Who makes Ferrari?
Although Ferrari was the property of Fiat S.p.A. for several decades, today the company is owned by FCA’s shareholders. The Italian sports car maker was created as an independent company in 1939. A 50% share was purchased by Fiat in 1969. 20 years later Fiat already owned 90% of the company. However, in 2014 Fiat Chrysler Automobiles claimed it’s going to separate the brand. In the next couple of years FCA’s shares were distributed to shareholders of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Interestingly enough, 10% of Ferrari is still property of Piero Ferrari.
Where is Ferrari made?
Ferrari is different from the majority of auto brands, as they typically have many production sites, while Ferrari has only one. So, there isn’t such a thing as a chain of Ferrari manufacturing plants, there is only the auto maker’s cittadella, the Maranello factory in Italy.
The number of vehicles assembled within one year doesn’t exceed 7,000, which seems quite natural for a company that makes some of the world’s most expensive cars. In the 1990s the factory was redesigned and renovated. For this project, Ferrari commissioned well-known architects, Renzo Piano, Luigi Sturchio, Marco Visconti, and Massimiliano Fuksas among them. To create a home of Scuderia Ferrari French architect Jean-Michel Willmotte was commissioned.
