A single tweet this week may have delivered the latest hint that Ferrari will at last launch a new turbocharged V6-powered model in the next few years.

Ferrari already builds six-cylinder engines for stablemate Maserati, and the company has long been expected to adapt its new V6 F1 racing technology for its road cars.

Now, a post on social network Twitter by a writer with US magazine Motor Trend suggests that a new turbocharged entry-level Ferrari will arrive in 2019.

Citing an unnamed source at Ferrari, the writer said the new twin-turbo V6 supercar is being developed to more directly challenge the new AMG GT and McLaren’s recently revealed 570S - both driven by twin-turbo V8 engines.

Porsche’s six-cylinder 911 Turbo S also represents an obvious rival for the new Ferrari.

A 2019 debut would also position the new Ferrari as a replacement for the turbocharged V8-powered California T, which is expected to bow out around that time.

As for its underpinnings, Ferrari would likely look to the platform currently being developed for Maserati’s new sports car, based on the Alfieri concept revealed last year.

That car, a front-engined offering, is also expected to be driven by V6 engines.

The new Ferrari’s name? Reports have long suggested that Ferrari has plans to revive the lauded Dino, in spirit if not in name, and this new scoop could be the first sign of its coming.

Stay tuned for more details to surface over the coming years.
