A Revived Ferrari Dino Could Carry A V6 and Some Beautiful Lines
Think about all the different iconic Ferrari models throughout the company's existence. Surely, somewhere in that list, the name Dino pops up. It was introduced to the lineup in 1968, and saw a huge amount of success in its eight year run. Though it was once considered a "Baby-Ferrari," the iconic Dino has become collectors item, but could we see a revived version in the Ferrari lineup? There’s plenty of rumors and spy shots to suggest so. But this rendering by our friends at TopSpeed might just be the seal of approval Ferrari fans need.

Like the classic Dino, this modern iteration sports an angular nose and short back. It ditches the bug-eye headlights in place of a more modern setup, and shares many cues with its 488 GTB brethren. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
While it looks good, the question remains: how will it perform? Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne is adamant on producing a V6 Ferrari, so this might be the first to carry that engine when it arrives in 2018. That may not sound all that great for supercar enthusiasts, but a more direct Porsche 911 rival in the Dino could be exactly what the Italian automaker needs.
