ferrari" only car people care about what model it is, I had a friend come up to me and show me a picture of the ferrari she saw, I knew it was a California when I saw it but she didn't say "I saw a Ferrari California" she said "Wow I saw a Ferrari today"
Ferrari will always sound more impressive then Jaguar.

Tough choice, even if they were both the same price. I'm really impressed with the styling refresh on the Ferrari though. It might just be a case of 'flavor of the week', but it makes the Jag look kinda old and boring.

If I had the money, I would have to have so much money that the price difference is irrelevant anyway. So the Ferrari, easily. Just because Ferrari.

It's not trolling, it's just disruptive.


If you don't want any of them, just refrain from posting. If the question was "What would you buy", then OK, but it's not.
