The Italian Supercar is not holding back on it projections.
Ferrari forecast to 2X core earnings to 2-B Euros ($2.5-B) no later than 2022 and become debt free a year earlier, betting on racy demand for its Supercars, HyperSuper cars, and new launches, including a planned FUV and EV.
The SUV has been all but officially announced as CEO Sergio Marchionne has teased details on previous earnings conference calls and more recently at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
With over 9,000 vehicles expected to be sold in Y 2018, all of them high priced luxury sports cars, supercars, or hypercars, the Ferrari utility vehicle, or FUV as we call it, has the potential to greatly increase the company’s annual output.
