No doubt, Ferrari will find the right way to make this type of "inevitable" (high revenue margins) car without compromising the Prancing Horse's halo.
Reportedly, the Ferrari SUV will feature rear suicide doors and no C pillar. It will be also based on the exclusive GT4C platform. Needless to say, thanks to this special backbone, the SUV Ferrari will easily overcome any other "similar" car on the market. But this is no surprise, it's a Ferrari after all.
But there's two things that can go wrong with Maranello's SUV.
There are two Ferrari models that will probably be fatally "impacted" by the birth of the SUV.
First of all, the gorgeous GT4C Lusso. The shooting brake, four-seater Ferrari .
[Available with the rear wheel drive, V8 Turbo or V12 and the most sporty 4wd sport available on Earth (a Ferrari Patent)].
Customers of this masterpiece will inevitably hear and be attracted by the Ferrari SUV sirens.
The second Ferrari model potentially influenced by the SUV is the upcoming Ferrari Dino. This small "driver's Ferrari" should be powered by a central-rear, hybrid V-6 power unit and is supposed to be much more sport oriented than a gran turismo model like Ferrari Portofino.
The Ferrari Dino was as per Ferrari officials "a matter of when instead of if". But now, according to Nicola Boari, Ferrari's Chief Marketing Manager, "the Dino is still is a debate topic".
The small Ferrari Dino should be (with Nicola Boari's words) "compact, agile and fun to drive".
Did the Ferrari SUV overtake the Ferrari Dino in the production line?
We hope not.
