I consider everything newer than the 308 a Fiat It even says FIAT on the nose of the F1 cars.

Ferraris were always about racing and my favorite Ferraris are the 156 Shark nose, 158 Formula 1, then the P3/P4, 312PB, and I like the 275 LM a lot, too.

For street Ferraris, I like the 275 GTB and the 246 Dino. If I were to go modern Ferrari, I would probably go flat 12 Testerossa.

Ferrari technology lagged behind historically but they have caught up. I still like the sometimes unconventional approach of Porsche best.

I saw that Speedvision show where they ran a 997 Turbo and an F430 up and doewn Mulholland past the rock store and timed the runs. These were professional drivers- Townsend Bell. The Porsche won. It even beat the Lotus.

This thread brings to mind the battles in the 1960s between Porsche and Ferrari with 906,908,917 vs. Ferrari Dino, 512, etc at the Targa, LeMans, Nurburgring, hillclimbing... And before that it was RS Spyders vs. GTOs
