Ferrari is planning a range of new cars to rejuvenate its sports car family - including a new 458 Scuderia, a replacement 599 GTB and a hypercar to replace the Enzo.
A report by respected automotive industry journal Automotive News today published a detailed timeline of the new car launches planned by Maranello:
458 Spider Launched at the 2011 Frankfurt motor show, retractable hard top. European sales in autumn 2011
458 Scuderia Coming in 2013, following recipe of 430 Scuderia. A refresh for the whole 458 family is due in 2014
