Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne has said that the V6-powered entry-level Dino model remains on the drawing board.
Marchionne said last year to Autocar that the Dino name and a V6 return was possible, but today at the Geneva motor show he said there had been "zero progress" since and it was "on the drawing board". He added: "We'll let you know when there's something to say."
Marchionne also ruled out an electric car from Ferrari because noise was part of the appeal of driving one, although hybrids were inevitable. However, hybrids would be used to boost the performance and driveability and not just cut CO2 emissions, as with LaFerrari.
Marchionne again ruled out an SUV for Ferrari and said an autonomous Ferrari would happen "over my dead body, you'd have to shoot me first".
He promised "something special" for Ferrari's 70th anniversary next year, and also said that Ferrari should cut the amount of limited run special models it does to preserve their exclusivity and ensure they remain "unpredictable".
Ferrari also has no plans to reduce the capacity and add turbochargers to its flagship V12 engine. "It's an important part of our brand," said Marchionne.
He added that Ferrari would make no more than 8000 cars in 2016, and part of the firm's flotation would involve developing the non-car luxury side of the brand, although Marchionne said he didn't know what direction this would take yet.
