Ferrari apparently worked through nine design concepts for its LaFerrari supercar recently shown at the Geneva Motor Show, and has put two of them on display at its museum in Maranello, Italy. Both from 2011, the Manta (pictured) is harder edged and looks closest to the finished product.

The other, the Tensostruttura, is much more fluid and looks like it probably came from the past or the future, not so much the present. You can check them both out in the videos below and register your take on what might have been.

      Ferrari only screwed up in one part. Naming this beauty a LaFerrari.

      The LaFerrari (ugh, the name) does give off an amateurish Art School end-of-term project feel. Now we have confirmation.

      The Tensostrattura is far more what I'd expect a supercar to look like. It would have been a worthy successor to the Enzo. And I agree, the name LaFerrari is rediculous. It's worse than the Camaro taillights on the new Corvette.

      Every time I read "LaFerrari" I think of Luigi for Disney Cars... What?... I have kids.

      Its not a car most people will ever get to lay eyes on, let alone drive. Still i find LaFerrari to be a boastful, boring model whose highest praises come only from Ferrari themselves. LaFerrari is hands down the most tacky name I've probably ever heard of.

        How can a model be both boastful and boring? Also it's a Hypercar, they are meant to be boastful, and I am sure that sales won't be minimally affected by your scathing (sounding awefully like sour grapes) judgement on a car you have neither seen nor driven. The name is rather unfortunate, I think there was a meeting after too much vino at lunch on that.

      The Tensostruttura is far more in line with my taste than the actual LaFerrari. The Manta is neither here nor there, really. I'm curious as to how those buying the actual car feel. Do they truly like the design, or are they buying simply because it is the newest, best Ferrari independent of aesthetics? Shame that it's probably the latter.

      Good to see the armchair designers out in force criticising this car. Shame Ferrari didn't have the benifit of their wisdom. This will surely mean this car will fail to sell and be a disaster for the company, already suffering from lack of success in the global automotive market! Quick call Maranello and save them!
