The back end certainly looks much nicer than the images that were circulating earlier in the year.

I'd like to see some profile and front end shots.

Bring it on, i always get excited when a new Ferrari's launched. I hope it's affordable for my budget - but probably not:(

Luca came out in a recent interview and stated that Ferrari would not launch a new entry level "Dino"
Could that have been a smoke screen or does a comment like that from a CEO generally mean 100% without question we are not working on that?

I really liked it, the exhausts and the lights look so fine!

but I don't know if it is just me, but it has a certain Japanese look hehehehehe

I thought the same thing when I first saw the 612, but maybe I'm just being picky

IMHO, it is a credibility issue. If they now launch a new Dino, no one will believe him in the future. Net net, don't think it is going to happen. Now the car could appear with a Maserati or Alfa badge on the front.

I read a while back in Automobile magazine that the Dino will not at all be entry-level priced, as it will be $170,000, the price of the F430 --to replace the F430 as that car will be upgraded and be offered at $200,000. is the F430 considered an entry level Ferrari? If it is, then pardon my statement.

$170,000 is not the entry level point for me. entry level would be a 328! or at most a 550.

Are most people able to enter into the Ferrari market at 170k? F430 prices?
I guess so since the Ferrari is for the wealthy. For the wealthy, an F430 is like buying a Camry.

I think people are confusing early information leaks on the 430 successor with a Dino resurection. If you step back and consider that Ferrari is part of the Fiat empire, a Dino relaunch makes little sense. It will just cannibalize Maserati sales, not to mention cutting off any hope for an Alfa 8C successor. Strategically I think it is a no go.

It is a shame they didn't make more Alfa 8Cs. I hope to add that to my garage one day as I think the car looks awesome.
