Ferrari: An Industry-Defining History

 

A post shared by Ferrari (@ferrari) on

Founded in 1939 by Enzo Ferrari as an extension of Alfa Romeo's racing division, yet finalized as an independent auto manufacturer in 1947, Ferrari has grown to become one of the most influential and important brands in the automotive industry - forging a path for supercar performance and unparalleled style. As the oldest racing team in Formula One, Ferrari's production vehicles are directly influenced by and designed from Ferrari's rich racing heritage. Despite its tumultuous history, and even a nearly completed acquisition by Ford, Ferrari has remained atop the automotive industry as a leading figure in design and performance.

Early Years

Founded by Enzo Ferrari to fund the Scuderia Ferrari racing division, Ferrari's production cars gradually grew to capture the luxury supercar segment with their impressive performance and unique styling. Having released models like the Ferrari 250 MM, Ferrari 250 GTO, Ferrari F333 SP, Ferrari F40 and Ferrari F50, the brand quickly became one of the most iconic manufacturers in the industry. With numerous models setting records left and right, the Ferrari brand has continually grown since its early, humble days as a mere racing division to one of the most respected and renowned brands regardless of industry.

Evolution

While 50-percent of the company was acquired by Fiat in 1969, the more recent merger of Fiat and Chrysler brought about the return of Ferrari to an independent company. Since then, Ferrari has continued to develop and release vehicles that define automotive performance and style - such as the LaFerrari, 488 Pista and 812 Superfast.
