Fiat announces : Future Ferrari lineup

The Italian supercar manufacturer has revealed that it will produce six new models before 2013. The plans are part of Fiat’s restructuring plans announced yesterday. The line-up will include a new Enzo hypercar, a roofless and a ’scuderia’ version of the 458.
First in the line-up is the 458 Spyder due in 2011. The vehicle will be accompanied by a hardcore version – referred to as ‘Scuderia’. Launch date is 2013. Thirdly, a new V12-powered 612 Scaglietti is coming, a car rumoured to be the first hybrid Ferrari. The new 612 has been codenamed F151, the exact name it will have isn’t yet clear.
In 2012 the Italians will launch a new version of its Enzo. As discussed [http://www.gtspirit.com/2010/04/08/rumours-2012-ferrari-f70-enzo-successor/ (or see below)], the new model is likely to be powered by either a direct-injection twin-turbo V8 or a direct-injection twin-turbo V6. The car will have active aerodynamics.
The F152, the brand new 599 GTB Fiorano replacement, is also due in 2012. Finally, a facelift of the California – named California M – is planned in 2013.
Ferrari has also said it wants to keep the differentiation between its sports cars and its grand tourers, ensuring there won’t be any crossover between the 458 and 599 supercars and the 612 and California cruisers.
The firm will not make any more than four standard production models, meaning its range will stay as 458, 599, 612 and California. The Enzo is considered as a special model, and not part of its standard range.

According to Road&Track, [ <-- link works and more info OR Below again ]there are some ambitious plans for the successor of the Enzo. The Italian supercar maker plans a mid-engine supercar with only one goal; outperforming the Enzo in combination with being considerably more efficient to comply with emissions standards. So that means less weight, smaller engine and a more compact setup.
They do expect extensive use of carbon fiber on the vehicle achieving the ultimate performance. The target weight for the rumoured F70 is around 1000kg.
Regarding the engine the latest word is that the F70 will switch back to a twin-turbo V8. Only the F70’s direct-injected engine will use the very latest technologies to eliminate turbo lag, achieve 670–700bhp yet return excellent (for a Ferrari) fuel mileage and low emissions. A hybrid powertrain seems to be unlikely for the F70. The F70 should reach 60mph in less than 3 seconds. The target top speed of over 230mph is reached using an array of drag-reducing active aerodynamic features.
This information follows after rumours going around for some months now. We have to wait and see until more information is being unveiled, however the setup seems to be promising.

Ferrari has ambitious goals for its successor to the mighty Enzo: Rumored to be called the F70, this mid-engine supercar will have to do nothing less than substantially outperform the Enzo, while being considerably more efficient to comply with ever-tougher emissions standards. As such, it will have to do more with less. Less weight, less cylinders…but one thing will be more: the price. It’s said that when the F70 goes on sale in 2012, it could very well cost over $1 million.
Using knowledge gleaned from its Formula 1 race machines, the FXX Enzo-based track car, the FXX Mille-Chili lightweight concept, the 599FXX Track Car and the 458 Italia road machine, Ferrari has much at its disposal. The Mille-Chili from 2007 gave a clear indication of Ferrari’s new path to achieving ultimate performance: a much lighter vehicle through greater use of exotic materials such as carbon fiber. Incidentally, “mille chili” refers to 1000 kilograms (about 2200 lb.), the target weight for the F70.
Unlike the naturally aspirated V-12-powered Enzo and the F50 before that, the latest word is that the F70 will switch back to a twin-turbo V-8 as seen in the F40. Only the F70’s direct-injected engine will use the very latest technologies to eliminate turbo lag, achieve 670–700 bhp yet return excellent (for a Ferrari) fuel mileage and low emissions (a hybrid powertrain is unlikely for the F70, due to the system’s inherent added weight). The F70 should reach 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. The target top speed of over 230 mph is reached with an array of drag-reducing active aerodynamic features.
