PostHeaderIcon Ferrari Still Hesitant On Bringing Dino Name Back

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised why Ferrari lost the “Testarossa” name after all. In somewhat similar circumstances, the Italian automaker has another nameplate that it hasn’t used for quite some time, and the internal debate on possibly bringing said name back shows that not everyone in Ferrari is keen on using past names, no matter how popular or nostalgic they may be. I am, of course, referring to the “Dino,” which has been in numerous rumors in recent years for one reason or another, including the thought of bringing the name back for an entry-level model that will slot below the California T.

It’s worth noting though that rumors about a Dino revival have been going on for the better part of the last decade. These aren’t new whispers we’re hearing because the return of the Dino nameplate has been bubbling in the surface of rumor mills since 2008 when it was believed that the model would make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, and then later at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Nothing came out of it, and subsequent rumors in 2012 and 2015 amounted to nada either. Fast forward to 2017 and there’s still a lot of debate about what to do with the name. Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne isn’t too keen on the idea of seeing a “new” Dino because he believes it might have a negative impact on the brand’s image. His sentiments are reportedly echoed by some within Maranello, but there are also others who are in favor of dusting off the name because of its nostalgic ties to Ferrari. Either way, a decision is expected to come when Ferrari lays out its next five-year plan, which could take place in the first quarter of 2018.

PostHeaderIcon Is This The Long Rumored Ferrari Dino We've All Been Waiting For?

Back in the late 1960s, Ferrari decided it wanted to create an “affordable” lineup of vehicles, ones that would be able to take on vehicles like the Porsche 911, and the Dino name – which honored Alfredo “Dino” Ferrari – was born. The idea was that the Dino name would be used on non-V-12-powered vehicles, while the V-12 models would continue under the Ferrari name. Between 1968 and 1976, Ferrari launched a few different “Dino” models, including the Dino 206 GT, Dino 246 GT and GTS, and the Dino 308 GT4 2+2. In 1976, the Dino name was discontinued in favor of the Ferrari name. More recently rumors have been flying that the Dino would make a return, and in mid-2015, Sergio Marchionne even stated that Ferrari would bring back the nameplate – it wasn’t a question of if, but when. It’s been a long time coming, and we’ve seen what looked to be a 458-mule testing back in late 2015, but since then the trail has gone cold. Until this morning, that is, when we received a new set of spy shots that could very well be the V-6 powered Dino the world has been waiting for.

Like the mule we saw in late 2015, this mule is also based on the 458, but it’s sporting a cue or two that hint at this being the real McCoy. As such, the pictures you see here could very well be the proof we’ve been waiting for. Is the Dino program back on track after going cold more than a year ago? Well, keep reading to learn more about it.

PostHeaderIcon 2016 Mecum Auction Indianapolis – Recap

The History of Mecum Auctions goes back to 1988 at the Rockford Airport, where the first Mecum Auction was held. Over the last 28 years, Mecum has grown tremendously, now being ranked No. 1 in the U.S. for collector cars offered at auction, collector cars sold at auction, total dollar volume of sales, and the largest number of auction venues. On top of that, it has become the host of the world’s largest collector car auction that is hosted every year in Florida.

This last week, Mecum hosted an auction in Indianapolis, Indiana at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. This year there was a total of 1,859 lots that included plenty of collector cars, a few gas pumps, some neon signs, and even a few coin-operated kid rides. The big news from this auction, however, was the pair of Shelby Cobras that broke seven digits before the hammer dropped and a few other classics that are well worth taking an extra look at.

We’ve taken the time to cover the biggest sellers from the auction as well as a few of those that didn’t sell at all. There was even a 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Pro Stock that got as high as $750,000 but didn’t get quite high enough to cross that thin reserve line. That was just one of many that didn’t sell, and those two Shelby Cobras weren’t the only models that found new owners last week. So, let’s take a look at a few of the most notable vehicles that went under the hammer last week.


PostHeaderIcon Top Ferrari Exec Strongly Hints The Arrival Of A Fifth Model

Ferrari appears to be closer than ever to bringing back the Dino nameplate after the automaker’s Far East Hub CEO, Dieter Knechtel, essentially let the cat out of the bag during an appearance at the Australian Grand Prix. Speaking with The Motor Report, Knechtel all but confirmed Ferrari’s plan to offer “another model after the California in the GT segment.”

That was actually Knechtel’s exact quote, which is as strong an indication as anything Maranello has said in the past about the status of a new model that would line up beside the California T as a co-entry-level model, for a lack of a better term. Until now, Ferrari has been coy about the supposedly new sports car but Knechtel’s comments does open the door for all the speculation surrounding the Dino’s return.

Granted, Knechtel didn’t exactly drop a bomb of sorts in actually confirming the new model, but given Ferrari’s recent acceptance of downsized engines and its new-found willingness to use turbochargers in order to abide by stricter emissions regulations, a go-between GT model makes a lot of sense.

What’s still unclear is where this model will sit. Some have said that it would depose the California T as Ferrari’s entry-level model. Reports that it would use a turbocharged V-6 engine back that up since the California already utilizes a turbo V-8 that pumps out 550 horsepower. On the flip side, there are also whispers that the model would actually slot in between the 550-horsepower California T and the 660-horsepower 488 GTB. Either way, both scenarios give Ferrari another “affordable” model to balance out its entire lineup.

