    Today I was walking in the center of Rome and I met a Ferrari employee that was showing the new Ferrari California. I asked him what is the price of the new Ferrari California. He answered 220.000 euros. :scared:
    Then, since I am intersted in environmental matters, I asked him if the new Ferrari California has the start/stop device (a device to stop automatically the engine at the traffic light). He answered no. :scared:
    So I said: Thank you but I am not interested and went away. While I was leaving the Ferrari employee told me: But if you want you can test drive the Ferrari California for fifteen minutes at a price of 120 euros. :scared:

    I hope the test drive is free if you're actually from California! Otherwise I'd like royalties to buy some solar panels :)

    My interest in owning/driving/maintaining a Ferrari has nearly been reduced to zero after years of having posters on my walls as a kid. Thank you Elon! I await the next Roadster!

    I often drive through a small shopping area of Malibu on my way to LA (residents know where I mean, where the Library is). Seems there is always 2 or 3 Ferraris. They seem so archaic. Suddenly, I would be embarrassed to own one, with all that noise they make. After owning a Model S, if it has a tailpipe, I am so not interested! Closest thing to a Ferrari that would not shame me is the Fiat 500E.

    I've always been uninterested in the owning/maintaining part.

    I still want to try out the driving part -- but only in a brief loaner-type situation.

    Me trying out the driving part, not some other person. ;) Thanks for the offer though.
