Default Ferrari Four-Door Coupe

Rendered Speculation: Ferrari Four-Door Coupe

The designers on cardesign.ru have presented a series of renderings in the past. They have included the next generation Mazda3 and a rendition of the potential Renault Alpine.

Now a designer on the Russian site has taken the bold step in creating a bunch of illustrations depicting what a Ferrari four-door supercar may look like. There is most likely very little chance that Ferrari would create a model like this, but with the Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche Panamera on the horizon plus the Lamborghini Estoque Concept making its debut in just a few days, the four-door supercar could be the latest trend for super car makers.

Great find Hanmust.
The car looks stunning in this form the only down side is the rear. Since this is only a concept yet and would take time to get to the actual floor they would work things out. Atleast this looks better than the Porsche. I definately would put my money into this baby.

So now all Supercar manufacturers will scramble to make 4 door Coupes. I cant wait for the Lotus Elise 4 door!! Or maybe, the Pagani Zonda 4 door!!

Thank you all. Considering the tight competition from the rivals, I strongly believe that Ferrari will consider this design study. Lets hope for the best.

I don't know if anyone noticed hints of a the raging bull in the rear design. Tch tch, this isn't even a concept,

"Now a designer on the Russian site has taken the bold step in creating a bunch of illustrations depicting what a Ferrari four-door supercar may look like. There is most likely very little chance that Ferrari would create a model like this."

Boy, am I glad.

This is just someones imagination gone wild. Glad it is just that. I am sure if Ferrari joins the 4-door bandwagon the implementation will be much more pleasant.

Four-door coupe ???

Isn't that an oxymoron?

Either way - im not too thrilled about the design or the renders of this one, though it does look more ferrari than the estoque looks lamborghini!

Thankfully, Ferrari has promised that there will be no four door from their side.

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo:- "We will never do a four-door."
Amen!

Sharp curves, round curves, sharp edges, round edges and scoops galore. So many design elements. What a design disaster. No where close to clean Ferrari lines.

I pray to god that the actual design be far away from the renderred design. Though the design looks stunning, it does not have the ferrari touch, it is too sharp for me.

Going by contemporary Ferrari designing this does not look Ferrari to me.

Cheers,
AC
