Oh, if we only had an apartment in Maranello overlooking Ferrari's private Fiorano test track. We think we'd get used to the noise of V12 exotics and formula racecars screaming at all hours for the chance to see what the Prancing Horse was working on. This time, an intrepid photographer snapped some shots of a disguised test mule running development laps around the circuit, betraying what could be the anticipated entry-level 2+2 GT the factory's spokespeople have been denying so vehemently.

Rumor has it the car under all that body cladding is running a 450hp direct-injection V8 in a body about 20 inches shorter than the Nimitz-class 612 Scaglietti. The car is expected to be unveiled as the GT California at the Paris show later this year, but we have a feeling we'll be hearing more about it before then.

      the concept illustration looks really cool...and it'll be almost too good if they trimmed a few inches off all sides before they start drawing comparisons to 50's Eldorados.

      That's a cute Illustration.

      Well anything with a Prancing Horse will be a winner.

      Horrendous as a mule, or the render?

      If you say the render, you need a serious good slapping upside the head.

      I think the term "entry-level Ferrari" belongs in the same category as jumbo shrimp and virtual reality.

      Ehm... if I recall Ferrari had announced that they would be producing a hardtop convertible some point down the line... perhaps this is it ?

      Good god that thing looks horrendous. But this is great news.

      No, no, they can't use the name GT California on anything but a Spider!

      Is nothing sacred!
