It’s a great time to be a Ferrari fan.
We've known for a while now that Ferrari is planning to reveal as many as five new models this year. Already, the Italian automaker has unveiled the F8 Tributo as the 488 GTB's replacement and the flagship SF90 Stradale hybrid supercar. That still leaves three new Prancing Horses we haven't seen yet – and two of them will be revealed very soon.
During a recent Q2 2019 earnings conference call transcribed by AlphaStreet, CEO Louis Camilleri confirmed that two new Ferrari models will debut this September. No exact dates were given, but the reveals will take place during a two-week event hosted at the Fiorano Circuit in Maranello, Italy. According to The Supercar Blog, invites for the event have already been sent out. After this, Camilleri confirmed a third new Ferrari model will launch before the end of this year. What could these new models be?
Potentially, we could see the Purosangue, Ferrari's first SUV, debut at the event as the automaker's answer to the Lamborghini Urus and Aston Martin DBX. Reports suggest the high-riding Prancing Horse will be powered by a turbocharged V8, with electric assistance providing a combined output of at least 650 horsepower if it has any chance of fighting the Lamborghini Urus. However, the Purosangue isn't expected to go on sale until 2022, so a debut next month seems a tad early unless it's a concept.
One model we're very likely to see is the long-rumored Ferrari 812 Superfast convertible. Members of the Ferrari Chat claim they have received invites for the debut of the roofless 812 Superfast in September. It's expected to adopt a folding metal roof mechanism similar to the 488 Spider and the coupe's 6.5-liter V12 that produces 789 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque.
Beyond that, it isn't clear yet what Ferrari has planned for later this year. One possibility is the long-rumored Dino replacement, which is expected to adopt Ferrari's new V6 hybrid engine.
