    Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    ince the end of last year, Ferrari Dino prototypes have been making appearances with the bodies of the Ferrari F430 and more recently a shortened 599 GTB.

    In honor of the founder's son Alfredino "Dino" Ferrari who died of muscular dystrophy in 1956, the Dino brand name represented mid-engine rear-wheel-drive models with less than 12 cylinders which were produced by Ferrari between 1968 and 1976. Groomed to be the successor of Ferrari, Dino was credited for designing the first Ferrari built V6 engine which was first used in motorsports and then later produced in the Fiat Dino in 1966 to help Ferrari homologate the engine for use in Formula 2 racing. Then in 1968 Ferrari produced their own Dino 206 which was their first mid-engined vehicle. The Dino 206 is widely considered one of the best Ferrari's ever made.

    Now Ferrari is reviving the Dino name with their most "affordable" entry level 400hp V8 model which is expected to open Ferrari up to a whole new market. The Dino is rumored to be produced at the Maserati plant in Modena and is expected to start at EUR 100,000 with a potential 4000 units per year which doubles Ferrari's current production. The Dino is expected for 2009 launch with a spider version following.

    So this vehicle will have its engine mounted in the front?

    Yes, but it surely won't look like in the pics above.

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    Rossi - do you know anything more?

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    it will be a 2+2 and spider.

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    Now this would be a serious competitor to the 911, I just hope ferrari doesnt goes as crazy as Audi's R8 with its price range...

    Rossi do you have any more info??

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    So a mid-mounted car would be imposing on the F430?

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    I seem to recall reading an interview with Jean Todt where he specifically said that the Dino would not be built.

    thats what I remember, reading that in the boards

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    what Jean and Luca said was that FERRARI will not build a lower-end entry-level car, but the Dino always carried a "Dino" badge on the hood

    Such a car will allow Ferrari to double their production, and introduce a car which is priced along side the 997TT and the AMV8, keeping in mind that Ferrari always had their entry-level car in that price bracket (308, Mondial, etc.)

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    The car will be produced, since it's currently under heavy design, but with no ferrari name on it.
    It will be just Dino.
    This is what will happen.

    Cheers guys

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    Ferrari are still undecided as to whether they will go ahead with the "Dino".

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    This is what Porsche should have produced as the panamera coupe (928 successor) just with more power. If it looks like these drawings and sounds like the video it will be a big seller.

    With this and the AM v8 P is losing a lot of market share. Looks like P is giving up the high performance niche builder rep and stepping down to audi/bmw luxury maker status.

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    Very poor renderings I think, just a photoshopped 599 with different body features.

    The car is coming -- and AFAIK it'll be branded as a Ferrari.

    Here are some new prototype pictures

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    Actually - I can see elements of the above renderings in that new camoflaged car. The large hood is for sure because its a Coupe/Cabrio!

    I like this car more and more. And whatever they are going to name it, it will be a small Ferrari!

    That's what I heard too. Ferrari is currently extremely busy in finishing the production site for the California GT. I've heard it will be built in Maranello and not at the Maserati plant in Modena.

    This model will become the new entry Ferrari, but it won't be cheap by no means. It will be suited for those drivers, who want a Ferrari, but don't want do without all those comfort goodies.

    Car will be presented next year, prior to the F430 successor. The latter will be replaced by a new model in the first half of 2009. Car will have a V8 with a mild power increase but will loose weight in comparison to the current model. The new midengined sportscar will become more hardcore than the F430, as the comfort sector will be represented by the new Dino.

    All info from the Frankfurt motor show.

    Re: Ferrari New 2009 Dino Renderings

    I have tried to order the "new" car from 2 dealers. Both have told me the same story i.e. Ferrari are as yet undecided as to whether they will go ahead with production BUT it could come as a Maserati. In any event it won't arrive before 2009 (whether as a F or M).
