A Station Wagon along the Ferrari Pipeline?

This may be quite a shock to some die-hard Ferrari fans, but Ferrari is preparing an estate version of one of their cars for the Geneva Motor Show in March this year. It is said to be based on the 612 Scaglietti and it is meant to give the mighty 612 one last hurrah before production ceases as the model is approaching the end of its life at Maranello.

This is not the first time Ferrari has tried to put their heads together to make an estate version of one of their cars. They've tried it before to satisfy their wealthy Middle-Eastern customers and the Sultan of Brunei who bought a 456 GT based Pininfarina designed shooting brake. This design has been taken care of by Fiat Group design boss and ex-Pininfarina head Lorenzo Ramaciotti and the sudden decision to create this estate V12 model (which has not been officially named yet) is apparently to 'see how far Ferrari can stretch its brand away from traditional supercars', in other words, ruining it!! I cannot believe that Ferrari, the marque that has steered clear of being a practical supercar for donkey years now has finally joined the bandwagon of Maserati, Porsche, and Aston Martin to create something 'practical' for the 'family man' who still wants to drive fast and have all that 'look at me!' attention seeking idiocy. Frankly I think it looks nothing like a Ferrari should, even though this is just an early render from AutoExpress, but it just looks so confused. A bit of a California, the grille of a 612, shaped like a 612 but with the back of a Punto! If this is meant to be the 612's successor, I think it'll be a massive failure.

Who knows, the Panamera looks hideous but its selling like hotcakes. I wonder why. I guess Ferrari still has hope!
