It’s not exactly Ferrari Lite, but the fabled Italian sports car brand’s latest model, the California, is just in time for the pinched economy. For one thing, it’s more understated, smaller and lighter than the company’s other testosterone-fueled beasts, even if it can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds. And, if past Ferraris focused more on rpm, torque and horsepower, the California takes comfort equally into account, from its retro feeling, based on the brand’s 1957 California 250, to a roomier interior with handcrafted leather seats and a sophisticated gearbox with automatic or manual options.
