According to company insiders, the 2019 Ferrari Dino will share its underpinnings with the Maserati Alfieri, including a V6 engine. Evidently, the power plant will be reengineered by Ferrari’s finest, along with a complete overhaul of the chassis and drive train.
The idea behind this massive change in configuration would be to differentiate the Dino from the Alfieri, along with justifying the price tag, which is expected to double in when compared to the Trident’s 2+2 Coupe.
Ferrari’s more affordable model would come as a response to the new plans that have been laid out by Sergio Marchionne for the brand. The CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has repeatedly talked about introducing more models in the Ferrari range, but reaffirmed his commitment against a Ferrari SUV.
Just like the California, Ferrari will not restrict the production of its affordable model by deciding to build one less than it estimates it could sell. However, do not expect to get a lease on a cheap Ferrari just yet, because the Italian brand will still limit its output in some way, along with placing a hefty price tag on its most affordable car.
Rumors in the automotive industry put the Ferrari Dino’s starting price at about 150 large ones, but that is not a sum you should take as definitive. Until Mr. Marchionne makes a final decision about this model, you can still save up to buy the Maserati Alfieri, which should reach showrooms by 2020 and start at about half the price of the reborn Dino.
