Buying a normal car is not a big deal, right? What about purchasing a Ferrari? Getting your hands on Ferrari cars may take several months, years and a lot of money in your bank account.
Ferrari is one among those dream cars every car enthusiast would want to own in their garage. One of the biggest perks of working with an auto manufacturer is you can enjoy some employee discount.
Being an employee of an auto manufacturer can be really profitable, unless you are working in a Ferrari company.
According to the facts, it is said that Ferrari has forbidden its employees from purchasing Ferrari cars. Yes, you heard it right!
Ferrari has banned its employees from buying brand new super-luxurious Ferrari cars from the factory line. It is argued that this is one of the worst rules introduced by Ferrari. When asked about the reason behind this abnormal ban on the employees, you'll be surely impressed.
In an interview, one of the top officials of Ferrari has revealed that they don't allow any employee to purchase Ferrari cars. The only employees who can get their hands on brand new Ferrari cars are the company's Formula 1 drivers.
According to the reports, it is said that Ferrari has just two Formula 1 drivers. Hey, they are made to pay the full amount and do not enjoy any employee discount.
The Idea Behind This Ban
The philosophy behind this ban by Ferrari is their long waiting list of clients. Yes, the Chief Officer of Ferrari has said that they produce limited cars in a year and they have a long list of clients waiting for the cars to get delivered.
The company believes it's not nice to deliver the cars first to their employees, as the clients are the kings of the market. A client always comes first!
"The philosophy is that with such limited production and clients waiting so long to get their car, it's not nice if the car is delivered to employees. It is clients first," he said.
Hey, that's not all! In order to get your hands on Ferrari cars, you'll need to win the heart of the company. The company will decide if they want to give you the car or not. It is said that the company drops a mail to people who have money in their account but don't deserve a Ferrari car.
Now coming to the second part, the company drops a mail to the first 200 clients to whom they would like to offer a Ferrari car. They mention about their upcoming supercars and also ask the clients to book the keys of the car as soon as possible.
