Click above for a gallery of Ferrari's Project F149.

With the debut of the Ferrari 149 GT California (or something like that) just around the corner, new shots of the Ferrari mule have surfaced at Autogespot, revealing a few more details about the entry-level Fezza. Unlike some spy pics we've seen that obscure everything from the B-pillar back, these newest images show a steeply raked rear windscreen that terminates into an artificially elongated trunk, rumored to house a folding hard top. The front clip is sporting a large radiator intake and the hood stretches back in true Ferrari style. As reported before, Project F149 is rumored to be powered by a 4.7-liter V8 producing 480 to 500 hp. More details are expected soon. We're standing by.

      Looks like a Nissan GT-R crossed with a Vette.

      Not a bad thing, just an observation.

      If any body here knows anything about marketing you will realize it is a Corvette.
      GM realized that most people are very critical of the Corvette so they made a deal with Ferrari to actually build the Vette, but they will call it a Ferrari. That way all the car nut magazines and car nuts will scream how wonderful the new Ferrari is. But GM will know that it is really a Corvette.
      Well something like that.

        Why in God's name would Ferrari feel the need to partner with Chevy? Ferrari's inital problem with slating a car below the F430 was tarnishing the value of the brand. A Chevy-Ferrari cumulative effort would only compund that effect. This whole idea kind of contradicts your exlamation of your vast knowledge of marketing. Somebody needs to go back to B-school...

      Anyone know the projected price. I am thinking a V8Vantage rival or is this car right under the price of the F430?

      I hope that the production model looks like the one on the cover of the June Road & Track. These Photo-Illustrations, created by Larson, represent the best looking Ferrari since the F355.

      I WAS joking.

      LOL....Chevy called. They want their Corvette design back.

      --Don't take my comment the wrong way. I'm not being critical. A lot of sporty cars have this general shape.

      But you have to admit, the likeness is pretty glaring.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yes, another copy cat. Maybe this is that Chery Chinese companies sports car, just kidding. Seriously, the Ferrari Daytona has always had a resemblance to a Corvette similar to how BMW has Pontiac grills.

      da hell.... Corvettes and Ferraris borrow designs from each other. The only time the Corvette has been acused of borrowing designs from a lowly rx7 was the C4 and it looked nothing like the rx7....Mazda wish Corvette borrowed cues from them....what a joke
        • 6 Years Ago
        The c4? You mean the one they wanted to put a rotary into?...haha. Go look at the 3rd generation rx7 and the c5 Corvette, they share a ton of design cues. I'm sorry to compare your might American car to some "lowly" Japanese.

        All cars share design elements. ALL
        • 6 Years Ago
        "lowly RX-7"? Many car enthusiasts still think the FD is one of the more elegant and striking car designs around, especially considering what else was in production when it debuted. Can you name any early '90s cars you think looked better? (excluding supercars like the XJ220, please; that's obviously a different category)
        • 6 Years Ago
        I completely agree with you. There's only so many things you can do with a car design to make it both appealing to the eye, current social climate and practical to produce. So naturally some cars are going to share the same design cues. Just give up saying "omgzors this looks like every other car ever made by every company on the face of the planet since forever!!1!zors!one"
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'm gonna get flamed for my car ignorance and I'm not an aficionado of either car but I thought the Vette "borrowed" design cues from Ferrari?

      Anyways, I like both brands. :)

        Corvette designers admitting stealing a lot of elements from the 3rd generation rx7
      • 6 Years Ago
      Wow. It looks like all the other Ferraris!

      Italian cars are boring ::yawn::
