An Italian luxury sports car maker founded by Enzo, Ferrari is currently based in Maranello, Italy. Enzo Ferrari established Scuderia Ferrari in 1929, and the company soon became a technical-racing outpost of Alfa Romeo. When Alfa Romeo stopped its in-house racing team in 1933, Scuderia Ferrari became its official racing department.
In 1938, Alfa Romeo resumed its in-house racing team and that time Scuderia Ferrari was disbanded. Enzo Ferrari left Alfa Romeo on September 6, 1939, and established Auto Avio Costruzioni in Modena on September 13, 1939. In 1957, Auto Avio Costruzioni was renamed to Auto Costruzioni Ferrari and the Scuderia Ferrari name was revived to denote its factory racing cars.
In 1960, Auto Costruzioni Ferrari was restructured as a public corporation into Societa Esercizio Fabbriche Automobili e Corse S.p.A. (SEFAC). In 1969, Fiat acquired a 50-percent stake in SEFAC. In 1989, SEFAC changed its name to Ferrari S.p.A.
