Spoke to Ronnie Kessel who saw it at the factory and yep, it is definitely moving towards the Panamera segment with all the Panamera bells and whistles. According to Ronnie it is the actual replacement of the 612. That's a pitty but you never know. The replacement is so far off the 612 concept they might consider yet another model, a 4x2 two door which will be the true replacement of the 612.
I actually don't mind Ferrari making a good, reasonably lightweight 4x4 GT. As long as it is not through eliminating existent models and as long as they really try hard finally to limit the supply and raise the price, for heaven's sake. I want expensive and few Ferraris of each model. Also, if the new 4x4 should happen to cannibalize on the California I wouldn't run out to the baricades over it... Fewer of the California will help itself becoming more exclusive.
If the new 4x4 turns out to be my teacup I might consider trading my MB G55 for it and have it do the G55's winter job and trailer pulling, maybe...
The bad news: Time flies
The good news: I'm the pilot
