Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and Ferrari FF interior comparison

Ferrari has released new images of the FF in the desert along with some interior photos. The Ferrari FF is less than an inch longer than the 612 Scaglietti and from the photos, it looks like they offer similar front and rear space.

Video: 2012 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti testing

The next-generation 612 Scaglietti codenamed F151 should debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show as a 2012 model. It is a part of Ferrari’s plan to offer one all-new or revised model every year. The 612 is Ferrari’s current true 2+2 model that can sit four adults relatively comfortably. The next-generation 612 should still seat four, but will benefit from a more-powerful engine, less weight to move, and the lightning-fast shifts of a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Below is video of what is believed to be the next 612 Scaglietti testing on Ferrari’s Fiorano track.

Ferrari talks about model lineup, wait times

Ferrari told Motor Trend that it plans to introduce a new model every year—a move that follows what Lamborghini announced a year and a half ago—but still retain a lineup of four models, which equates to each model having a four-year model cycle. To accomplish this goal without introducing an all-new vehicle every four years, Ferrari wants to offer refreshed or “Modificato” facelifts (like the California M scheduled for 2013) along with its normal array of Spyders and track cars.

The company plans to continue to offer two “versatile” models like the 612 Scaligetti and the California and two performance models like the 458 Italia and 599 GTB but may widen the difference between its models in the future. It also wants to introduce a new supercar in the same vein as the Ferrari Enzo, F50, et cetera every ten years or so.

Ferrari also mentioned that hybrids are in its future but won’t be ready for mass production for at least another five years and that Ferrari is only looking at the technology because government regulations are placing demands on the company to meet certain CO2 and fuel consumption guidelines.

Another item on Ferrari’s to-do list is to cut the wait time for its vehicles to less than one year. Currently people interested in owning a new Ferrari may have to wait up to two years to take delivery of their cars. In order to cut wait times Ferrari hopes to build its cars faster, but not necessarily build more of them.

Ferrari and Maserati future models revealed

Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne announced yesterday the product plan for the Ferrari and Maserati lineups up to 2014. The future Ferrari models include the 458 Italia Spider and new 612 Scaglietti (code: F151)—which may also offer the hybrid technology first shown in the 599 Hybrid concept—for 2011, special-edition series Enzo and an all-new 599 Fiorano (code: F152) for 2012, and a 458 Scuderia and a makeover for the California in 2013 (code: California M).

The future for Maserati is less robust. It plans to offer only two new models in the next four years. One unnamed model will bring the brand downscale and is designed to compete directly against the Mercedes-Benz E63, BMW M5, and Audi S6. The other model will replace the Quattroporte as the marque’s four-door sport sedan and cost a bit less than the car’s current base price of $119,000.

Ferrari CEO confirms upcoming models

In an interview with Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa, GoAuto was told what we can anticipate from the exotic-car brand in the future. He confirmed that a 458 Italia Spider will go on sale next year, a 599 Hybrid will be unveiled at Geneva—something chairman Luca di Montezemolo has already told us, that a lighter and more-powerful 599 GTB Fiorano GTO is on the way but a 458 Italia “Scuderia” is not currently in the works, and that an Enzo replacement will be making its debut soon as a left-hand-drive-only supercar.  

Felisa also went into detail on the how hybrid technology will integrate into the Ferrari model line:

“The test mule has been running for a year now and it will reduce fuel consumption and emissions by up to 25 percent. We will present the new concept of the hybrid at Geneva. It will be based on the 599, but that doesn’t mean it will debut on that model. We have a plan to introduce new technology on our cars that will reduce consumption and emissions. The next step is to apply the technology on Ferrari cars.

The technology is not ready. The suppliers are not ready. Everything is underdeveloped. There is a lot of work to so. It is not for tomorrow. We haven’t decided when it will be introduced. It will be around that period 2015, but not before five years. The new hybrid technology can be applied to all Maranello’s sports cars, including those that are front- or mid-engined or fitted with V8- or V12-engines. If we move on the hybrid I think the technology is applicable on all our models.

The first production fuel-saving technology will debut on the California in 2011. If you couple direct-injection with other technology a fuel consumption and emissions reduction of up to 15 per cent is possible. Then there is cylinder deactivation, stop-start, electric motors for certain functions, we will launch the first of these on the California next year.”
