According to Ferrari's CEO Sergio Marchionne, the Ferrari SUV will "probably happen." Later, Marchionne said that the folks at Ferrari are "dead serious" about the plan to build an SUV or "FUV" as Ferrari is calling it.
These comments released by the CEO confirm what Marchionne has already suggested to people about Ferrari's planned-yet-unplanned SUV. A Bloomberg story on Automotive News reports that the Ferrari SUV is beyond consideration and is the minutiae of production decisions.
Apparently, this process will take 30 months to sort out. In addition, the SUV's production numbers will be kept low to keep it more expensive.
With Maserati's Levante GTS on its way, that might be a good platform for Ferrari to borrow for its own SUV. Of course, Ferrari would also be able to take its stylish GTC4Lusso, seen in the gallery above, add some cladding and lift it a bit.
Either way, we think it's pretty safe to say that Ferrari will indeed be building an SUV eventually because it's something their consumers want. Now it seems that Ferrari must decide if it's going to have a turbocharged V8 under the hood or a V12!
