    Default Ferrari SUV???

    Surprised with Porsche’s success on their Cayenne model, Ferrari is rumored to give a green light to produce a SUV. However, the only thing against the idea is the brand tradition and it’s true that the Italian producer is very conservative, so are the clients. We already know that beautiful is not enough, so the new one should be built to make it live up to the firm’s dynamic reputation.
    Since everyone needs profits, Ferrari is prepared to release their F151 project, the prancing horse SUV that would sell for more than €200,000 . They could start from Maserati’s 4×4 that is already approved for production, and work on it, but rumors say that the designers will have the task of starting fresh.
    If this will turn out to be true, the first Ferrari F151 prototype with V8 and V12 engines, will be released in 2010 with production starting a year later.

    OK. Really soory if this is old news but I stumbled upon this while searching through car news websites. If it is something everyone already knows about then feel free to close the thread. I haven't seen it yet. It's and odd idea that's for sure. But I quite like it. What do you think?

    I've recently seen a post on Autoblog saying that Ferrari WILL NOT by any chance make an SUV or a 4 door car. People and their rumors... Ferrari WAS NOT ment to build SUVs.

    Ferrari said its gonna keep its image by not making 4 door cars/SUV's all that stuff should be left to its sister Maserati IMO, with the Quattroporte, and an SUV(or Crossover based on the Quattroporte) won't hurt the brands image at all/much.

    so, if they were never going to make one, and never have, where did that image come from?

    Probably a photoshopped 612 Scaglietti.

    IMO I still think if Ferrari is gonna make an SUV, it should be a Maserati.

    I don't think it's photoshoped. I checked the actual date of the release and it was actually months before Ferrari made their statment about no SUVs or four-doors. They must have changed their minds.

    I tihnk it's a good idea. But the reality is, it will most likely never ever happen.
    U mad bro?

    That image has been around for around 1 or 2 years

    I highly doubt that Ferrari would make this 4x4, it would wreck its reputation, the fact that they've said that themself helps my arguement

    It wouldnt be used offroad and any driver is obviously going to be a wag.

    maybe a few years ago, ferrari may have built it, with a very slim chance, but now look at the market, 4x4s DO NOT SELL, since the recession and raising fuel costs, 4x4s are becoming a bit of a dog in the modern market, i remember watching a program about recession and cars, and a family who had bought a dock off mitsu had been losing £200 a day on it since they bought it 2 years ago.

    I believe, in all honesty, that the picture in question has probably been around nearly as long as the 612 Scaglietti.

    However, I could be wrong, as it also reminds me of the 599 GTB, both of which seem reliable candidates to photoshop for this.

    Anyway, long story short:

    Photoshop, slim chance of this actually coming to light.

    Again, just my opinion.
    This is my signature until I can think of something better.

    I'll be suprised to see this surface, especially with the way the industry is atm.

    I haveseen this a few months ago and can't really see why they would want to go into the SUV market.
