Pininfarina and Ferrari have had an intertwined relationship for decades, and according to a report from Reuters, the families are set to intermarry. Piero Ferrari, Enzo's son, is expected to join three other "prominent figures of the Italian automotive industry" that will take a stake in Pininfarina. The news comes shortly after Tata announced plans to throw some money into the Italian design house, which includes a 100 million euro stake in the firm. Part of that cash infusion will help to create the new electric car Pininfarina is developing with Bollore, while simultaneously reducing the shares that the Pininfarina family currently holds.

      "Ferrari's son"??

      That doesn't make any sense....

        Piero is Enzo's illegitimate son, made 'whole' sometime later. Enzo even gave him 10-percent of the business, back in the 1980s IIRC.

      I'm looking forward to seeing more of Pininfarina's work.Especially on the new Tata Jags.
