The FF is quite a departure for Ferrari - it's the company's first hatchback and all-wheel-drive vehicle - so it isn't surprising that it rubs some people the wrong way, even if the car itself is very good. Well, judging from these patent drawings of what looks like a FF coupe filed with the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM), Ferrari has plans to build one.

We're not sure if Ferrari is planning a production run, however, and it's very possible this is a one-off special being built for a very rich customer, a la Eric Clapton and his 458 Italia. Patent drawings of Clapton's special 458 were filed with OHIM before it was finished, as well.

We think the regular FF is a good-looking car as is, but would welcome a coupe version if it looked like the one in these drawings. It could be a great alternative to the F12 Berlinetta for people who want all-wheel drive and a lower profile.

      I don\'t think this necessarily means that Ferrari will make a FF coupe but it\'s a good idea to protect the concept before someone else steals it.

      Apart from the AWD, what would and FF Coupe do for that wouldn't be better done by an F12?

      I have to agree with the others - it seems much more likely this is a California replacement, and I, for one, will be very sad to see it come to pass. The people here who accuse the current car of being "bulbous" or imitating Jaguar's "XK" know absolutely nothing about cars. The California is a modern interpretation of the the 250 GT California Spyder, a vehicle that I might note predated the XKE, arguably the XK's spiritual successor by several years. Furthermore, the XK is more accurately described as a wholesale ripoff of the Aston Matin DB7, a shape that one-dimensional designer Ian Callum simply tore out of his notebook at Aston and dropped on the desk of his Jaguar overlords with barely a single line altered. If I had the money to spend on a new Ferrari today, I can tell you unquestionably that it would be on the California. It is a beautiful car that has the striking profile of an athletic coupe, but with four seats, a retractable hardtop, a trunk pass-through, relatively good fuel economy, does 0-62 in 3.8 seconds, has near perfect weight distribution, is heavy enough that you could actually step out the rear end on a spirited mountain drive (step out an F12 or 458 on public roads and you'll soon know the mysteries of the afterlife) and all for $50,000 less than its nearest stablemate and $150,000 less than the current flagship. What's not to like? It's the Ferrari that does it all and all for less money. To say nothing of the fact that it's the only prancing pony that wasn't drawn to look like a binned character reject from a Pixar movie.

      If this is the California then wow, what a downgrade. No longer gorgeous, just angular, bizarre, and ugly now. -_-

      this is definitely the new california, you can see the hard top split in the drawings and the 3 slashes above the front wheel well give it away.... i think the car will be gorgeous when its done. big upgrade from the current california.

      What the FF should've looked like

      Huh - the front and rear styling does look FF - but it looks to me like the wheelbase is shorter and the flanks are completely different. If it were the next California wouldn't it have the hood scoop? Maybe not I suppose... And it seems a bit conservative to be a one off custom for some super wealthy customer. Regardless - it is a nice looking car. Glad they skipped the unusual "split" rear end treatment of the Berlinetta. It would make a nice successor to the California.

      i love the FF just like it is.. the way the window treatment between b-c pillars closes is all wrong. it's like they wanted some retro, but it does not match the rest of the car... looks forced.

      I don't know man , if Ferrari got rid of FF's shooting brake looks, it will be just another 575 , 599 , 612 & F12.
