Ferrari working on range of facelifted and new models

If recent rumours are to be believed Ferrari has a busy few years coming up with a whole host of new models planned.

Reports are circulating that Ferrari will present its new 458 Spider at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The 458 Spider will take the position of the discontinued 430 Spider in Ferrari’s range and will likely make use of a retractable hard-top.

Apparently a more powerful version of the 458 will appear in 2013, but in keeping with the lightweight model nameplates from the 360 Challenge Stradale to the 430 Scuderia, expect the new model to carry its own moniker. The Ferrari California is scheduled for a facelift in 2013, and the 458 Italia may also get a refresh in 2014, but considering the car just went on sale last year, that timeframe could prove incorrect.

The 599 GTB Fiorano is expected to be replaced next year. Its successor, code-named F152 is expected to keep the front/rear layout, but make use of direct injection in its V12 engine.

Additionally there are rumors that the successor to the range-topping 288 GTO, F40, F50 and Enzo will also arrive sometime next year. These changes will give Ferrari a fresh faced range of sports cars in the coming years.
