Ferrari has released one last teaser before the Italian automaker reveals something to us on February, 12.

Odds are the teaser is for the next generation Ferrari California, based on the use of 149 in the name, as 149 is the internal name for the California. Other rumors suggest that it could be a one-off California-based coupe that would be called the FFX.

If it is indeed the new California, expect the car to arrive with a turbocharged engine, likely the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 used in the Maserati Quattroporte, but tuned to make about 550 hp.

Be sure to check back on the 12th to see what Ferrari has up its sleeve.
