the wheels look like supersized Z4 or TRC's.

it might be only in my head, but the body reminds me a little of the GTR

Well the overall body lines are about right for that Ferrari...its Ferrari inspired...but not a Ferrari. The big departure is in the front end grills being completely different.

Ferrari is extraordinarily protective of their brand. If PF wanted to copy the design and call it a Ferrari, it would cost you $50 each to buy one.

That's right. And that's why you don't see the Vette. GM wants there cut too. It's modelled after the big RED machine to a point. Don't worry about it we got a new WGT to race!

Lonny and Bullfrog;

BINGO! That's the business climate we now live in. It sucks. It wasn't like this 10 years ago.

It's also why Autographics stopped making those cool decals and went out of business. Believe it or not, the Union Pacific railroad wants a cut of every model train painted to look like a UP piece of equipment, even rolling stock that hasn't been used in 50 years or more.
