La nuova Ferrari 4 porte - quattroporte

This blogpost had a French magazine (Auto Hebdo) with an article about Ferrari which included some spionage photo's about a potential 4 door prototipo: 

I now got ahold of this Italian magazine Starter which also reveals a few photo's on the same car (however without the 412 rimms)

Ferrari 400i Automatic - ex Cartier Executive car for sale

This one got posted on Facebook:

With the supporting information:

1982 400i automatic - #41625. Perhaps someone here will give her a good home - car has suffered from long time storage and will need complete recommissioning. Unknown service history and mileage - perhaps maintained at Pozzi - and Cartier executive car. Located Jutland, Denmark euro 40.000 firm. Certificat d´immatriculation from france.

I was triggered due to the fact this one was used by Cartier as an executive car. I recalled an older advert on Anamera ( I only had these photo's saved in my archive. Adding it here just for the records and the prestige brand name associated to it:

Update 7-5-2023: I spotted this Danish advert, apparently now for sale for 35k

Exotic car wrecks - Ferrari 400i - Ferr Parts

I was informed about this Youtube episode which had a Ferrari 400i appearance:

I made the following screen captures as it goes pretty quick.

Question remains, where is this location? When checking I had the answer on my own blog, it's FerrParts:

Since they were filming at the thunderhill raceway park in Sacramento I had checked that area first. And I found another Exotic car recycling company: So that might come in handy as another source for parts. However they don't have any 400's in stock.

I was still in doubt though as I checked the Ferr Parts address via Google maps but that did not reveal the car graveyard - when following the railroad track a little further I spotted it nearby though
