Click the image above for more hi-res pics of the Ferrari Concept 2008

We realize that not everyone will agree with us on this one -- passions seem to run highest over the cars that the fewest number of people will drive -- but if the Ferrari California looked like this concept, we'd put down a deposit right now. Once someone else gave us the money to do so.

Sure, from the A-pillar forward is pure Maserati, and there's no way a front intake like that could or should make it onto a Ferrari. Still, it's a good looking front end, and we don't mind design elements going up as well as down. Besides, a couple of keystrokes can get a proper Ferrari nose in place.

But from the A-pillar to the rear... those are the kind of aggressive, subtle lines we like in our Ferraris. Which is not to say we don't like the California -- we just like this a little better... A coupe, please. That color.

      I bet this is just a modded corvette.

      This is how the next corvette should look like. Sweet!

      Too bulky to be a Ferrari.

      you people realize this is just a photoshopped maserati?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hah! That's a Corvette with a coule of grand of body panels. Can't fool me;)

        Sadly I think it is a Ferrari and its sad to say that they can't design a unique looking car anymore, at least this model. There could be copy write infringement with this model.

        good car, bad ferrari.

        botched attempt to capture ferrari design.
        its a nice looking vehicle but definitely more Corvarati than Ferrari. tailights are about all that made it over from Ferrari

      Looks like a cross between the F430 or 360 and a 250 GTO or something like that.

      This is not a photochop, it's a 3d model rendered out. it's a lot better than his lambo, which was awful. but why is this news? there are tons of wannabe car designers out there making up designs of whatever strikes there fancy. if you want to see this stuff, beside the sites for schools, go to http://cg-cars.com/

      best looking Corvette since the Stingray.

      Ok.. I do like it.. Shorten the nose slightly...make the crease from the intake before the rear wheels equal to the one flowing from the intake in the front fenders and make the headlights slightly more aggressive by sharpening a few lines and..... I'll take one too please...

      The front clip looks kinda Lotus-y, but I like it!

      The recessed grille is the only thing I like about this design.
