Ferrari has zero interest in building a car that can drive itself.
That's the word from CEO Benedetto Vigna, who spoke at the Financial Times' Future of the Car Summit this month in London.
"In a cabin, there are four kinds of software," Vigna said, according to Insider. "There is performance software, there is comfort software, there is infotainment software, and there is autonomous. The last one, we don't care."
The ultraluxury brand is, however, working on electric vehicles and has the talent to develop its own software for those, said Vigna, who became CEO in September 2021. He added that it has secured partnerships with battery makers to introduce an EV by 2025.
But as much as Vigna has sworn off self-driving technology, it's always possible the company might change its mind. After all, Ferrari executives said in 2016 that they had no plans to build an SUV or four-door vehicle. The four-door Purosangue, Ferrari's first SUV, debuted last fall.
