Introduction

What Car? says...

When Ferrari replaced the 458 Italia with the 488 GTB, the decision to switch from a naturally aspirated engine to a turbocharged unit to improve both performance and fuel economy was a controversial one.

Not because people were hoping for a car that was slower and dirtier, you understand, but because the 458 was almost universally regarded as one of the best Ferraris ever and it was feared such a significant change would lead to a car that was less exciting.
