    What could the publicly-owned Scuderia in Maranello release upon the world next?
    Will it be a proper pinnacle to supersede and trounce the Urus, Bentayga, Cayenne, et al?

    Now that the musings about 812VS and Icona.2 are stalled without leaks, and the F8VS is simply a waiting game (will they? won't they?), I figured it's time for a new wild speculation thread about an expected upcoming model, the first Ferrari SUV, so-called FUV / Purosangue.

    Multiple votes possible to address hybrid status, 4WD and all-wheel steering, as well as power and price.

    Please, limit the ridiculous speculative photoshop renders because they merely hurt the eyes.
    All in good fun...

    Cheers

    My best guess given their previous product cycles and how they seem to be shortening them - would be a F8 Spider or some variety or a 812 VS next.

    Or maybe another AWD hybrid? Surely they could not have spent all that R&D money on a whole new configuration just for one product.

    ...you should have added “Won’t Happen” as an option.

    Oh snap
    That would be a plot twist

    I should have also included "shouldn't happen" just to cover all the opinions

    Although "Manual gear box" doesn't even deserve mention as it's just wishful/delusional thinking at this point.

    I was believing it would happen 100% however after they scrapped one of the designs for it that was supposedly pretty complete and decided upon and then delaying it’s debut by a couple of years and also quiet talk about taking the company private again I started wane just a bit in believing Purosange would materialize.

    They should do that, just to watch purists heads explode! ;)

    I think (OK, hope!) like the Lusso, there will be a V8 T for people who want the Ferrari badge and want to lay out a few less bucks for that privilege, and then a V12 for trophy husbands like me who want bragging rights while loading 30-count rolls of toilet paper in our SUVs @ Costco! :D

    I agree, would have been interesting to add manual-trans, and I would have bought one, but sadly looking at the how many 430 manuals were sold, and the current take-rate on those few cars that still offer a 3-pedal option, I doubt you'll ever see a manual SUV/CUV

    My thinking is that the successful experience of Porsche, combined with overall sales trends favoring SUV-type vehicles, make it a fait accompli.
    A public company that manufacturers luxury autos and has a stated goal of moving more units would ignore it at their own peril.

    Good on Ferrari if they take their time to get it right, although I personally am not their target audience.

    Going private again would be an even bigger plot twist than a manual gear box, but I think it’s even less likely.

    Unfortunately an SUV to satisfy the shareholders!!! (Saw the RR SUV today. Not sure I've seen anything uglier in my life, other than an American/Sannnyong SUV!) We also have to replace the 488 spider! So I'd go with that next.

    But one would hope for a manual as Porsche and Aston Martin have!!! But highly unlikely I suspect.

    Oh well .... I guess I’m in the minority. I have zero interest in a Ferrari SUV. Best ,Kirk.

    I don’t mean necessarily interest in buying the car. I mean what an SUV represents for Ferrari. The end of all that’s holy or the beginning of a new era.

    Wealthy housewives are getting bored with G-wagens and Range Rovers, they want a more sexy car but it must be on stilts of course so they can see better and feel “safer”.
    Hence the Purosangue..........

    I wish that I didn't have to live long enough to see a Ferrari SUV. Unfortunately they already have the FF.

    Only thing I know for sure is that I won’t be getting one.

    When I think “supercar”, it’s impossible not to think “Ferrari”.

    When I think “SUV”, I find it impossible to think “Ferrari”.

    Honestly, I don’t care if it’s naturally aspirated or turbo, V6 or V12, hybrid or Diesel. When I want the unsurpassable feeling of a true supercar, I buy a Ferrari.

    If I want a true SUV instead of a fashion statement, fast, powerful, super comfortable, with all terrain skills, elegant, majestic and beautiful, I buy a Land Rover.

    An SUV is a disgrace to the brand’s essence and heritage, no matter how good it may turn out to be. It may even be the best SUV in the History of the world. Ferrari shouldn’t be building an SUV any more than they should be building a pickup truck or a small city car. That should be left to the other car manufacturers, imvho.

    Who has ever missed an SUV in Ferrari’s model range to suppress their Ferrari ownership thirst? Who among us had an SUV posted on our bedroom wall growing up? Who asked for an SUV?

