    That's today, but in an earlier post a few weeks ago he has written what I just said. ;)

    Btw, is there any big Ferrari event in the Summer next year?

    For maximum effect you would want to spread out the announcements I would think. Though the media is certainly taking notice of these comments here but of course still getting it wrong. A little knowledge is dangerous.
    Nothing comparable to the 70 Anni events that took place this year.

    Not a betting man but I would bet the face lift 488 GTB to use the PISTA body and all other items current 488 GTB. Maybe not the S duct but all the other body modifications as the improved aspects, also maybe the new steering wheel...

    something like BMW had the E36 M3 but also offered the STD 3 series with the M3 body for a little change to boost sales

    From what I've read, Pista and FL's bodies have been developed at the same time and by the same team

    Ferrari has offered up a good amount of design nostalgia with it's recent designs like the 812 Monza and tdF spider. I wonder if this 1968 Ferrari P5 'space ship' design from the Ferrari back catalogue influenced the look of big brother?

    What else do we have to know about the 'big brother'? Hmmm...

    It's not a V12 is it?

    Future V12 models seem to be placed in the Icona series. Only the LaFerrari in recent times had a V12 motor positioned behind the driver. Smaller more efficient engines are the future trend...

    I would say either "Fratello Maggiore" ("oldest brother") or, literally, "Fratellone." Fred

    If I remember right, they said future "big" front-engined grand tourers (standard production, no Iconas) will be more exclusive and expensive. In my opinion this kind of placement will require a v12, at least as an option (as per current GTC4 offering)
