    okey-dokey.
    Pininfarina, was, Pinin Farina. These two guys were stylists. the later changed the name to pininfarina, and the current head honcho is Sergio Pininfarina. they are an indipendant firm, and have done jobs for Ford, Peugeot, Ferrari and Pagani among others.<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: what exactly is Pininfarina?

    It wasn't Pinin AND Farina. In fact, chief designer and boss of the company now is Sergio Pininfarina, but he was born as Sergio Farina. Pinin was his nickname, and it means "little" in Italian.
    Oh yeah, he designed the first Ferrari (I think), and did the designs of about 90% of ferraris, ever. Pretty impressive if you ask me.
    He also did numerous other designs, a lot of Peugeots and stuff...

    dj_snaz037, you are full of it. The original founder of this incredible design house was a guy named Batista Pininfarina, not two guys as you claim. Where did you hear that?
     
  14. Re: what exactly is Pininfarina?

    Yeah... who would have thought that the Tiburon was designed by Pininfarina. Great design, great company.
     
  15. Re: what exactly is Pininfarina?

    First of all: Pininfarina ISN`T A GUY`S NAME. It`s his nick name. He gave to his design firm the nick name his friends used to call him. And that`s because, when he was alive (yes, he is already dead and now it`s his son that runs the firm), he was quite short and so his friends called him "Litle Farina", in italian, Pinin Farina (Pinin = Litle). By the way, his real name was Sergio Farina.
    And in second, a Ferrari isn`t that litle girl mom and dad bring home and Lamborghini isn`t that blablablabla... The new Ferrari Enzo and the magnificent Ferrari F50 GT would kick every Lamborghini ass in this entire planet!!!!

    FERRARI RULES!!!!!!!<!-- Signature -->

    There are some Ferraris designed by Gandini and others by Bertone, too.

    One of the MOST FAMOUS Ferraris, the 1st Dino (Dino is a nickname for Alfredino, one of Enzo Ferrari sons) was designed by Bertone.

    But, TODAY, almost all Ferraris are designed by Pininfarina because they're all part of the same group, FIAT. So it's cheaper (and better for the company) to build a Ferrari using a pininfarina design than build one using a Bertone or Gandini design.
