Ferrari has tip-toed into the practical car segment with the FF, a long-roof shooting brake-style two-door hatchback with an unconventional all-wheel drive system. Car's sources report that the upcoming crossover vehicle will be co-developed with the replacement for the GTC4Lusso (as the FF's successor model is called) as a larger, taller version of that vehicle.

This new model is code-named F16X, and rather than the V12 power of the GTC4, it will employ V8 or hybrid electric propulsion, Car states.

The F16X is said to use rear-hinged "suicide" rear doors to provide rear seat access without the clunky B pillar between the front and rear seats spoiling the vehicle's sleek coupe-like lines.

The F16X's price will top $340,000 when it debuts as a 2021 model, putting it in line with the GTC4Lusso, which starts at $300,000 today.
