You can’t really talk about the supercar segment without talking about Ferrari, a prolific company that stands as a symbol of excellence and performance and has done so since the 1940s. Not only does the Italian automaker make some of the finest road cars on the planet, but unlike many other manufacturers, it also has a rich and storied motorsport history that is so colorful that no matter the type of competition, Ferrari is always the top brand that people want to be associated with. Although it has this rich pedigree, there are plenty of different types of Ferrari, some of which aim to be a little practical. And with a revised lineup for the future that includes an upcoming SUV model, Ferrari is becoming more popular as a luxury name than ever before. The automaker has a special connection with the USA too, sometimes producing exclusive Ferrari models for our market only. No matter what the price, rest assured that every single unit coming from Maranello is something exceptional.
Ferrari supercars are among the best in the world, and with numerous body styles, there’s a long list of options to choose from. The Ferrari lineup for 2020 and 2021 is exciting, but the future holds even more promise for the marque, as it looks to diversify and innovate with hybrid and all-electric technology. But before we get to the unknown, let’s see what the latest models are classified as.
First of all, Ferrari produces cars in one of three design styles:
But it’s not just about the shape of the automobile or whether the roof remains closed, Ferrari builds its products in two primary classifications:
Currently, you may choose from coupe options like the athletic F8 Tributo, the powerful 812 Superfast, the relatively practical 2+2 GTC4Lusso, and the 488 Pista, but 2021 models include exciting options like the stunning SF90 Stradale and the luxurious Roma. If you prefer the wind in your hair, choices include the Portofino M and the newest offering, the SF90 Spider; still, these inherently compromised drop-top machines are phenomenal to drive.
As you can well imagine, when looking at one of the best and most exciting carmakers on the planet, none of the Ferrari cars on sale right now are cheap, but the cost is well worth it. Each one features its own unique selling point, with the various types each aiming to serve up something different. At the moment, the current model year range is made up predominantly of two-seater coupes and convertibles, but there is a solitary four-seater still available and the future holds a Purosangue SUV too. Ferrari prices start at over $200,000, but some will have an MSRP that will set you back over half a million dollars. If you really want to throw money down the drain, there are also the Monza SP1 and Monza SP2 speedsters, but these are not street-legal in the US.

The most exciting new Ferrari at the moment is the SF90, available as either a coupe or convertible, but as extraordinary as this 2021 Ferrari iteration is, a new type of Ferrari vehicle is coming soon, and it’s one that will offend the purists but delight the most family-oriented buyers. This new car is not a car at all, but rather an SUV called the Purosangue, and it will soon join a specific niche of hyper-luxurious and ultra-expensive lifestyle cruisers. Its specs will make it one of the heaviest Ferraris ever, but it will also be one of the most-used Maranello machines too. As such, a new level of attention will be given to the reliability of Ferrari engines, and reviews and ratings will focus more on usability than performance - something that is not the norm for the marque.
