2.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelming, June 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ferrari Testarossa, 512 TR, & F512 M Buyer's Guide (Digital)
This guide is very short, about 12 pages, divided pretty much evenly between the three models listed in the title. My complaint is that most of the information is very general, despite the fact that most people in the market for a ferrari are probably reasonably knowledgeable about the models' differences and advantages. Wikipedia has more detail on the models themselves, and where this guide *could* have succeeded, in providing buying advice (common problems/defect in models, cost of common repairs, spotting non-stock alterations), it instead provides general market platitudes: "personal (vs. dealer) sales are cheaper, but riskier". My primary disappointment is that there is definitely a market for a guide like this, since these cars are increasingly valuable and pretty common (in comparison to vintage ferraris), whereas this was more of an introduction to the cars themselves.

One nice feature of the document is a chart comparing about two dozen recent ferrari models in terms of
Appreciation Potential, # Produced (High to Low), Engine Sound, Useability, and Maintenance Cost, though the comparisons are fairly qualitative in nature.

Each chapter is about a page or two:
Introduction & Model Information 5 Driving Impressions
Pros & Cons
Maintenance & Reliability
Buying Tips
Ownership Expectations
Purchasing Options
Model Chart

The authors definitely come across as knowledgeable but most of the information here is too basic to really assist legitimate buyer, who already knows a lot probably. Even for the cheap price I do now recommend.
