Click above for a high-res image gallery of the Ferrari California

The Ferrari California delves into new territory for Ferrari, both in theme and design. Many faithful to the marque may be against its styling, but the true test will be sales numbers. As Porsche has proved over the last few years, the addition of successful new models can be a valuable asset to a company's finances, and we're all in favor of Ferrari's increased capability to improve the breed. The LA Auto Show is the first time we've seen the car in its namesake state, and we took the chance to give it another close inspection after our recent first encounter with the Ferrari California in Sicily. The style is definitely growing on us, and we dearly loved the car in Azzurro Blue. Still on the fence? Check out the gallery below and see if you can make up your mind.

      it's said 1000 times. Photos don't do this car justice. It looks great in person.

      Looks like a Nissan.

        If you lived in Italy, there would be at least 500 people wearing red outside your door right now with axes and hammers and knives in their hands.

        :P

      Is this the car that the folks at Autoblog wrecked? (from Autoweek)

      Being a purist, I find it hard to accept a Ferrari without a shift lever. Paddle shifters are for wimps.

      Do you think this is the same one you crashed at the press event in Sicily?

      Give me black on Tan or black on Red.

      I have yet to see one of these in person....but from all the pictures I've seen....I am NOT impressed. There just seems to be something missing from this car. It looks too tall and too narrow.

      I guess they're going 'retro' on us....like the original California in form....but since the 80's....Ferraris have always been wide and low. This just does not look like a Ferrari to me. I just can't put my finger on it.

      Absolutely stunning is the California. May eventually prove hotter than the F430, no joke.

      why do they insist on showing it in red? it looks SO much better in grey.

      Ferrari's own Jaguar X-Type.
