BACK TO CALI
Ferrari has admitted its most affordable car – a model credited with attracting new buyers to the brand – is not a perfect fit for the Prancing Horse.
Speaking frankly at the Geneva motor show, FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne admitted “the way in which we interpreted the California may not be right.”
“I like the car very much but it is the one that probably from our identity standpoint has the hardest time of seeing itself as a full-blown Ferrari.”
Ferrari tech boss Michael Leiters said the California replacement would likely sit below the current $ 409,888 price and be sharper, faster and more characterful.
“We want to develop our future cars [ too be] more fun to drive. The behaviour of the car – notn only the longitudinal acceleration but also the latera feeling – has to give a good [ sensation], not just at the limit.
