Ferrari Portofino Overview
Named after a village in the Italian Riviera in Northern Italy, the Ferrari Portofino is Ferrari’s ‘entry level’ 2+2 convertible with retractable hardtop hailed from Maranello. The front-engined V8 grand tourer makes its global debut back in the 2017 Frankfurt motor show as the successor to the lukewarm Ferrari California T.
The Ferrari Portofino's all-new chassis features a significant weight saving over its predecessor thanks to the extensive use of modern production technologies. The award-winning Ferrari V8 turbocharged engine featured here now punches out 40 PS more than the California T.
The exterior has been completely redesigned with new and sharper looking contours that no doubt draws inspiration from Ferrari’s own four-seater shooting brake, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso. Ferrari claims that majority of buyers are new to the marque, much like the recently launched Ferrari Roma coupé, which was developed based on the Ferrari Portofino.
Priced from RM 948,000 (excluding duty and options) when launched, the drop top Prancing Horse goes up against the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster, McLaren 570 S Spider and the Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet.
