Fer­rari’s SUV: It’s com­ing

Wheels (Australia) - - Redlind -

FCA CEO Ser­gio Mar­chionne fa­mously claimed you’d need to shoot him be­fore Fer­rari built an SUV. That tone has soft­ened dras­ti­cally in re­cent months, with Mar­chionne quoted as say­ing “There are more peo­ple that would buy non-ex­treme ver­sions of Fer­rari than those that will buy ex­treme ver­sions,” in a dis­cus­sion about the po­ten­tial of a util­ity ve­hi­cle from Maranello. Well-placed sources claim that ‘Project F16X’ is al­ready well ad­vanced, and a high-rid­ing fourseater could lift Fer­rari’s sales from their present 9000 ve­hi­cles per year closer to 15,000.
