Before trucks and utility vehicles became all the rage, large sedans used to be the heart of the American car market. They dominated thoroughfares and back roads of this country for decades. Big Buicks, mighty Mopars and forceful Fords were a way of life for drivers just half a lifetime ago.
While most luxury vehicle manufacturers are turning in their sports cars to invade the luxury sedan segment, Ferrari is standing firm stating that they are officially ruling out sedans from their production. “As Enzo would say, we will never do four doors,” said Amedeo Felisa. “And we will keep this tradition.”
It’s a bold statement to use the word never, but it doesn’t surprise us. Ferrari is known as a pure luxury sports car with an exhilarating style that is unrivaled. Felisa claims that no one asks for a four-door Ferrari, and if you do you should consider a Maserati. Now saying that no one is asking for a four-door Ferrari is a far reach. It’s a bit sacrilegious, we’ll admit, but we wouldn’t mind seeing how one would look, perform and function. After all, just look at what a great job Porsche has done with the Panamera. But at the end of the day, while Aston Martin, Porsche and even possibly Lamborghini are turning heads with their four doors, Ferrari will focus on making the finest two-door automobiles in the world.
