    Love the response of the photographer. I was thinking that Tesla may consider using custom manufacturing of the body panels to allow high end customers to design the look of the car using a 3-D cad program that customers could interact with. Another option is to ask Open AI to design various body styles with separate Aston Martin, McLaren F-1, Ferrari 308 GT Lotus Esprit and Porsche 911 Turbo (going to miss this design now that it is obsolete) influences or other influences that would be attractive to different customers. High end customers are very finicky about the look of their car. Hence so many different high end sports cars. Never understood the attraction to Maserati though. Must be the interior.

    Wish me luck. I am going to need it over the next few days.

    Saw that and was hoping for a better video. I think a drone video over the track would be nice.

    I think Maserati is just simple elegance.
    Perhaps you imagine they make too many of them for too many years.
    I'd call it timeless - timeless elegance.

    Ferrari Engines so also known as the Ferrari for the ordinary man.
