Just a few weeks ago Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa revealed that a spider version of the Ferrari 458 Italia is in the works, due in 2011. Now revealed some of the details for the replacements of the 599 GTB Fiorano and 612 Scaglietti as well as an all-new Enzo successor.
The first to be replaced is likely the 612 Scaglietti, though Ferrari spokesman Matteo Sardi tells us that hasn't been revealed yet. On the market since it replaced the 456 M in 2004, the Scaglietti is growing a bit long in the tooth. It will have to soldier on for another 2 years, however, as the replacement for the 612 isn't expected until 2012 or after.

Still, that's a fairly typical 8-year product cycle, and with the customization possible through Ferrari's One-to-One program, it's sure to stay fresh until the new car comes along. Rumors of a possible end-of-life facelift with a new V-12 engine also persist, so stay on the lookout for more to come.
Next on the docket is likely the 599 GTB Fiorano. Ferrari's flagship grand tourer, the 599 has only been on the market since 2006, when it took the place of the 575 M Maranello. Its replacement isn't due until sometime betwee 2012 and 2015, according to the report, giving it a nearly 9-year lifespan.

Already it has received mid-cycle updates with an HGTE pack and a new 599XX "technological laboratory" revealed at the Geneva Motor Show this year shows off what might be in the works for a Scuderia version of the car, or possibly even the next-generation of the car itself.
Finally, a successor to the Enzo supercar is due "around 2012" according to Felisa, though what form the car might take is unclear--except that it won't be sporting a hybrid drivetrain. Hybrid Ferrari road cars won't be taking to the streets until 2014 at the earliest, leaving the Enzo successor to rely on the sonorous and relatively simple Ferrari combustion engine.

For hints at what the Enzo replacement might look like, however, we can look to the FXX testbed. While that car still uses a 6.2-liter V-12 engine, there has been discussion of the next Ferrari supercar sporting V-8 power.
