This year will see the Prancing Horse prepare for its hybrid era.
As first noticed by Motor1, Ferrari's 2022 financial year earnings call - which detailed record financial results for 2022 - revealed that the Prancing Horse will launch four new models before the end of 2023, with another 11 to follow over the next three years (2023-2026). As is typical of the brand, no further details were provided, but it appears that Ferrari will average five models per year. What will these be?
While Ferrari is notoriously secretive about what's in the pipeline, based on spy shots, rumors, and basic logic, we can hazard some accurate guesses. As Lamborghini prepares to reveal its Aventador successor, Ferrari is working on replacing the 812. That's one car we know is definitely coming soon.
Another "new" car we expect to see before too long is a special edition, or Versione Speciale, of the Ferrari SF90. Prototypes have been spotted in Italy numerous times in 2022, which makes a 2023 release all the more likely. Based on Ferrari's announcement that it will "enhance client experiences on track and road," this could be a track-only car.
We've also spotted Maranello's engineers benchmarking the Lamborghini Huracan STO around Fiorano, which could suggest a hardcore version of the F8 Tributo is in the works. This tracks, as the 458 Italia got a Speciale variant, the 488 GTB got the Pista, and the F8 has, to date, been ignored.
Another car we expect to see soon is the rumored Roma Spider (the name is yet to be confirmed), test mules of which have been spotted numerous times over the last few months. This is expected to replace the aging Portofino M.
Again, these are all speculative assumptions, but aside from a hardcore version of the F8, the other models seem destined for production as predicted.
It's also possible that we'll see new additions to the Icona series, home to the Monza SP1 and SP2 and the Daytona SP3, but these could also come in 2024 or later. Ferrari is rumored to be launching a LaFerrari replacement in 2024, so we doubt it would want to dilute its special editions' image too much by introducing limited-production models two years in a row.
Whenever they arrive, Ferrari's first fully electric vehicle and a hypercar are definitely still in the cards. What a time to be rich.
