Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo announced his resignation less than 48 hours ago but the changes are coming fast and furious as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne has announced plans to ramp up production.

Speaking at an event in Italy, Marchionne said the company will begin producing more models because the high-end sports car segment has grown. As the executive explained, if the company doesn't increase production "the waiting list will become too long and people [will] get tired [of waiting].” Marchionne declined to say how many cars will be built but he previously hinted that Ferrari could produce 10,000 units annually.

This is in stark contrast to di Montezemolo's five year plan which called for production to remain capped at 7,000 units annually to "preserve the brand's uniqueness."
