Ferrari Is Still Considering A New Dino But Doesn't Want To, You Know, Look Cheap .
Ferrari is apparently still arguing with itself over bringing back the Dino as a new entry level sports car, but there’s hesitation over brand image. They don’t want to start to look cheap, you know, like Porsche. God forbid we ever have dreams of maybe someday being able to walk into a dealership and buy a brand new Ferrari Dino, even if it is the “least expensive” model.
