    I don't know if this interests any local members, but http://cars.coffee will hold on July 7th, a meeting in Geneva. Seems you need to register and hand over some cash, but I believe it will include food, drinks, and some other stuff for the participants. More info here if any owners wish to sign up, I've yet to make up my mind (as I'm not sure if they consider a Modena as prestigious enough): http://cars.coffee/en/find-events/cars-and-coffee-geneva-2018

    Also, I know it's short notice, as today is a monthly car meetup once again at the Colovray stadium parking in Nyon. I'll be there in about an hour...

    Wonderful to see owners enjoying their Ferrari models with nice weather. The GTC/4 has always lived in the shadow of the Daytona but at least they did so with power steering! Thank you for sharing these images Marcel.

    Surprise in the sense that I was expecting the traditional dealers from Zürich/Zug area to take over the Ferrari representation in Zug. Auto Pierre Sudan seemed a bit weird to me. First, the premises are old and somewhat barely ideal to sell Kia cars, not a super luxury brand. Second, every time I pass by, parked outside the shop, there are a ton of brand new Quattroportes and Ghiblis covered in dust.

    Since Kanton Zug probably has the highest Ferrari per capita in CH, I am expecting Kessel to build an amazing showroom very soon.

    Zug is not the canton with the highest Ferrari per capita in Switzerland. It is Basel-Stadt.
    Re a Sudan successor you must know that not just every traditional car dealer from Zürich/Zug area could apply. Three official F dealers in Switzerland were asked and two refused.
    As for unsold Maseratis you must know that Swiss dealers lose more than 1'000 CHF on every single new Maserati sold! Nobody wants them and you cannot make any profit with them. That's also why several significant dealers have given up their contracts, in order to avoid losing more money.

    Just out of curiosity, why would Basel city have the highest number of Ferrari's per capita? I know of a few large companies based thereabouts (worked for a few of them in my role), but didn't think it'd be the Swiss hub for F-cars?

    I was out walking today at around noon, and just past the Schilliger Garden Center in the town of Gland, I saw a gunmetal matte colored F12 with a red 1000 Miglia sticker on the front, and I think it was a number 558 in a white round sticker on both sides of the car. Anyone know what that was about? Seems the driver was checking something on his phone or nav, and then sped off in the direction of Lausanne...

    Tribute to 1000 Miglia - 558 was not an F12 but a Speciale Aperta, 568 was an F12 and 588 was an 812SF

    And only a few kms away from that event is Raduno Classico #8 in Andelfingen (Sunday).
    This is for all those that don't travel to Como-Cernobbio for the Villa d'Este Concours (25-27 May 2018).

    Yesterday Sunday, 27 May 2018, at Dachsen (Rheinfall), near Schaffhausen, Switzerland, around 55 Ferraris participated in the Foitek organised event.
    Unfortunately once again some poor "GTO Replica" was displayed and the majority of the spectators were simply fooled.
    Some impressions.

    Yes, that’s the 330 GTO of Fredy Lienhard from Autobau. What is wrong with this car, Marcel?

    It is a fake. Not a GTO. Zero connection to a genuine GTO.
