    Re: New entry level Ferrari coming?

     Sounds very interesting thanks RC.  Perhaps the introduction of an entry level Ferrari in 2012 will fulfill the Mayan calendar prediction after all?

    Re: New entry level Ferrari coming?

    Many "exclusive" car manufactures are planning for the future and apparently not all of them are trusting that sales will be always good. They know they need cheaper models for bad times, Ferrari for example may sell well to China and other regions but in Germany, the golden times seem to be over.

    This is actually the next Ferrari supercar...if they think they can stay independent and without financial support from Fiat. Smiley Smiley

     RC, Ferrari is indeed financially independent and makes high profits for many years now.

    Fiat owns 90% of Ferrari...nothing more to say. Smiley

    No matter how well Ferrari is doing, Fiat will be always a major issue for them.

    Re: New entry level Ferrari coming?

    Fiat is a very good parent to Ferrari. Willing to foot the bill if things go wrong but letting their beloved offspring to do whatever it wishes without any element of control. What seems to be the problem?

    A parent who doesn't show the kid how to do things right and a parent who takes money from the kid instead of the other way around, isn't really my kind of parent. Smiley

    What is the right thing to do then? Make loads of SUVs and lose the italieness of the Ferrari soul?

    No but Ferrari needs to adapt, they need to build more cars to be profitable in the future.

    Or they could just raise prices but I don't think this would work since the competition got stronger and stronger. It doesn't get easier for them.

    I actually have a list of various future models from Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo and Lancia and it is very interesting where they plan to go. In my opinion, this is the right way but I'm not sure all hardcore Ferrari lovers will be OK with that. Porsche went a similar way with the Cayenne and Panamera and look...the Cayenne is actually the best selling Porsche worldwide. I don't say this is OK but it helps to save the sports car model range.

    To be honest...the Cayenne is pretty impressive, especially the Turbo, so I can't see anything bad in that as long as Porsche also delivers first class sports cars.

    Re: New entry level Ferrari coming?

    The official plans, revealed last year to the FIAT shareholders meeting, underlined a strategy of two model lines (supersports cars and GT cars), plus the neccessary special, halo model every now and then. Till now they have been following that plan with the 458, 599 and GTO on the one hand and with the California and the FF on the other. Time will tell.

    The V6 bi-turbo engine needs to be used for a model, it will be used in other brands too.
