I checked on the Ferrari models.
I was right(ish).
1990s/2000s there were typically 4 or max 5 models on offer at any one time. A V8 model, a V12 model, a GT and a Supercar.
For example - In the year 2000, you could buy a 360 in the V8 range, a 550 in the V12s and a 456 in the GT range. That was it. The F50 stopped production in 1997.
By 2005 you could buy 3 types of V8 (360, a Challenge Stradale and a 430), a 575 and a Superamerica in the V12s and a 612 in the GT range. On top of that you could bu an Enzo too at the top of the range.
Roll forward to today and you can choose from a 488, a Portofino and a GTC4 Lusso in V8, a 612 and an F60 in V12 (plus a V12 option for the GTC4), a La Ferrari, and something called an FXXKevo and a Monza in the "Icona" range!
I appreciate - in retrospect - how mind numbingly dull this post is but now I have bothered to type it I can't bring myself to delete it. I shall post it, but would appreciate if you could all just avert your eyes and scroll on past...... Nothing to see here
