Make no mistake: the new 2017 Ferrari California T is all Ferrari, with a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged engine that makes 553 horsepower and gets from 0-60 mph in about 3.5 seconds. But it’s also the user-friendly Ferrari in Italian automaker’s lineup.
Settle in the low-slung cockpit’s elegantly spare front chairs, says The Car Connection, and you can see how far Ferrari has come from its purist roots. Love it or not, there’s an honest to God touchscreen in here and it works pretty well for audio functions. Stream Bluetooth, dial in some Beach Boys via the USB port, whatever you want.
As a hardtop convertible, the California T’s cabin merges the best of the roadster and coupe worlds, with a well-built, sturdy feel to the interior that hasn’t always been typical of Ferrari. Passenger room is good up front, but the plus-two rear seats are best reserved for children or extra gear. There’s a new seat design with more bolstering, and while we’ll say the trunk is useful for a carefully packed weekend away, it’s hardly spacious. The folding hardtop operates smoothly and quickly, opening and closing in about 15 seconds.
