Ferrari will follow up the 2019 launch of the F8 Tributo supercar with the debuts of four other vehicles this year.
Speaking to Australia’s Which Car, Ferrari senior vice president of commercial and marketing, Enrico Galliera, confirmed that the automaker will introduce a second mid-engine platform this year to slot below the new F8 Tributo.
“Five will come in 2019, which is probably the biggest effort. It’s the start of the new generation of product.
“Some of them are replacing an existing product, some of them are not so. Already in 2019 you will see some products that are existing in the product range, and another thing that I can say is that we will nurture both the GT segment, and the sports segment,” Galliera confirmed.
Few details about Ferrari’s entry-level mid-engine platform sports car are known but it’s been confirmed that the vehicle, and any future variants, will use a turbocharged V6 engine. Speaking about this vehicle, Galliera said that it will be more suited to everyday driving than the company’s other mid-engined products but still be a true Ferrari.
“We are developing some products that are designed to give the same emotion as a Ferrari.
“So, it is a sports car but with this design that it is more elegant that is more for everyday driving in order to attract those people that maybe are not considering to buy a Ferrari, because they are not willing to have a highly sporty car. So, in a way, we are trying to have an offer that is capturing both opportunities.”
It remains to be seen what other new products Ferrari has in the pipeline for 2019 but one thing is clear, all of them will be quick and all will be expensive.
