Ferrari is teasing what could be the latest version of its “entry-level” hardtop convertible: the California.

Past rumors suggest that it will use a modified version of the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 used in the Maserati Quattroporte, but tuned to make about 550 hp.

Regardless, the debut is scheduled for next week so there isn’t long to wait.

Update: A Ferrari spokeswoman confirmed that information regarding a debut at the Geneva Motor Show will be released on February 12 but declined to provide further details.
