Would you rather have a Performante or Speciale, and why? Ignoring the difference in price, it seems a tough choice. The Performante is probably the more exotic looking car. Arguably, the engine sound is better, and it has incredible levels of performance (e.g. 'Ring time). It is also a lot of fun to drive. The Speciale is lighter weight, probably handles better in most conditions, and feels more nimble. It has better visibility for most drivers, and more luggage space. It is hard to say it is a "practical" car, but it is more practical than the Performante. The Speciale's steering is light but very precise, and probably superior to the steering in the Performante. The Speciale allows the driver to select the suspension setting separately from the other settings (i.e. "bumpy road" mode) whereas the Performante groups settings together (i.e. Strada, Sport, Corsa). Braking is excellent in both cars. So, overall, perhaps the Speciale is the "better" car? But, including price, makes the comparison more difficult. The Performante is less expensive. But, on the other hand, which one will maintain its value the best over time? I look forward to your thoughts on this ... Thank you!
