Ferrari California replacement coming next summer image

Ferrari is currently working on the successor of the popular California model and the supercar should finally hit the market sometimes next summer.

There is no official word on a replacement for the Ferrari California just yet from the Italian based automaker but the guys at Car and Driver are saying that the successor of the supercar is expected to arrive as early as next summer. According to our source, the next generation of the Ferrari California will get a retro inspired design and the supercar will get some of the lines from the classic 250 GTO, along with a folding hardtop which will raise and lower quicker than the current one.

The successor of the Ferrari California is also expected to be powered by a new turbocharged V8 engine, fitted with the kinetic energy recovery system, or simply KERS, which will develop a total output of approximately 600 horsepower. With the impressive output sent to its wheels, the replacement of the Ferrari California is expected to do the 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint in just 3.5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h). More details on the future Ferrari California will be announced next year.
