Ferrari NV (RACE) shares gained in Tuesday morning trading on reports that it was considering a push into utility vehicles.
Marchionne is hoping to boost Ferrari's profit margins and sell up to 10,000 cars a year. Furthermore, Ferrari says that it will market the FUV as a new industry segment rather than just another high-end SUV like those of Bentley, Maserati and most recently, Lamborghini.