Expect to hear more about the status of this “will they or won’t they” Ferrari soon. Everybody seems to have an opinion on it now, including those within Maranello’s brain trust.

PostHeaderIcon Collection Of Eight Ferraris Worth More Than $11 Million Heading To Auction

Collecting classic vehicles is quite an expensive hobby if you fancy exotic sports cars, but nothing can drain your multi-million-dollar bank account quicker than a Ferrari collection. As a renowned Ferrari collector and long-time customer, Tony Shooshani knows this better than anyone else, having amassed a Prancing Horse stable that includes some of the rarest models ever built. After years of buying them, Shooshani has now decided to part with eight of his Ferraris, all of which will be auctioned by Gooding & Company at its annual two-day Scottsdale Auctions between January 29-30, 2016.

If you were planning to start your own Ferrari collection, now is as good a time as any. Given you have at least $11 million to spare, that is!

The lot includes some of finest Ferrari supercars ever produced, as well as a couple of classic entry-level models that can still be had for less than one million bucks. The most expensive units are a 1995 F50 and a 2003 Enzo, which are estimated to fetch more than $2.5 million each. There is also a 1990 F40 that Gooding & Company estimates will fetch between $1.3 and 1.6 million.

Classic models include a 250 GT Cabriolet and a 250 GT Lusso, which, not surprisingly, are likely to change owners for more than $2 million. At the more affordable end of the list, there’s a 1969 Dino 206 GT ($700,000-$800,000), a 1984 512 BBi ($400,000-$475,000), and a 1988 328 GTS ($125,000-$150,000).

All told, the estimated value of the entire lot sits between $11.6 and $13.5 million. That’s a lot of dough if you’re not familiar with how much classic Ferraris fetch nowadays, but not that much considering that a 250 GTO can change owners for as much as $50 million.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari Dino

The Dino brand, created by Ferrari for models with engines with fewer than 12 cylinders, spanned from 1968 to 1976, and included cars such as the iconic 246 GTS. Now it looks like Ferrari is going to resurrect the name for an entry-level sports car. Rumors about Ferrari planning to develop a V-6-powered sports car have been flying around for some years now. It took Maranello a lot to admit such a model is underway, but Sergio Marchionne finally came clean in June 2015, telling Autocar that a V-6 Ferrari is “not a question of if but when.” Two months have passed since then and our spy photographers caught a 458-based mule in the wild. According to them, the car didn’t sound like the usual V-8. What’s more, the mule was followed by a 488 that didn’t sound like it was using a turbocharged V-8 either, but rather the turbo V-6 used in the newly revealed 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia QV.

Could this mean that Ferrari is finally testing the sports car that will revive the Dino nameplate? This seems to be the likely scenario, especially since the 458 mule sports a number of features hinting toward a new exterior design and a different powerplant.

Of course, we’re nearly three years away from seeing the real deal in the metal and it will probably take at least 12 months until we get to see a pre-production body on that mule, but that won’t stop me from speculating what this Ferrari might bring to the market. Keep reading for the full details.

Updated 09/02/2015: Based on the recent spy shots and rumors we created a rendering for the upcoming Ferrari Dino. We hope you like it!

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari Dino Will Return As V6-Powered Sports Car

This one might be a little difficult for some people to accept. Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne has stated in no uncertain terms that Ferrari would be bringing back the Dino nameplate, complete with a V6 engine. Ferrari has obviously done this before, but this time the car won’t be a sub-brand, this will be a full-on Ferrari with prancing-horse badges and everything. Marchionne has also stressed that this was not a move to greatly expand production or introduce a new price point. The engine is likely to be a relatively small one, breathing with the aid of a pair of turbochargers.

Marchionne hinted at this being a 500 horsepower car, from which we can draw a few conclusions. That’s the same amount of power as a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and with previous incarnations of the Dino having been small, mid-engined sports cars, it seems likely that the new Dino will be aimed at higher-performance versions of the 911 (much as the original was), as well as the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. Whether the Ferrari will be built to convert so easily into a track machine isn’t something we know yet, and will probably come down to whether Ferrari is willing to risk being shown up by a Porsche on the track.

PostHeaderIcon Report: Ferrari Dino Revival on the Cards

Ferrari Dino Revival

Every week we hear Porsche’s plots to bring out a super sports car that would beat Ferrari at their own game. This time, however, it’s the other way around. This time it’s Ferrari launching a model that would cause the 911 a serious headache. It’s an all-new version of the legendary Ferrari Dino with a twin-turbo V6 engine.

Ferrari Dino is one of the most nostalgic models made by the Italian car maker in the 60s in honor of Enzo’s son who died very young. It was produced in 206 and 246 S and GT variants with a shape that is now considered to be one of the most iconic car designs of all time. The new Dino would boast a modern-interpretation of the same looks.

According to Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne who spoke to Autocar, reviving the Dino has always been a question of ‘when’ and not ‘if’ for Ferrari, and the time now seems ripe to start working on the project. Mind you, the new Ferrari Dino wouldn’t be here until at least 2018. They are still trying to find place for it in the rather busy lineup Ferrari has these days. It could either replace the California or be produced alongside it as a completely new fifth model.

The powertrain proposed for the new Ferrari Dino is a twin-turbocharged V6 unit ideally located in the middle, sending 500+ horsepower to the rear wheels. The car is pitched as a sharp and agile sports car that would rival the likes of Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and it would have a price tag of around £150,000 or $230,000.
