Lots and lots of great casting ideas for parts in case MPI would be reborn with new faces. But I was wondering what kind of sports car would take the place of the famous red Ferrari? I don't know much at all about sports cars. Does anyone have a cool car to drop into the role, and any pics to go with it? Thanks again all. :higgins:

As a big petrolhead, I approve this thread :D

It does not have to be a Ferrari or...?
Either way, I will post both Ferraris and other sports cars...
Just as a side note: I was only posting italian sport cabriolet versions, I can't imagine modern Magnum to be in some German or English machine :? However, there are a whole bunch of sport cars. To add, cars I searched for, in my opinion, should not be extreme like the Pagani, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta or Lamborghini Aventador and should not be "in your face" like modern Lambos... In 70s and 80s, 308 was the entry model for Ferrari, that is why I chose these 3, not so pricey models. (However, this Alfa is out of production and that time was the most powerful Alfa!. The Maserati is still in production and it is their top line product).

This thread could include also modern replacements for the old Audi 5000 and TCs VW van, too.

I have a difficult time straying from anything "traditional MPI" so I vote for the Ferrari...but if not, I like the idea of a Tesla for TM...

Great thread guys.

I can see the more senior Magnum driving daughter Lily's VW Beetle soft top. :magnum:

Ferrari concept 612GTO:

As listed above, this is just a "concept" but at this juncture, so is a movie or remake of the series.. :magnum: But just like some of the stories/scripts that have been suggested, it sure looks good on paper! :lol:

The last Ferrari exist only on sketches and computer. But it looks good, it evokes the late 50s and early 60s design... (which is mine favourite era :p).
If we are going to electric vehicles, go and check out Croatian pride and joy, Rimac Concept One. It has in its name Concept, but actually about 10 models were made and sent to customers throughout the world. It holds the world record as a fastest electric vehicle (305 km/h).

As a Audi replacement, I see A8, 7 series or S class. But I'm a fond of CLS class :)

I love Ferrari's, heck I love exotic cars of any make and model but the two Ferrari's that always give me goosebumps are the 308 (of course) and the Enzo....It screams every cliche in the book about the gentleman who drives one........

It has to be a Ferrari that's a given in my books!
At the moment I'm thinking a 458 Spider would be the best choice.
