Ferrari is expected to introduce a new entry-level model which is expected to be sold under the Dino moniker.
Do you remember all those reports which kept “screaming” that Ferrari is planning an entry-level model which will be positioned below the current California? Well, they do seem to have a point now. According to the chief executive of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, “it’s a when, not an if”. The company’s official added that the new Ferrari Dino will not be a budget Ferrari so despite its expected V6 engine, chances are it will be wearing a steep price.
Rumor has it that the Dino might be also launched as a standalone brand as it was one time in the seventies and it will be paying tribute to the mid-engined sports cars which were smaller and more affordable, which were produced between 1968 and 1976. The model in question will also be named after the Ferrari founder Enzo’s son an chances are it will be sharing its engine with future Maserati and Alfa Romeo vehicles. Ferrari fans have no reason to be afraid for the future of the brand because Marchionne says that he has no plans of selling “another 500 cars at the expense of the Ferrari name” and while the initial Dino was going up against Porsche 911s, chances are the new one will be more expensive. An exact date for when such a model might be hitting the market hasn’t been provided at this time.
