Porsche 911 Turbo S

The least-interesting thing we can say about Ferrari’s new 488 Spider is that it’s little more than a 488GTB with a retractable hardtop. Nor is the alfresco Ferrari much of a surprise—we’d be more shocked if Ferrari had announced the 488GTB would stay a fixed-roof coupe only. Everything else about the 488 Spider (no GTB in its name), however, is supremely interesting and exciting.

Boring, of course, is a difficult achievement for any lithe, lightweight Italian supercar motivated by a 661-hp, twin-turbocharged, mid-mounted V-8 engine. Slathering an extra layer of wow over the 488GTB’s already wow-inducing aura is the 488 Spider’s retractable roof, which grants access to that wailing exhaust note and the sun, stars, and wind.
