Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is selling off Ferrari!

http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2014/10/29/fiat-chrysler-to-spin-off-sports-car-brand-ferrari/?_php=true&_type=blogs&hpw&rref=automobiles&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=well-region&region=bottom-well&WT.nav=bottom-well&_r=0

Once this deal goes through, Alfa will emerge as FCA's premier high performance brand. No more having the performance of Alfas hobbled so they won't embarrass more expensive models from Ferrari, as the GTV6 often did to the 308.

That hasn't been as much of a problem in recent years as Ferraris have dramatically improved, but still Fiat has been careful not to let Alfa get too close to Ferrari performance when Alfa prices are so much lower.

Maybe for starters we could get a real motor in the 4C chassis?

Would have to be the stupidest move I've ever heard of. With Ferrari, FIAT have a license to simply print money and the best car brand in the world ... only an idiot would want to sell that!

In some ways I'm glad because the current chairman is a fool so this might save Ferrari but surely a strange decision ...
