    I agree, that is definitely not a SF90 Spider, according to some on here who have seen the car, it is more attractive than an SF90. I wish they would show the damn car already.

    The pictures above seem to show only one car that’s yellow? What pictures are you referring to?

    Who knows you might be correct as it appears that the 812VS will be unveiled as both coupe and aperta, maybe the LB will be the same and Ferrari will continue with this trend.

    I was thinking about the same thing, both versions announced together.

    By doing that Ferrari gives the chance to the clients to chose between the coupé and the spider, instead of « forcing » the clients to first buy the coupé and then buy the spider when it is released 1-2 years after the coupé.

    A company that cannot satisfy and please their clients would already be out of business, so I guess Ferrari must have done something right in all these decades (and still does). That being said, I think the idea of unveiling both models, coupè and spider at the same time, is the best way to go.

    Any way, I can't wait to see the LB. I've heard it looks even better than the SF90..and It will certainly deliver excellent performance in its range.

    And, then there's Ferrari's Wall Street customers (RACE). There is a symbiotic relationship between success at selling cars and stock price. If the stock price is high and on the up (it is), then they are clearly satisfying enough customers. Customers not only includes buyers of cars, but buyers of stock. Wall Street says Ferrari is winning.

    Can this v6 model be related to Maseratti’s MC20?

    From what I understand, not really - Ferrari and Maserati are in theory unrelated now, since Ferrari is an independent company and Maserati is part of Fiat (or now, Stellantis).
    Besides, the Maserati V6 is 90° while the Ferrari V6 is rumoured to be a 120° V - there are no real reason for Ferrari and Maserati to share any elements of design (they may address overlapping markets, but so do Porsche and McLaren).

    I don't think share price and customer satisfaction are necessarily related.

    My guess is no but there is some F1 technology that they will share, probably in the pre-combustion area.

    To my knowledge the MC-20 will never be a hybrid like Little Brother but it will be all electric at some point in the future.

    The MC-20 also uses the Tremec DCT (probably very similar to the Corvette C8) but my guess is Little Brother will not.

    As I said, only enough customers need to be satisfied - be they car buyers and/or shareholders. And, they are necessarily related. It is an equation which cannot be altered. If you can't sustainably sell cars, investors won't buy your stock because it won't perform. If you own RACE, and you've been paying attention to its upwardly mobile price, you will see for yourself how it has played out - in a most positive way.

    FWIW, if you haven't had a good customer experience, that does not reflect the broader sentiment, especially for shareholders, who see the company as a success. Stock price tells the story.
