Speaking to Automotive News, the Italian boss said such move would make sense since the United States is Maranello’s largest market in terms of annual sales and total number of Prancing Horses on the road.

“We have expanded our Ferrari Classiche workshop to restore and certify authenticity of our past models here in Maranello. We are also considering opening a subsidiary in the United States, probably in California.

The U.S. is our largest market not only in terms of annual sales but also when it comes to the total number of Ferrari models on the road. For some minor restorations, a workshop in California would save the significant cost of shipping the car back and forth to Maranello,” said Di Montezemolo.

Ferrari’s Classiche workshops are famous for restoring past Maranello-built models to their original condition. Furthermore, the company’s division can certify its work and guarantee authenticity for both road and racing vehicles.
