    I had one of the very earliest 1989 cars (LHD) with rear battery then a number of later variants. Much as with 1994 2.7 and later 5.2 versions of the 355 there really was no noticeable difference that I can recall (other than the early 355 having a much nicer non-airbag steering wheel).

    At this age it's all about history and maintenance as several have said above.

    By any modern objective standard the handling is ancient (but a good thing for the raw feel) and going for a front battery version will not transform the handling into something like a carbon tub McLaren

    I'd agree with that, although I would say the handling of my car was transformed with proper Geo setup, new rubber and getting that lump of an OEM exhaust off the tail of the car and replacing it for a far lighter Sports exhaust. Even I noticed the difference and that's saying something
