    Anyone else heard the rumour that a new V12 grand tourer will be launched in November this year? Any truth to it?

    Interesting. Portofino Coupe? So the “new rumours” are just the old news (with a mistaken expectation in engine type) as the V8 coupe Portofino proposal was mentioned on Ferrarichat many months ago.

    No idea when a Lusso replacement will debut, but from what I hear, both the Lusso and 812 successor will be V12. There will also be a successor of the Lusso T in V8. I believe the final car to debut this year will be the Porto Coupè V6.

    I assume an intermediate car before the SUV is launched? Would not make sense to me for Ferrari to make a Lusso type car and a SUV.

    Why not? They represent two completely different segments. The FUV will compete with the Urus. Bentayga and partly Levante Trofeo and Cayenne Turbo.

    Last rumour I heard, because that is all it is, was that the LB and two Lusso models was in the.pipeline for 2020. An 812 VS and SF90 Spider was also hinted. But as Challenge64 says, what do I know.

    I heard it was a Portofino based coupe with a completely different body style.

    Yep. 4 down, 1 to go. Can't help but wondering if the life cycle of all the models will be cut down to three years at some point. Sure looks like that's all the F8 will get if you count 2019 as part of the F8life.

    The problem is boy the life cycle. From my point of view it is they promote car 1,5year before delivery.. This means sue to long time delivery that u get your car while new model is coming... I have Portofino since 1 week... And now a new Portofino?

    This is the mistake, I love new car and more model. I hate to get my car while new style is launching.

    I assume pricing will be more than the Portofino but less than the F8. For me its difficult see the point of this car, the Portofino already does the job of a coupe and a spider. The only way a car like this could work is if its a stripped out front engine car the front engine equivalent of a Pista perhaps.

    That’s a good shout. A bit like what Porsche did with the Cayman v Boxster. You would naturally expect the coupe to be cheaper than the open top but they instead chose a more hardcore driver theme and priced it above the Boxster. A front-engined V8 turbo with, say, 700 bhp and less weight and more hardcore chassis at the price of the 488 would yield decent margins and fill a product gap. Great idea I reckon.

    It is not a new Porto, and unless you wanted a closed top in the first place, I don't see any downsides to your Porto. It's just a closed version. I would guess that boot space is on par and the rear seats are just as useless. It's definitely not going to compete with an actual 4 seater like the Lusso.

    I think delivery times will be a bit shorter down the line for these cars, so you don't have to wait 18 months. That being said, 18 months is very long for a Porto. Did you get hit with any paint delays or the like?

    Neil is spot on. Will be a V8. As to production runs, Ferrari is saying most new models are limited production (Pista, 812 GTS etc) versus limited edition or limited number. Ferrari has yet to define limited production. Why? If demand is exceedingly high and the car has a high margin, they can continue to produce them over less profitable or lower demand models.

    simply put, this is what you call shareholder value!!
