We already know Ferrari plans on making a cheaper ‘Dino’ model to rival cars like the Porsche 911 and McLaren 570S, however plans for a new GT-segment model to be sold alongside the California T and F12 may also be in the works, according to The Motor Report.
Speaking to TMR, Ferrari Far East Hub CEO Dieter Knechtel said “there will also be another model after the California in the GT segment coming,” when asked about the possibility of a Ferrari arriving that is cheaper than the California T. It’s not clear if he means an all-new GT model to be sold alongside the California T or the successor to the front-engine V8 convertible, however.
Rumors of a Ferrari ‘Dino’ have been circulating since last summer, when Ferrari Chairman Sergio Marchionne said that the return of the Dino was a “when not an if,” type of scenario. Earlier this month, he said there had been “zero progress,” on the model, which is assumed to arrive with a twin-turbocharged V6 engine. Knechtel may have also been referencing the Dino, though it would be odd to refer to a mid-engine supercar as a ‘GT’.
