Ferrari Plans Twin-Turbo V6 Sports Car

13

Ferrari might be preparing a move downmarket that will make owning one of its products less expensive.

The company hasn’t made an official announcement yet, but Motor Trend’s Johnny Lieberman said through his Twitter account that the company has a twin-turbo V6 car coming that will take aim at the Porsche 911 Turbo S, Mercedes-AMG GT and the McLaren 570S. Supposedly it will be priced around $180,000 and will arrive for the 2019 model year.

A car like that could become a spiritual Dino successor, which Ferrari marketed as a lower cost marque in the late 60s and early 70s for vehicles with fewer than 12 cylinders.

McLaren unveiled the 570S during the 2015 New York Auto Show last week, also aiming for roughly the same price range as the 911 Turbo S, but the company also confirmed plans for an even less expensive 540S that will also be a part of its “Sport Series” vehicle family.
