There are rumblings within the auto industry that Ferrari may have a surprise vehicle that the company is planning to unveil at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.

A report coming out of OmniAuto has suggested that a “green” Ferrari California could be headed to Paris to make its world debut. Nothing has been made official yet, but the word is that, contrary to the ‘green’ tag it’s being described in, the car isn’t being classified as a hybrid. The description used for this vehicle claims it to be something along the lines of a sports car that will come with a number of features similar to the Vettura Laboratorio HY-KERS concept that was unveiled earlier this year.

There’s no denying that a ‘green’ approach is something that Ferrari has long spurned on, but even Ferrari President Luca di Montezomolo has admitted that due to the implementation of stricter government standards, the Italian-based company is beginning to adhere to the new regulations by improving fuel efficiency by 30% while, at the same time, cutting down on emissions by 40%.

With these new regulation requirements on the back of everybody’s mind these days, the idea of seeing a “green” Ferrari out on the streets has turned from highly improbable to a distinct possibility.
