    Saw this come up again while lurking the forum and thought about it a bit this morning. I'm assuming it is supposed to slot below the "entry" California/Portofino, becoming the new entry model.

    Since Ferrari designed the Giulia QV I wonder how much of that experience will carry over (100k +/- commute oriented car).

    I wonder what a Ferrari cheaper than a Portofino will look like.

    I wonder how much of Maserati's lunch it's going to eat considering at one point Maserati was the "entry level Ferrari".

    I would hope the price point is lower than a Portofino.
    It may resemble the Dino.
    We should see a prototype in 2019.

    Hoping. Early buzz was that it was going to cost more than the 488!

    Are there any links to this purported model? We know about the turbo V6 hybrid, but that will have performance incrementally better than the 488. IOW, not a Dino. Then there is the mid-V8 turbo hybrid, that will have performance in the halo car range (Supposedly better than La Ferrari). That's a new category.

    Is there a non hybrid model rumor? The specs make it seem like it's the same engine in the Quadrifoglio. 2.9 liter V6.

    There will be multiple V6 models in Ferrari lineup.

    Eventually, yes, but the only one I'm aware of that's been defined is the 488 replacement.

    The only replacement for the 488 I want is a 458.

    I'm not interested in anything newer than an F430 stick. :)
