In-the-know: Plans for Upcoming Models
Ferrari is famously secretive about its future plans, so it's no surprise that the details of the four new models are being kept under wraps. Nevertheless, there are a few hints to go by, thanks to paparazzi photos and spy reports.
One of the four models is expected to be a convertible version of the Roma, which could potentially replace the long-standing Portofino M model or sit below it. Another model, a tight mule based on the Roma, has been seen with a V12 engine and is rumored to be the successor to the 812 Superfast.
A potentially more powerful SF90 Stradale was also spotted last November, hiding an extended body, which could lead to the launch of a "Versione Speciale" or something similar. The fourth announced model is a mystery, but rumors suggest it could be an ultra-exclusive model for the Icona series, arriving after the Monza SP1/SP2 and Daytona SP3 models.
Motor1.com writes they wouldn't rule out model for the Icona series: "We wouldn't rule out another ultra-exclusive model for the Icona series to follow up on the Monza SP1/SP2 and the Daytona SP3. Ferrari has been coming out with more limited-run cars and one-off projects, so perhaps something special is coming in 2023." Over the period of 2023 to 2026, Ferrari has promised to launch as many as 15 models, including its first fully electric car and a hypercar.
In 2022, the high-performance SUV, Purosangue, is expected to launch, but it is not among the four models announced in the financial report. By 2026, Ferrari aims to have a vehicle lineup that consists of 60 per cent hybrid and all-electric vehicles, with the other 40 per cent being internal combustion-powered models.
Last year, Ferrari sold 13,221 cars and distributed a bonus of 13,500 euros to its employees, a testament to the company's success.
