A Ferrari Hatchback Is A Cute Idea, But It Will Never Exist (Don’t Tell Aston That)

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?

      I’m not ashamed to say I do too.

      I also want the car.

      Don’t judge.

      I like it a lot. Way better than the ugly California they touted for years. Yikes.

  • Brent Morrison

    This is surprisingly better than X-Tomi’s renderings.

    • parsecus

      Tomi only uses Photoshop (or some other kind of image editing software) to his works, and those renderings probably don’t take him more than a couple hour a piece. On the other hand this concept is the result of days, if not weeks worth of sketching, 3d modelling and 3d rendering. So yeah, the differences are clearly visible, but there are reasons behind that. Kudos for both of them btw

    Looks spectacular. But Ferrari’s core customer base is much older and not really adventurous. If anyone should make this, they’d have to increase the length/size and make it rally car size, and Lamborghini would be best to do it. This render would be the perfect start point for them. They could stick in Porsche’s 2.9L V6 and it would be a very popular high-selling Lambo that doesn’t dilute their brand identity/value at all. In fact, it would enhance it especially if it has certain off-road/rally abilities and give their customers a chance to add another different Lambo to their garage to fill a different purpose. Pretty sure Lambo lovers in oil rich Gulf region and China would love it.

    • Gulf and China like opulence, small cars made more sense in Europe than ever really.

  • Antonio

    I would buy it. But not as a Ferrari. I would buy it as a Dino instead

    What? Have you guys never heard of the Ferrari FF? Ferrari has that and a new hatchback.



    • Earl Scheib


  • The racing version just weird af. And the roadcar design is boring, with details taken from different cars and let’s face it, debadge it and someone think it’s regular hatch.

  • Andrew Hughes

    With great programmes comes great responsibility . . .
    Just because you can do it in Photoshop, doesn’t mean you should.

    It’s hideous

  • Miknik

    At least a proper render and not some half hearted Ferrari grille copied on a Ford Focus or Alfa Giulietta;

  • Marcos Drawer

    Very very nice idea! Awesome project!
