Ferrari CEO: We will never do a four-door sports sedan

2011 Ferrari 599 GTO

Ferrari’s CEO Amedeo Felisa has confirmed that the Italian automaker will “never” do a four-door sports sedan to compete with rivals such as the Aston Martin Rapide and the Porsche Panamera.

“As Enzo [Ferrari, company founder] would say, we will never do four doors,” said Felisa. “And we will keep this tradition.”

When Felisa was asked why Ferrari has decided to move towards hybrids and fuel-saving technologies like stop/start systems, he said: “Hybrid was forced on us by regulation, there is no regulation forcing us to do four doors.

“Frankly speaking no-one is asking for a four-door Ferrari, Felisa said. If you want a four door Ferrari we have a Maserati. We stand 60 years and we never needed four doors.”

Speaking of four-doors, Lamborghini has been pretty quite about the Estoque.