    Kind regards,

    Nuno.

    totally - how the hell are they going to service suvs - its one thing for an owner to have an ff/lusso hung up for weeks, but that doesnt work in SUV land. there is no way they can pull off what porsche did.

    The SUV saved Porsche, maybe the move to SUV has something to do with Ferrari's hidden financial trouble unbeknownst to the public yet? Totally a conjecture here.

    Nuno, your post is as eloquent as it is sincere. I felt your passion come through, and it dug deep into me. I say these things because I am cautious about disagreeing with you because I respect your viewpoint very much.

    I am okay with Ferrari's expansion into the SUV space, not so much because I want to own one, but because I know, they make so much money. I would hope these extra funds could go on to develop other pure sports cars, and maybe even bolster their F1 budget. Ala RAV4s for LFAs, Explorers for GT40s, F150s for Vettes, CRVs for NSXs, etc.

    Ferrari has so much cash on hand thanks to limited editions like the Monza, that they have been doing a share buy back. So all signs point to increasing profits and the SUV will just pile on.

    While I agree with Nuno, and I think Ferrari should never make an SUV, there’s no doubt in my mind that they will sell like hot cakes. The Ferrari California was a huge change for the company, as most Cali buyers were new to the brand. The same will go for the SUV I presume, especially with the increased production numbers coming. the CEO has no concern for losing their official status as a ‘small’ auto manufacturer. The brand is changing and so are it’s customers.

    Imagine the person that buys an AMG Mercedes SUV, or a Lamborghini Urus... how could they possibly turn down a V12 Ferrari SUV? The Lambo doesn’t even have a lambo engine!

    In this instance, what doesn’t kill Ferrari, makes them stronger. The days of pure exotic sports cars seem to be over and Ferrari has been trending away from their historical essence for close to a decade.

    True Ferrari fans were blind to the shortcomings of previous models, because the experience alone is what they wanted. These people never asked for an SUV and so this Ferrari is not for them.

    To many new models in my estimation, Im sad to see Ferrari go this route . I can remember back in the 70s and 80s and 90s, they released one stellar mid motor mounted machine...at a time...76 was the 308, 86 was the 328 , then the 348, then the 355, then the 360 then the 430..Can u remember how excited you were to see that ONE NEW MACHINE JUST OUT THE THE FACTORY ??? It was a nice pace for the company, you knew all the models, now Im so Fn confused as to which is which ??? I did not mention the F40, F50 Testa rossss they were awesome super car releases to go along with the other mid mounted V8s in the same production years. . It was not hard to remember each models specs. When the 328s , 308 s 348s . 355s , they where either Berlinettas , targa tops. or drop tops.Ferrari also made race versions of these cars that where not street legal,I think thats correct. Anyways, I hope this post makes some sense Oh and I forgot, I was always able to remember whats years of production for all Ferrari models, Now I Cannot

    Thank you

    Agreed. If you asked me today what models are current then apart from 488 and Portofino I'm not exactly sure. Then on the website...

    Unfortunately as a public company, an SUV is almost a certain requirement nowadays to maintain profitability as the markets for the firms get wider and more competitive. I don’t see Ferrari being able to avoid it if they remain public, which above see,s to be questionable

    If they do produce one, they will need to make the most special one ever so they make it almost impossible to get, and therefore maximise the profit while limiting production. I think it will end up with 4 wheel drive, steer and traction/stability, of course, but a road mode where suspension can be properly reduced in height (not just 20 mm like a range etc).

    Engines, as per yesterday’s prediction, they will need hybrid V6 or V8 entry models, and then a V12 masterpiece edition, I’m guessing pricing a little under 488/F8 for the base, 50/80k uplift for the full fat monster.

    One thing is for sure, there will be a waiting list, they will sell out before they are launched, and no one will drive them and not feel better than every other SUV, just like the rest of the range. Sad as it will be, I will be buying one to replace the Range Rover, as let’s face it, the worst off reading I do is once a year towing my gardener out of a ditch in his Defender, or maybe hoping a kerb around traffic, hardly mountain climbing. Generally, it’s a fast method of getting a large amount of passengers and/or luggage to a place or airport, and I’d rather have a Ferrari for any job
