Today Ferrari laid to rest rumors that it is developing a successor to the Dino, a so-called "cheap" Ferrari... sort of. In a nutshell, a member of management (who is that guy, anybody?) made it clear that the automaker is "not developing a cheap Ferrari." Whether that means the idea of a new Dino is dead or just that no Ferrari should ever be considered cheap is up for debate.

Our transcript of his remarks, deciphered through a thick Italian accent, can be read after the jump.

"There have been rumors about a Dino. I want to take this opportunity at the Los Angeles Auto Show to say that we are not developing a "cheap" Ferrari. Our ideal is to design and continue to perform in doing and manufacturing top level cars, high performances, and this is what we will continue to do."

      It's pleasure to have Ferrari and if you drive it you feel it more.
      One must have drive on Ferrari.

      I agree they don't want the dino to be seen as the poor relation to the others - its all about the prestige of the Ferrari badge. I know we would have no place for a Ferrari with a'cheap' image in our fleet, even if I wouldn't mind trying one myself!

      Who cares about a car that doesn't exist and would be too expensive for 95% of us anyway?

      More pictures of the Ferrari booth babe. Hello?!

      I care about cars too expensive for my pocket: I'm not that basic. I love automotive culture, and the best that it produces. It's stimulating and educative, in a plastic and in a technical sense.

      But if you really don't care for it, what are you doing commenting this article?

        The above thought is smart and doesn’t require any further addition.
        It’s perfect thought from my side.

      The Dino is probably still coming but Ferrari doesn't want it to be known as the "cheap" Ferrari so they're down playing it.
