Ferrari confirms six new models

Six of the best: Ferrari has unveiled plans for six new models.

Enzo replacement to head six new models from Ferrari by 2013

22 Apr 2010

FERRARI has revealed that a replacement for its Enzo hypercar will be among six new Prancing Horse models to be produced within the next three years or so.

Spider and Scuderia versions of the new 458, plus replacements for the 612 Scaglietti and 599 GTB Fiorano are also listed within the Fiat group’s latest restructuring plan, announced yesterday in Europe.

While Ferrari will this week unveil the long-anticipated GTO version of its 599 in Beijing, the Italian supercar brand’s next new model will be an all-new version of Ferrari’s range-topping, V12-powered 612 Scaglietti in the first half of next year.

Ferrari says the 612 replacement is being developed under the codename of F151, but the model’s production nameplate is as yet unknown.

Also now officially confirmed for release in 2011 – albeit in the second half, at least in Europe – is an open-top Spider variant of the upcoming 458 coupe.

After that, a redesigned version of Ferrari’s Enzo flagship, just 400 examples of which were produced between 2002 and 2004, is locked in for 2012. The top-shelf Ferrari is again expected to emerge with V12 power, but will remain a left-hand drive-only proposition for Europe and the US.

The same year, Ferrari will replace the 599 GTB with a model codenamed F152, before a facelifted version of the California convertible is launched in 2013 – the same year Ferrari will release a lighter-weight hard-core version of the 458, which has been confirmed to go by the Scuderia name of its 430 predecessor.

As with this year’s limited-edition 599 GTO and the new Enzo in 2012, Ferrari says the following year’s 458 Scuderia will specifically target high-end customers.

There has been no formal confirmation of Ferrari’s first production hybrid model, which was previewed by the 599 HY-KERS concept at last month’s Geneva motor show but is more likely to be based on the next-generation 612 range-topper.

Apart from committing to launching a new Ferrari model every year to “sustain turnover and reinforce brand”, the 2010-2014 Ferrari product plan and roadmap announced by Fiat at yesterday’s investor conference in Turin also includes the introduction of a facelifted ‘M’ version of each new model four years after its launch, which will continue for a further four years to “ensure a sustainable product life cycle”.

With the Enzo not counted as part of its full-time model range, Ferrari says it plans to broaden its customer base by increasing the differentiation between its current sportscar and grand tourer model line-up, which it says will continue to include just four core models: the “extreme” 458 and 599 supercars and the “versatile” 612 and California cruisers.

What’s coming from Ferrari:
612 replacement first half 2011
458 Spider second half 2011
Enzo replacement 2012
599 replacement 2012
California facelift 2013
458 Scuderia 2013
612 hybrid 2015
