Morale event at the Ferrari dealership

I live beside a Ferrari and Maserati dealership; this is the view out my window:


So when Jeff mentioned that he had a voucher for free Omaha steaks if he test drove a Maserati we decided to have a small morale event. This week the two of us took an hour off work and took one of their new Quattroporte Automatic’s for a ride (this dealer gets 35 a year.) It was very Entourage with Jeff driving and me riding shotgun. Sadly the pre-defined route was through a school zone so I don’t think we ever got above second. However we did find out some trivia:

  • The waiting list for a Ferrari here is 3-4 years
  • You can’t test drive any of their Ferrari’s. But you can trade it in if you don’t like it
  • There is an underground storage facility but it is very top secret. Apparently it houses A LOT of Ferraris for rich people whose garages are full
  • Ferrari’s don’t really depreciate
  • But you can get into an older one for $90k
  • Jeff says all their prices are inflated but that makes sense in case they get a lotto winner walking in
  • They’re considering opening a Bellevue location
  • Most of their inventory is on Craigslist

How much longer until that IPO? Apparently with a 3-4 year waiting list we should reserve ours now. Turns out you don’t need to pay a deposit until four months before it ships.

The funny thing is that we took the bus back to the office. Ah, to dream.

    Morale event? Glad to see that you haven’t lost your Micro-speak ;-)

    Is it true that Neons, like the Ferrari never depreciate, just self-destruct.

    Nice moral event. That must’ve felt like a long bus ride back to the office!

    $345k for a used F430 Spider?! That’s a tad bit of a mark up.
