The Next Generation Of The California Is Going To Become Ferrari's Star Child

Rumor

Do these changes make you want the California more?

The FerrariCalifornia is portrayed as the automaker’s grand touring supercar. The vehicleis meant to lap racetracks with blistering speed as well as cover a lot of miles withease. According to Automobile Magazine, the next generation of the California willhave an all-new look, which will be more focused on track performance. While the changes will be track-focused, the California will still have itsfolding hardtop but it will be lighter and fold into a more efficient package.

Other big newsis that Ferrari may offer a less expensive California with atwin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 instead of the turbocharged 3.9-liter V8. There’sno word on how much power the V6 will make, but Ferrari states that 600 hp is viable. The next-gen California will also feature a modular vehicle architecture thatwill underpin future Ferrari models. The architecture will be made out of aluminumand support upcoming front and mid-engined supercars. We’re not huge fans of the California but believe that it does have its special role in the automaker’s lineup. With Ferrari planning to turn the California into a modular supercar, the new direction that the automaker is headed in is becoming a lot clearer.
