For a few weeks now we’ve heard tons of rumors regarding Ferrari’s surprise model for the Geneva Motor Show, and we expect to hear a lot more until the officially unveiling. Today’s rumors suggest that the Italian brand will come to Geneva with a shooting brake concept based on the 612 Scaglietti, a preview version of their first ever estate model.

Although there is no name for this new model, Ferrari has announced that it has been created for two reasons: to see how far Ferrari can stretch its brand away from its traditional supercars, and to give the 612 Scaglietti a fitting send-off as the four-seat super coupé, launched in 2004, nears the end of its run. "We know there can never be a Ferrari SUV," one source insisted. "But we would like to find out what we can put the marque’s DNA into and still have it accepted as a Ferrari."

Something tells us that, when push comes to shove, Ferrari will find themselves in the SUV business just like Porsche did with their Cayenne model because, well, money talks. However, the focus for the time being will be this new shooting brake concept, which ties in just fine with the previous rumors of Ferrari bringing the successor for the 612 Scaglietti to Geneva.

We’ll see if this rumor holds water when the Geneva Show doors open on March 3rd.

I don’t think that its the Ferrari FF since it was based on 612 Scaglietti. I do wonder what is this version.

Recently, Ferrari have debuted a new version and Its called the Ferrari FF. I think this concept car is the current Ferrari FF. Its a nice car and i think it will make the competition in the market tougher.

Hope its better than rendering. Anyways, Ferrari shooting brakes is always ugly especially those in 612!

yeah right you can compare this shooting brake to a lady, the more sexy it is, the more man wanted to have it.

Unfortunately we will just have to wait until March to see what exactly Ferrari has up its sleeve.

The shooting brake is essentially a hatchback-based coupe. The design offers greater versatility for low slung two-doors and would make the four-seater 612 Scaglietti the most practical Ferrari yet.

Perhaps Ferrari will be testing the waters with the design, providing a glimpse of a possible design direction for the 612’s replacement and a solution for customers demanding a more practical supercar.

totally I agree, but there are no words about the performance of this baby such as top speed, torque, ponies and safety features.

that was an appealing car, I really love its rear end its just like a sexy model with perfect butt. dang I really want to have this on my garage..

I think Ferrari should build their SUV, otherwise they will always be just a small exclusive brand. If they want to expand their business they’d better launch a SUV, and whatever the clients want!

Enough with the exclusive mambo jumbo... this will get you bankrupt!

  (101) posted on 01.5.2011

I’d rather see the successor of the burning exploding Ferrari engines smiley

The bad thing about this model is that is moving Ferrari closer to Porsche in terms of external shape of the car

  (341) posted on 01.4.2011

well it’s just a two door hatchback so what’s amazing with it? is this the first time you see a ferrari Shooting Break?.
