Check out out this quote from Amedeo Felisa, General Managing Director of Ferrari.

"For future performance - with increased efficiency and reduced emissions - the best answer is probably turbocharging and direct injection. That's our direction right now. I the past our goal was always higher power, higher speed. Now we go after efficiency as well, not more power at any cost."

True, the F40 is the exception, but Ferrari has stuck to naturally aspirated engines in modern times.

The winning formula of turbocharging AND direct injection (permitting high compression and the absence of turbo lag) was pioneered by VW/Audi, and Ferrari may follow in these footsteps (just like Chrysler is jumping into DSG technology).

We enjoy extremely cool and advanced technology in our cars, and it's nice to see other manufacturers following suit.

Ferrari following their lead? What lead? They've been turbocharging cars for awhile now. Hello F40.
