While so many supposed Ferrari fanatics are just sitting on their collective hands and waiting for the Italian supercar maker to finally reveal its F150 (or whatever it'll be called) Enzo follow-up, designer Josiah LaColla has gotten busy with his Wacom tablet and set to work. The results, though quite possibly no closer to the actual F150 as any of the other renderings we've seen thus far, are lovely to behold.
Well, actually, "lovely" probably isn't the perfect descriptor – anything less than a little bit brutal wouldn't be a proper successor to the Enzo, nor would it fit the parameters laid out by the test mules we've seen so far. Accurate within the best of LaColla's ability to guess and imagine is probably a better way of looking at these designs, which show a car that has enough venting to keep the bowls of Hell cool (should Hell ever hit the autostrada at 200+ kilometres per hour).
We've recapitulated the designer's own words in press release form below, so as to give you a good idea of his intentions with the design, and added his rear three-quarter rendering. Read, view and tell us what you think of the renderings, in our comment section.

While the real deal is still tight under wraps back in Italy, we photoshoppers have settled onto our Wacom tablets across the globe to try to piece together the identity of Ferrari's latest Hypercar. These images are my best guess- and using a slew of references ranging from the cracks in the mule-car camouflage to Ferrari's latest form language and the infamous leaked plaque, it's indeed an educated guess.
Taking a step away from other rendered speculations, this version makes an attempt to get into Pininfarina's shoes, keeping the body as clean as possible while integrating all the necessary ventilation. The mule's peculiar front fender/door intersection indicates the F150 will have a very open-wheeled look and feel. How close is this to the real fast-plastic? The wait to know will be over in less than three weeks.
