It’s almost not even worth reporting because it is so expected and so obvious, but here goes: Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo has reportedly confirmed that a roadster version of the company’s new 458 Italia model is on the way.

Surprised? We didn’t think so.

Before the 458, there was the F430 and its Spider variant. And before the F430 there was the 360, and its drop-top brother. And before the 360 there as the 355… See a pattern yet?

But don’t expect the 458 Italia Spider for at least a year or two.

And after that, you don’t exactly have to be Nostradamus to predict a striped-down, light weight motorsports-inspired version of the 458.
