Most likely has the puerto rico flag hanging from the rear view mirror.

So, Ferraris had headlight motor troubles, too?

1986 SE Aero coupe.

3.4 DOHC swap is complete and running, now just have to finish the rest of the car...

Ya know, take away the Ferrari emblems and the rake sail panels and I actually like it. It appears to be well cared for, and I accept it for the bastard it is.

I don't care for the look, but it appears to be high quality. It's got better fit and finish than most Fauxerris.

There used to be a place in Redlands Ca. that did Fiero kits. I remember seeing several like the one in this post sitting outside the shop they built them in. From what I could tell, they did Testarossas like this one and Countaches, or at least that's all I ever saw sitting outside the shop. They actually looked like they did good work. This one reminds me of the ones I saw out there.

Yeah. It looks less Fiero-ish to most people now.

I don't like the "cheese slicer" scoops.
Not on a Ferrari (never cared for the 'rosa), and even less on a Fiero.

It's not "horrible"...

I'd probably not buy it, but as said before, the work looks good on it.

I'm not a fan of faking another brand. Own the car you bought!

But it does look nice, and I bet it fools many women. Isn't that all that matters?

Kidding!

Kudos to the owner - not a bit of road rash on that low hanging front air dam / splitter. I'd have that thing all rashed up in no time.

Licensed and certified by Ferrari? 2200lbs? 270HP with no pics of engine mods? It definitely doesn't get any more authentic.

While I think the work done is above par, I don't think it changed the overall look enough to justify the work. It still looks like a Fiero GT to me. At one time I was thinking of putting on the Pisa ZR-2 ( Corvette ) kit. I finally came to the same conclusion about that one as well. Looks too similar to a stock Formula to be worth the investment (for me to have done the work).

Would I drive either car? Yes but I would remove all the Ferrari badging. I might badge it as a Fiero GTX or something like that. GT-Z maybe?
