A couple of reasons:

You had recessions in the US and parts of Europe in 92/93.

The super car/Ferrari market bubble of the late 80's-90 had burst.

The model line up in 92/93 was not one of Ferrari's strongest. The 348 was controversial and the Testarossa/TR 512 was nearing the end of its long run. There was no 2+2 GT during this period.

Both the F355 and 456 GT were launched in 94.

Thanks Boxer.

Don't you think 4000 or 4500 cars per year is too much for Ferrari ? And with the chinese, indian and maybe russian markets, things could go worse in the future... 5000 or even 6000 cars per year is not impossible.

I think an annual production output of 4-5000 cars a year is fine. If a new entry level "Dino" is added to the line up, then I would add another 1500 to the above numbers. At these levels, Ferrari should be financially stable.
Maybe it is financially stable (though with Fiat on its back that should not be a problem).
But, in my opinion, it's losing a little bit of its exclusivity.

I think people are just getting richer and spending more money. I saw a report in the Economist recently showing savings dropping to all time lows in all developed nations. Therefore demand is going up and Ferrari is meeting the supply.

To put it in perspective, 5,000 is probably a fraction of what Toyoto makes in a day. And that 5,000 is in a year.

North American production only (2,000,000+): http://www.toyota.com/about/operations/numbers/factsfigures04/na_production.html

Agree on the exclusivity but I don't think that is avoidable. On Fiat, I think Ferrari would be much better off on its own. Fiat is in terrible shape and its chances of recovery are 50/50 at best. If it was my business, I would spin Ferrari, Maserati, Lancia, and Alfa off as a seperate Luxury and Sports car company.

Dear ferraristi,

where can the information about the annual production numbers officially be found?

Thank you very much.

Okay guys: my search was successful: I've found a source publishing the annual production numbers because I needed it for my master thesis. There is a figure on page 51 of Dregni, Michael: Ferrari - Das Werk. Maybe that information might be helpful to omahoney32's dissertation but probably it's too late since his posting was made in 2011 and he might have finished until now.
