The Ferrari GTC4Lusso is unique in the range of the Italian manufacturer. Amid a sea of mid-engined two-seater monsters and V12 grand touring machines spinning the rear wheels, it’s the practical choice with a folding rear seat and a rear hatch that opens to 28 cubic feet. cargo space. All four wheels provide all-weather grip, and since this is a Ferrari, there’s a 680 horsepower V12 up front. But does he stick around?
We know Ferrari will soon be offering another practical choice with the Purosangue. This is the automaker’s first SUV, and while we don’t have anything official from Ferrari when it comes to details, it should at least live up to the GTC4Lusso in terms of performance. With four doors and a larger trunk, it should also be more practical and that makes people wonder if Ferrari is considering removing the GTC4Lusso from its lineup.
This rumor was refreshed by a recent social media post from a Ferrari dealership, according to The reader. The post claimed that a recently sold GTC4Lusso was their last, apparently suggesting that there were no more. Ferrari, however, reportedly refuted that claim, saying there was no change in the company’s lineup. We contacted Ferrari to confirm the report, but our messages were not immediately returned.
We also asked Ferrari if the GTC4Lusso will stick around once the Purosangue arrives. The SUV was originally thought to arrive next year, but with the coronavirus still a major threat around the world, delays until 2022 seem likely. If the GTC4Lusso does not return for 2021, it could leave a void in the practical choice of Ferrari for buyers, and that could explain why the automaker has reportedly said no range change is imminent. In reality, once the Purosangue arrives, it seems difficult to make a business case for keeping the GTC4Lusso.
We’ll update this story with a word from Ferrari when we get back to you.
