Outgoing Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo shed some light about the company's future following his imminent departure.
di Montezemolo announced during his last press conference as Ferrari chairman that the company will not produce four-door or SUV body styles as the prancing horse will continue to focus on two-door sports cars. Moreover, he also abolished rumors about the possibility of launching a motorcycle after news of applying for a patent referring to a V-twin engine design.
Forthcoming Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne said he is happy with the current production levels (capped at 7,200 units annually) and dismissed rumors which referred to bumping production capacity to 10,000 cars per year. In addition, Marchionne mentioned he doesn't plan on integrating Ferrari in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) because "the mixing of their blood would be fatal for both."
Lastly, Sergio Marchionne also declared the firm's "non-negotiable objective" is to put Scuderia Ferrari back on top of F1.
