Saw a wrecked Ferrari California on my route to work

On my way to office. 50km/h straight road. Guess Summer tires and itch in the right foot.

Not a V12, just an ugly California.

There are too many Ferrari Californias out there. They're basically a dealer markup you get to drive for a few years before having the high honor of being allowed to buy the Ferrari you actually wanted in the first place.

If it had to happen to any Ferrari, I'm glad it was this one.

Must have happened just before I passed. Just leaving it with the door open makes me think it was stolen. Complete bummer for the owner regardless. Fighting insurance companies is not fun.

Never understood the hate for the California. Is it simply because it's the cheapest model?

They are the "poor" mans Ferrari. I will say that I don't find them particularly good looking either.

It's just ugly. Four seat hard top convertibles are terrible, and this isn't a good one at that. It's the modern day Mondial.

That was a good read. I can't believe McLaren crashed a single 675LT 12 times and kept rebuilding around the carbon tub with no damage taken

I honestly had no idea they were so safe.
