Recommended Posts

Here is a picture of a guys 89 SE on Ferrari chat and I noticed my 89 SE does not have it, should it?

Greg, i think that bottom lip was standard from N/a onwards. I know that James (Tentenths) told me that his came off and he hadn't replaced it as yet. On the later models it became even more pronounced.

When you say N/A onwards, what do you mean?

the term N/A wasn't used until a specific time.

Many of us use the term when refering to an S3 against it's stable mate Turbo, but technically the S1 S2, S3 etc were just that, not S3N/A etc.

Lotusepritworld should give you the further info on the models and their correct names.

The rubber lip was only on later SE's, something like 91/92 onwards. I think the info is on LEW somewhere.

for sure it was NOT on my 1990 SE (European model)

When we talk about N/A it's normally referring to the Stevens model from about 88 onwards. It's just a generic term we use as the rest are Turbo, SE, S4 etc.
