Fiat is now the owner of Ferrari and its got some plans already whipped up for its prized asset, the Ferrari line. Ferrari already currently has a total of six new model variants in the pipeline for debut over the next couple of years, but just didn’t have enough resources to fund the campaign. With Fiat’s new financial backup, the realization of these six Ferrari model variants will surely be seen in the market a few years from now.

Coming soon to 2011 will be the release of the open-top 458 Spider variant of the Ferrari 458. There will also be an all-new version of the top-of-the-line 612 Scaglietti, a four-seat grand tourer that will have a hybrid drivetrain. The new 612 has been codenamed F151 in preproduction form.

Later in 2012, Ferrari will launch a successor to the halo Enzo hypercar. The new Enzo is likely to be powered by either a direct-injection twin-turbo V8 or a direct-injection twin-turbo V6. Nice, a V6 Ferrari, who would have thought. Also, due in the same year is an all-new version of the 599 GTB Fiorano with code named as F152.

A major facelift of the California Ferrari M will the lauched in 2013, which is currently called the California M. Another final new model revealed by Ferrari today is a hardcore track version of the 458, which should take the Scuderia name of its 430 predecessor and be launched in 2013.

Ferrari wants to keep the differentiation between its sports cars and its grand tourers. This is to ensure that there won’t be any crossover between the 458 and 599 supercars and the 612 and California cruisers, which translates that there won’t be any more than four standard production models.
