We're anticipating a new Ferrari to be unveiled in a few months time at the Geneva Motor Show, but just what form – and arguably just as vitally, what technology – the new Prancing Horse will take has been the subject of much rumor and conjecture as of late.

Based on Ferrari chief Luca di Montezemolo's reported pronouncement that his company is preparing "a very different new Ferrari" for the Swiss salon, initial reports speculated that a production-ready hybrid could be in the cards. But the latest reports seem to call that into question.

So if not a hybrid, what has Maranello got in store for us? Most reports point towards a replacement for the 612 Scaglietti, the company's flagship (if somewhat lackluster) four-seat GT. Others suggest a shooting brake two-door wagon, while yet others report that whatever debuts will incorporate the company's part-time all-wheel drive system, if not necessarily a hybrid drivetrain. The truth probably lies in the combination of several of these reports, if not all of them, but we'll just have to sit tight to see what will lie underneath the veil come March.

      auto sites love to use the word "shooting brake" Ad nauseam. especially on cars that arent even what a shooting brake is suppose to be.

      The best way to increase the contact patch with the road is to increase the number of tires capable of receiving power. If you have near twice the contact patch it will take near twice the amount of torque before grip is lost. More torque to the road means better acceleration.

      I don't really care whether it's a 2+2, a shooting brake, or whatever; just PLEASE make it better looking than the 612!!

      In Tierra del Fuego province, located in the argentinian Patagonia, South America, Ferrari was testing in past September - October a four wheel drive system in a 612 Scaglietti test mule, confirmed by the test drivers at the time in a quick conversation.

      What's with Autoblog's recurrent wet dreams of shooting brakes? Your preoccupation is worse than a teenage boy's on Megan Fox; and your fantasy is no more likely to come true.
