New Rendering Shows What the Ferrari Purosangue Would Look Like With Lots of Roma Styling
Ferrari’s first SUV is happening whether we like it or not. Maranello is poised to give the Urus a run for its money with a high-riding vehicle, the so-called Purosangue. Little is known about Ferrari’s first (and hopefully last) attempt to attract SUV-loving clients, which means pixel manipulators around the world have had a lot of leeway in coming up with their vision on what the Purosangue could look like.
Of that bunch, Laco Design came forward a pair of renderings that take a stab at guessing a potential design avenue Ferrari might or might not take with the Purosangue, opting to bake in a handful of styling cues seen on Ferrari’s stunningly elegant 2020 Roma supercar.

Porsche and Ferrari aren’t necessarily renowned for their family friendly wagons, yet both actually offer such models in their lineup. Ferrari has the GTC4Lusso, a shooting brake with space for four, while Porsche has given us the Panamera Sport Turismo, an actual four-door estate with practicality to match its performance.
Does This Rendering of the Ferrari Purosangue Make You Feel Happy or Mad?
An online artist has released a rendering of the Ferrari Purosangue, or at least a rendering of the SUV’s rear section. The rendering doesn’t reveal the front end of the highly anticipated SUV, but this is one of the first renderings we’ve seen of Ferrari’s future SUV. Speculation surrounding the design of the Purosangue is at an all-time high after the Italian automaker confirmed plans to join the super-luxury SUV market. This rendering is not a sign of things to come, but it does point to what we can expect when the real Purosangue arrives.
Ferrari Will Take on the Lamborghini Urus with a Hybrid SUV
This news may not appeal to the purists but will surely grab attention. Earlier this year, Ferrari confirmed an SUV is in works and will be arriving in 2019 or 2020. Now it is being reported it will use a hybrid system. Are we ready for a silent SUV from a company known for its engine notes? Read on for more details.
Ferrari SUV Talks Heat Up As the Debate On Quantity Begins
If you didn’t believe it before, you need to start believing now. The Ferrari SUV is happening as CEO Sergio Marchionne himself confirmed to Bloomberg that it’s not a question of “if” anymore as it is “when” it’s going to happen. Marchionne added that the Italian automaker is “dead serious” about its SUV plans. That’s a step further from his past comments when he only mentioned the possibility of a Ferrari SUV as something that will “probably happen.”
The talk within Ferrari now moves on to the next phase of the SUV project: production. Marching didn’t elaborate on the specifics of the SUV, or as he calls it, the “FUV.” Instead, we learned that the Italian automaker will spend the next 30 months - two-and-a-half years - discussing the production volume of the model. Seeing as this is Ferrari, don’t expect the final number to be high since the company wants to preserve its status of exclusivity. Tacking a production volume in the high four or five digits would run counter to that position so at best, we can expect somewhere in the neighborhood of 2,000 units, give or take. For now, Ferrari’s concern is how it plans to strike a balance between exclusivity and scarcity, something it plans to address when it rolls out its new five-year plan in the first quarter of 2018. That plan should reveal more information about the Ferrari SUV and all other models that will create the company’s lineup in the next decade.
