Ferrari Considering Sub-458 Model : News

What seemed like an impossible scenario a couple of years ago might become reality within the next twelve months, as Ferrari is reportedly working on an entry-level version of the 458 Italia. That’s the word coming from Automobile, which claims the Italians are set to introduce a twin-turbo, 2.9-liter, V-6 engine, and create a more efficient and less expensive sports car based on the popular 458.

Shocked? You should be. Last time Ferrari used a V-6 engine in a road-going car it was 1974 in the soon-to-retire Dino . Since then, all V-6 units have motivated Formula One cars exclusively. It happened from 1980 through 1988 before FIA reintroduced V-6 power units to the sport for the 2014 season.

Details are rather scarce, but such a move would make a lot of sense given the market’s current shift to smaller, more efficient units. So what’s Ferrari hoping to achieve by rolling out an entry-level 458 ? Skip past the jump to find out.
