Exec also rules out sedans, crossovers and entry-level models

Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo has dismissed rumors that the company is considering a sedan or crossover.

Speaking with Auto Motor und Sport, Montezemolo said crossovers aren't "emotional" enough for the brand to consider. He added that Ferrari will stick with two-door models that combine "performance and driving pleasure." The executive went on to say that anyone who wants a Ferrari-like sedan or crossover can simply buy one from Maserati.

When asked about the possibility of a new entry-level model, Montezemolo simply responded by saying "A smaller and cheaper Ferrari is not a Ferrari."

Despite dismissing the aforementioned vehicles, Montezemolo confirmed the Enzo successor will be introduced next month and the California will receive several new variants.

Fact is that growth in China and soon India will mean that Ferrari will be able to expand production quite rapidly but it will still mean that these cars will be very rare around the world, except maybe in some parts of a handful of cities.

Correct me if I'm wrong, and I may well be, but I believe the modern day Dino is the 458 Italia, even though this nor any others apart from the 246 were badged Dino (and not counting the very ordinary 308 GT4?)? I thought the progression from the Dino 246 has been: 246 / 308 / 328 / 348 / 360 / 430 / 458.

Ah yes, thank you. The 355. The most forgettable of them. No wonder.

While Wikipedia links it to the 308 lineage, the Dino was a V6, whereas all the others are V8s. A "new Dino" would be a slightly less-expensive V6 model to sit under the 458, sort of like the Porsche Cayman S (only faster).

Luca di Montezemolo is the guy! One of few in the car industry who doesn't care about money and offering more cars. He wants to create beautiful and emotional machines. Enzo would be proud.
