Last year, Ferrari introduced five new cars – a very busy year for the Italian sports car manufacturer with the release of the 912 GTS, F8 Tributo, Roma, SF90 Stradale and the F8 Spider. The prancing horse brand isn’t set to rest up in 2020 either, even in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, they are still expecting to bring another two models to market.
This was announced by Enrico Galliera, Ferrari’s Chief Marketing & Commercial Officer, during an interview recently with Autocar.
Now don’t get too excited as Enrico, being the excellent Marketing and Commercial Officer that he is, refused to disclose the identities of the two new models – however, he did reveal that they would allow Ferrari to reach markets previously untapped by the Italian car manufacturer. This most likely means that the new cars will be additions to the range rather than brand new models.
Galliera said during the interview regarding the future of Ferrari:
“Potentially every segment is of interest to us, with the caveat that Ferrari is in the luxury sports car market. We can enter every market in which we can deliver a car that meets our position as a luxury car firm. We have certain limitations connected to the [sportiness] of the car: Ferrari is a sports car manufacturer.”
While Ferrari has a number of announced projects in the works, it is unlikely that any of these will be included in the 2020 schedule. For example, Ferrari’s much anticipated SUV – the Purosangue, is slated for a 2022 release. Also, a successor to the LaFerrari is set to be released after the SUV and the long-awaited Dino revival is not likely to see the light of day for some years yet.
However, thanks to FerrariChat forums earlier this week and a particular user known as ‘maha‘, we do have some evidence that one of the new models could be the SF90 Stradale Spider as explained by their spy shots from early last week.
Sadly, your guess is as good as ours when it comes to the second model, but from what the rumour mill is telling us, it could be a hybrid to slot underneath the SF90.
We will have to wait and see as to what the new additions to Ferrari’s already impressive lineup will entail – stay tuned to Grand Tour Nation for updates.♦ Follow Grand Tour Nation on Google News
