In the future could you add a feature on the curb weight line that's like curb weight equals 1,499-1,577kg
Corvette C7 Stingray Z51 example

Changed. In future it will be best to show a weight range for curb weight. Like 1799 - 1850 kg. Just like it is supported for fuel consumption see Aventador SV page

This thing is realy fast for that kind of car.

In real life it could even beat 458 Italia in roll drag race.

I wouldnt mind seeing that, But most likely they will make another version of this car, And the F12, They have so far with the other models, Dont see why they wouldnt now.


User avatar

dddd  4y ago

I also wouldnt mind to see more V12 Ferrari models.

2 models more would be perfect.

First - the hardcore, lighter and more powerful version of F12 - it would be nice but it is not a must.

A must in my opinion is mid engined V12 car. Imagine a 1500 kgs mid engined car with F12's engine.

But it could be a competitor of 458 then so i dont think it will happen.


User avatar

BR2+  4y ago

Im sure there will be a test of the 2 in the future seeing as there isnt much competition for this in its own segment, Including price and power figures. But i dont see this thing in any speed figure matching a Turbo S, Or even Turbo, Could, But i dont think it will.

@BR
I agree that Porsche would be faster even without all-wheel drive. I think I posted reason why below. Acceleration from 0 to 200 km/h in a Porsche for ~ 1 second faster (0.5 seconds from 0 to 100 due to AWD, and 0.5 seconds from 100 to 200 due to the lower weight and torque advantage on 1st-3rd gears, - 750 Nm against 600 Nm). I suppose that the acceleration from 200 to 300 km/h and the top speed would be about the same, which could be a proof of roughly equal power.

We will prolly find out soon enough, Tat is if they will let them...You know how they get..


User avatar

dddd  4y ago

@BR2+ i know that most ppl know but 196ss said that California T and 991 Turbo S have the same powers figures.

On paper yest but not on dyno (crank power).


User avatar

@Shaggy

....V8s are all you guys make-_- I think we have enough of those today, Or atleast they could make some big block V8s and some small V8s, Like more 7.0L+ V8s, Or V8s under 3.0L, That would be nice.

@ddd

Whenever Ferrari lists a cars weight...Its always off what they say, Practically like every other manufaktur, The weight listed here is dry, The actual weight as advertised is 1729Kg, Which in reality is more like 50kg more, But yes also depending on specification, But not many cars will have a Huge load difference, Depending on what one thinks is huge.

We also no that the Turbo puts out more power then claimed, You dont have to keep reminding us that, We have known that for years.

@196

Even if the Turbo had Rwd, It would still win, By less, But would still go, But faster times with the car will come.


User avatar

dddd  4y ago

@196ss 991 turbo S is much faster than California T because :

  • Porsche has for real more power than it is claimed (10-15 % more).

Ferrari does not lie about weight. Ferrari advertises the weight (curb and dry) of car with standard level of equipment (and even with lightening options in some cases). It is written on Ferraris dealers sites.

It is obvious that you can make car heavier if you take many luxurious/comfort options.

This car on paper has very similar specs with 991 Turbo S Cabrio: same power, same torque, similar claimed curb weight, both have very fast 7 speed DCT. But in reality Porsche is much faster for several reasons:
1) Turbo has AWD, - much better traction from the start.
2) Ferrari engineers restricted torque on 1-3 gears to only 600 NM, driver can use all engine abilities only at 7th gear. http://www.autoreview.ru/archive/2014/15-16/California/torgue-curves.jpg
3) Ferrari was lying about curb weight just as always, in reality it’s at least 100 kg more.


User avatar

Shaggy  4y ago

@BR2+: I think the best engines for high end European cars are V12s, I would like to see more American cars with V8s.


User avatar

BR2+  4y ago

Its very fast in every way no matter what Hp segment. If were going on Bhp numbers, Theres loads of competition, But add that with the included price, Then theres only One car that could be comparable, The Aston Martin AM310 Vanquish Convertible, Which happens to be in the same Bhp, Weight and price range.

@Shaggy

Yes i wouldnt mind more V12 cars from anyone, Its all V8s these days and im quite tired of that.


User avatar

Shaggy  4y ago

@BR2+: I think Ferrari needs more V12 powered cars in their lineup.


User avatar

dddd  4y ago

Obviously it is a very fast car but competition even in this segment is very hard.

Much cheaper cars like bmw M6 cabrio, Jaguar F-type R cabrio are only slightly slower than this.

Not saying about Porsche 991 Turbo cabrio which is faster.

But when compare this new California to previous model it is so much faster and better looking (and also much better handling from reviews that ive read).

In general the performance figures of that car are ok.


User avatar

BR2+  4y ago

....I think an 11.5s 1/4 mile is WELL above okay, maybe cars like the P1, And Aventador are making you think other cars are slow?...

@Shaggy

Yes, And there shouldnt have been one, However, Like ive been saying, Ferrari should stick to N/a, And maybe make a Strict series of V6 Turbo cars, Car companys are going off there traditions and roots, And i REALLY hate that, Like Bmw and MB.


User avatar

Shaggy  4y ago

Prior to this, there hasn't been a turbocharged Ferrari since the F40.


User avatar

dddd  4y ago

Yes the performance level for that kind of car is okay. Only "okay" but nothing above that.

It is a Ferrari. I expected a bit better performance : 0-200 in less than 11s (lets say in mid 10s) and 1/4 mile at low 11s.

But i guess that for this car even those figures are ok. It does not need to be faster...But it could be :) ...
