New Prancing Horses Rollout Plan

Italian manufacturer Ferrari is planning big for the future, with its recently announced roll out plan to mark the departure from the current gap-years when it comes to new models. According to Motor Trend, Ferrari's new approach of its production process will transform into one new Ferrari being released each year.

Currently, the Italian supercar maker has four basic products in its line-up, two GT models (California and 612) and two extreme ones (458 and 599). This line of thought will be preserved in the years to come, but with a twist.

The Italian carmaker plans to make the two lines of cars it produces, GT and extreme, more distinguishable. When one of the four models turns four years old, it will receive a facelift, dubbed by the Italians a "modificato" version, or M. The changes compared to the previous version will target both visual and performance characteristics. Four years after the facelift, the new generation of the model will be launched.

In addition to these changes, Ferrari will continue to produce Scuderia and Spyder variants of their models. Even more, a top-of-the-line Enzo version will see daylight every 10 years.

As for powerplants, it's likely a hybrid version of a Ferrari will be added, but that will not happen sooner than 2014. The hybrid will be a version of the 599, already previewed by the HY-KERS ventura laboratorio at this year's Geneva Auto Show.

Even more, the carmaker also plans the introduction of a V6 engine and turbocharged V8s.
