Spy Images of the 2015 Ferrari California Replacement Spotted
|   Thursday, January 02, 2014
Ferrari has almost finished testing its California replacement and this vehicle was spotted testing on various occasions without any major camouflage. This vehicle is expected to be officially showcased at the Geneva Motor Show, early next year. Ferrari plans on bringing in turbo charged engines officially into its lineup with this vehicle hence we can expect future vehicles from Ferrari to sport turbo charging.

This vehicle will draw power from a twin turbo charged 3.
liter V8 engine displacing 552 BHP, which will be used in Maserati's latest lineup, including its Ghibli and Quattroporte. However, minor work is left on this vehicle and this is evident from its test mules. Pre orders are open at exclusive Ferrari dealers although its first lot should arrive by May 2014. Exterior styling on the new Coupe has been heavily inspired from Ferrari's F12, even though this vehicle should have its characteristic features distinguishing both vehicles.

Its front end draws heavy design cues while its head lamps are inspired by Ferrari's 458 Italia. Even though this vehicle has various aspects lifted off previous models, it is a new creation and feels that way from every aspect too. Dimensions have been altered and this car has been lowered while its rear end has been reduced too. This enhances traction control and aerodynamics which as a result is bound to enhance performance.

Although Ferrari will never manufacture products for the mass market, (according to top level management) it aims on being fuel efficient to attract more customers. Ferrari chose to keep the California's retractable hard top while adding some clever lines to its side and rear. Minor modifications to its interior were also spotted such as an upgraded sound system along with a redesigned dash board.

Ferrari manufactured 500 units of its California on an annual basis although they expect their replacement vehicle to do better. Production capacity will not be increased initially even though plans for expansion in future are present. No change in price is expected on its new model and this should push sales up during initial months. Inquiries have been high so far, Ferrari just needs to convert these to sales.
