California, the last Ferrari available with manual

Discussion in 'European Cars' started by lucky strike, Mar 22, 2010.

  1. The weight added by an airbag or ABS does not effect the difference in the feel of driving a car in such a way as auto vs manual does. I can't believe you're even drawing a comparison between the two, as they are in no way similar. A paddle shifter may make the car mircroseconds quicker in a straight line, but people over the age of 16 don't give a shit about that.

    Yes, it makes complete business sense for Ferrari to do this, but it still sucks.

    Shut up.
     
  2. "go buy yourself a dildo so you can shift it around while you get the sand out of your vagina."
     
  3. it makes it faster, but the main point is to keep hands on the steering wheel as a racing car, see 458, it has most buttons on the steering wheel
     
  4. when i drive a car i just wanna drive as fast as they do in the magazines and feel like i'm driving an f1 car.
     
  5. in 20 years the manual ones are going to be worth twice as much as the flappy paddle ones.

    fact.
     
  6.  
  7. also: while I understand it as a business move, its still sad.
     
  8. saying "technically" then going on to talk about something as subjective as looks makes you look like an idiot.
     
  9. technically they look better, if you want to get technical about it
     
  10. This.

    Makes perfect sense, but it suuuuuuuuucks.

    Back when I was super riceboi #1 I wanted to by a "gated" shifter for my Fireturd. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

  12. no...honestly it didn't
     
  13. if you are ferrari
    you make cars
    your clients don't buy certain kind of cars
    you stop producing that kind of cars
    aint this hard to grasp?
     
  14. I guess I'll have one of the older crappier Ferrari's then which looked nice and had a manual.
     
  15. maybe you love him so much you want him to eat a dick?
     
  16. I just love his shirts. Especially the long sleeve purle/pink one
     
  17. A lot of cry babies in this thread.
     
  18. Siriusly
     
  19. I know you want to do that, FAGGOT.
     
  20.  
  21. 20000 RPM

    So maybe there is a reason formula 1 cars don't use stick shifts? Ferrari is more concerned about putting their F1 technology on the road genius, because guess what, that's what Ferrari is: a formula 1 company that builds road cars too. STFU and GTFO.

    PandaBeat:

    Aren't you a GTR fanboi? Like major fanboi? Does it keep you up at night that it doesn't use a manual? Or does it drive you nuts that the Crapolet Corvette does? Go slit your wrists, or better yet, go buy a Fiat Panda manual so you can enjoy your sports car stick shift.

    headache:

    Oh, I'm sorry, you must have never driven a car that doesn't have electronic nannies. Talk to any true car enthusiast and that will be a bigger problem than not being able to put into any gear. I can understand if you don't have something that resembles a cock in your hand to play with, but car enthusiasts care more about weight, balance, handling, and overall driveability than playing with a stick. Want more proof? Go take a test drive with Porsche's new PDK transmission and get back to me...oh wait, maybe you should bring you stick shift dildo with you and wipe a few tears off to show your emo pain.
     
  22. oh shit, this guy is serious over here
