Dinos, produced by Ferrari from 1968-1976, were strange birds, having been named for Enzo Ferrari’s son but not carrying a Ferrari badge, since they were considered too cheap and too slow for the Ferrari name. Still, a few thousand were built, with over 150 of those recently gathering in Maranello to celebrate Dino’s…
When you’ve already got a garage stocked with Ferrari’s greatest hits, each time you add something to the collection, it has to be interesting. This particular Dino, now packing more than 400 horsepower from an engine stolen from the famous F40 supercar, would qualify as interesting.
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.
According to a new report, there’s a decent chance that Ferrari is planning on selling a second “entry-level” model alongside the current California T. Are you going to say it? Fine, I’ll say it. Are they bringing the Dino name back?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
It could be argued that there's no such thing as a Ferrari that isn't special in some way. But even among Maranello's brightest creations, the "Ferrari" Dino 246 GT and GTS have a unique emotional connection to the company's founder.
There was a time when nobody really wanted a Ferrari Dino 308 GT4. Collectors looked down on it because at first, it wasn't badged as a "real" Ferrari. Those people were wrong. The Dino 308 GT4 is amazing.

Last week, the automotive world lost one of its best and brightest minds as Sergio Pininfarina died in Turin, Italy at the age of 85.
These photos, taken in February, 1978, show a Dino 246 GTS being unearthed from the front yard of a home in Los Angeles. The photos have been making the rounds online for years. But what's the real story? How'd the Dino wind up underground, and where is it now?
The 1980 movie Insatiable is one of the classics of cinematic pornography. Thirty years on, it raises strange questions about the longevity of porn versus that of ‘70s Ferraris. Here, in all its big budget and completely SFW glory, is Marilyn Chambers driving a black Dino for several helicopter-shot minutes.
Architect Steve Hermann calls his "Glass Pavilion" home in Montecito, California his opus. The nearly-impossible looking cantilevered structure is mostly open air, but the basement "art gallery" is walnut columns and vintage cars. Ferrari Dino? Mercedes 300SL? Excellent taste, sir.
Speaking of Ayrton Senna, look how Japan’s elite sports cars have grown over the years, with Nissan's modern GT-R towering over the Honda NSX which Senna helped develop.
Combine a garden party at an exclusive London club with some of the most exotic supercars ever, add a dash of people with over-hyphenated names and you've got London's Salon Privé.

Ferrari welcomed us all a little bit early to the Hotel California, and yes, it's a lovely place. In fact, check out the lovely face on the new 2009 Ferrari California just to see if we're wrong.

With just under 8 days until the official reveal of the new Ferrari GT, our anticipation keeps rising as the countdown clock keeps ticking. These new shots show off the camouflaged rear end of the upcoming stallion, an angle we haven't seen much of. Interesting to note are the vertically stacked tailpipes, something…
We just told you about the new sound clips released of the soon coming Ferrari GT, but since some of you may be using some sort of strange internet browser that inhibits you from listening at Ferrari GT Countdown, we figured you'd like it if we provided you with the teaser clips here. Like we said, it's gonna be a…
