Ferrari is undergoing transformation these days, as the electrified future is slowly becoming a reality beyond the LaFerrari.
The Prancing Horse is also interested (well, actually it’s an on and off idea, depending on whom and when you ask) in making an SUV to rival the likes of the Lamborghini Urus. But it would make sense in these times we live in, especially to number crunchers – even if not everyone likes the idea of a full-blown crossover from Ferrari.
What would not make any kind of sense in the real world, would be a small (or compact) hatchback from Maranello. Then again, a few years ago, the same people who’d bash this idea (…or render), would say the same to anyone claiming that Aston Martin itself would offer a city car made out of a Toyota…
But on the internet, it only takes a leap of fantasy peppered with some creativity and free time to render the undoable.
Industrial designer Taekang Lee took a digital stab at creating a hatchback Ferrari. The exotic compact gets a GTC4Lusso infusion at the front together with all of Ferrari’s design cues compressed in a footprint of a compact model. It’s busy, that’s for certain.
The artist also drew up a rough sketch of racing version of the Ferrari compact project, complete with excessive aero agenda.
What could power such a model? The twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 engine used in the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio, comes to mind after some pipe dreaming.
Hypothetically speaking, would you even consider purchasing such a car if it cost in somewhere in the region of $60,000-$80,000?
