I have just seen the latest release from Ferrari on their new California. They ultimate addition to the web promises to let you feel their soon-to-be-unveiled convertible-coupé sports car, designed by Pininfarina. Over the two minutes of the broadcasting, I did not feel anything but the strange perception I am getting too old to fully appreciate what the new technology is offering to us. How is it possible that I feel no emotions, no excitement, no more curiosity? I must be positively conservative enough to need to actually see the car, hear its sound, feels its (lack of?) vibrations, and drive it to feel something. Is this too bad? Am I surpassed and obsolete? Have a look for yourself and let me know what do you think.
