Click for more of the Ferrari California in San Francisco

This was bound to happen sooner or later, and sooner it is: still over a month before its official public unveiling at the Paris Motor Show in October, the new Ferrari California has been spotted in its element: the streets of San Francisco.

The car was ostensibly there for a promotional photo shoot, but its presence in Northern California this close to Pebble Beach makes us wonder if Ferrari isn't planning an early peek on the putting green in Monterey. Whether at Pebble or Paris, we'll be there to bring you the latest, so stayed tuned. In the meantime check out the (admittedly blurry) photos in the gallery below.

      The the chosen style of rim and the way the wheels fill the wells make it look like a kit car. Not good, not good...

      They have one driving around Southeast Michigan in the Birmingham/Bloomfield Hills portion for about 3 weeks. I'm assuming it's going to be related to the Dream Cruise.

      I might be weird or something, but I don't like this car.

        the cars ferrari makes are all well done, just wait until you see one in public roads. this is a grand tourer, build for comfort rather then a track car, also the designs are always a year or two ahead of their time, thats why old models look fresh still. this car is sweet and the perfect choice for someone who likes to drive their cars, not just having them on the garage all cover up. it might not be the greatest super car, and i am sure ferrari was not aiming for that, I think what they were looking for was practicability.

        it's funny - i agree totally with you (on the not liking, not the you being weird)

      I don't think it's ugly but from the rear it looks more like something Toyota would make than Ferrari. Like a new convertible Supra or something.

      I think the general conclusion that this car is soft is going to be proven off the mark once it hits the streets. Let's not forget that this is the second car being developed with the full input of one M.Schumacher (the first being the F430 Scuderia) and he is reportedly very satisfied with the "grip, road feel and especially the steering". If you can please Mikey S., you can probably please the masses. Think of it as a baby 599.

      The new California really is ugly. Once, Ferrari were all about the brutal design, aestethics and power. Today it's more about "hair-styling" than Aggresive styling. :(
