About the Ferrari Portofino
Speed, luxury, comfort, open-top driving. Ferrari got all this with their new convertible model, the Portofino. The Ferrari Portofino is the replacement model to the California T. The updated, stylish and powerful Portofino matched the current design language of Ferrari; sleek headlamps, defined front fascia, muscular angles, sharp character lines, and their signature round taillights. The 2+2 hardtop convertible looks very elegant with the top up and sporty with the top down.
Under the hood, 592 horsepowers are generated by the 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Mated to the engine is a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. A front-engine rear-wheel drive configuration allows for an ideal driving for a convertible like this.
Inside, the leather seats and interior trims are a standard feature, with aluminum accents on the dashboard, center console, and steering wheel. The steering wheel adopted the integrated buttons which was first introduced with the Ferrari 458 Italia. This allows a clearer space behind the wheel with only the paddle shifters to be toggled by the driver's fingertips. The Manettino dial is present as well, allowing selection for different driving conditions and road surfaces. Option for carbon fiber trims is also available. Like the 812 Superfast, the Portofino features a duplicate screen on the passenger side, allowing the passenger to see all the vital statistics and information with regards to the performance of the car. The rear boot provides sufficient luggage space even when the top is stowed away. A panel separates the luggage to the folded roof, preventing damage to the roof.
The Portofino is basically one of the most elegant luxury convertibles out there. It is also one of the finest convertibles by the Ferrari. Practical, yet packed with lots of horses for a fun driving experience.
