Thanks for the answer.
I agree about the "Ferrari 458 Italia" to be treated as a specialization of "sports car". Seems resonable to me too.
But, i guess that this is a particularity of "artificial domains" (or domains whose core objects are "artificial things/artifacts"). The taxonomies are open-ended: we can create a new subtype at any time. This strategy (a new class for each new "model") seems to result in complex ontologies, with a huge number (and growing) of leaf nodes.
I wonder if this strategy is more suitable to deal with this problem. Or to consider "model" as an attribute of the root node.
I guess that the two design choices have differente implications. But I still could not identify what the implications are.
