New Dino

Any one have a take on how long before the new street Dino will be after next year's F1 change?

I've been predicting this one for several years and now that F1 is into the 6's I'll bet the new 'Dino' [but Ferrari badged] is not far behind.

also, sort of betting it'll have updated lines to the older ones, but with flairs and chairs standard: would be a shoe in for a true track car in keeping with the spirit of the road-to-racer scenario. then again, IMO

I don't think they will integrate that in their current product line. They only have so much production capacity and they are doing quite well with the line up they have sales wise.


I can see however a change, due to global market pressure from fuel mileage/pollution concerns to go to either replacing the V8's with a TT V6 of similar or better power or possibly a limited production 288esq mini supercar.

Many of us said in 1985 that the problem with the 288 was they built too few and they should have just scrapped the upcoming V8 line (328, 348 etc) and progressed along the 288 concept. It wasn't a very expensive car when new.

They do have a history of capitalizing on the developments for racing and using that to publicize the cross over of technology. That was kind of what was behind the turbo cars last time and the "t" transmissions. The V6 TT should be no different.

The Alfa 4C is getting a Maserati badge and yes, a V6. That's probably as close as it gets. Nevertheless, a new Dino would be awesome!

That comment from you Pablo, given your thoroughbred stable, makes me rethink how wonderful the old Dino must really be.

I couldn't even begin to explain how sweet the Dino is to push hard. In fact, I'm leaving any time now for the route Napoleon and further over the Pyrenees into Spain, hope to send you pictures by tomorrow.

Solid sunshine and off tourist season, FLED Napoleon/Pyreneenne Winter Special is about to start! You can still tag along, I'll wait up for latecomers up in the Prealpines!

That would have been something else!

Agreed. If the Maserati comes to fruition, that will be as close as they come. Ferrari's business model simply doesn't suit a Dino these days.

Dunno: I'm still betting that if they came out with a FF and now exploring pure electric and a [shudder] SUV crossover that their roots in a Dino are closer than further away from a wanting public.

The obvious downside is Lucca mentions a product line to only 7,000 [only !] cars in near future.

however, this site might have a good idea of how modern may mix with the old.

Dino was a blast to drive and that was why I wanted a Boxer. Thought it might be like a Dino with more power. Not.

With Ferrari limiting production to 7000 cars, they would have to spin off a new Dino. Wonder if there is a market for one badged just as a Dino? Too much competition for Maserati and Fiat/Lancia/Alfa, probably.

Before the heavy hybrids, FFs and Calis Luca was talking about the Mille Chili project. The carbon tub from the 4C would be a good starting base for that but a Ferrari sharing platform or vital parts with a lesser cast is an off-turn. Time will tell. Meantime, get a hold of a Dino or a 3x8 before they rise even more in price.

Maybe not a Boxer, but certainly a Boxster. Having driven my wife's 2.7 now and again over the past 10 years I always get the feeling that there is Dino DNA in the car. The poise and feel are very similar in the way the chassis outperforms the engine, and a sweet flow through the bends.
Ferrari should and could build a new Dino.

Dudlow- Had an 05 Boxster for about 6 months. Nice little car, but it did not have the feel or sound of a Dino to me. Power steering, for one thing, and no cam chain and transfer case noises over your shoulder. Even with tiny tires, the Dino was a lot more fun to drive than the somewhat sterile Boxster. My Dino was a daily driver in New Mexico for three years.

The Alfa 4C carbon fibre tub is something the McLaren level competitors have and I think it fits closer to Ferrari than folks are giving it credit for. New Dino please

You need to try the Cayman S then re-evaluate.

I assume a Cayman from a well credited tuning house and a good deal of lightweight added should be absolutely super! I would love to see Porsche do a GT3 job on the Cayman. Alas, Porsche is dead scared of having the mid engined Cayman outperform the 911 - Well in that case Porsche, leave the engine be and just pass the magic GT3-wand on the rest of the car!

Another idea: Get a a used Cayman and spend some money on racing breaks, bucket seats, sharper suspension, high performance tyres and throw away some of the heavy interior parts. That's a recipe for a cheap track car/daily driver/favourite mountain pass beater.

No, would rather have a Boxster than a Cayman. Prettier and not much difference in performance or handling.

You'd be amazed at how much they altered for the R. It's like a Scuderia version of the S.
