Very interesting question, never thought about it.
I think the Quattroporte is not a strictly correct analogy, after all it has 4 doors (although that does sound much better in Italian!). But the question still needs to be asked: what audience buys a modern Ferrari 2+2? If I was in the market for such a car, I would far sooner go for a Bentley GT - it has more cossetting style than the Ferrari which, in some respects, does not know what it wants to be. Grand tourer, family car, every day car or sports car?
I would really like Ferrari to devote its energy to performance vehicles per se. That doesn't mean they can't be useable but the 550/599 type car should be the most practical car Ferrari makes, with the rest of the range focusing on pure driving focus.
A lightweight entry level car is still what I would like to see. This may be in development as the new Dino, whatever it is going to be called, if indeed it is underdevelopment. It should not be badged a Ferrari, just to keep the name exclusive and production numbers down, but it should be a clear F-design (ie Pinin) that fits in the rest of the line.
On the other end of the spectrum, a new hypercar is certainly required and is under development but I think there is a gap between 599 and Enzo price that could be filled by a V10 2-seater car. It should be focused more on track use, sort of a Scuderia on steriods. Could be quite interesting.
All-in-all, though, I think Ferrari has a great line-up at the moment. The Scuderia didn't come a moment too soon, though.
