Ferrari replaces California, the front-engine GT convertible, with all new Portofino. The model, which takes its name from one of the most beautiful cities of Italy, Portofino, attracts attention with its foldable ceiling, large luggage volume and generous living space.

The twin turbocharged V8 has seen a power increase of 40 hp to a total of 592 hp, with torque remaining around the same mark at 760 Nm. This has been achieved through the combination of new pistons, con-rods, intake system, exhaust system and Variable Boost Management. That places the Ferrari Portofino as the most powerful convertible with a retractable hard top on the road today. That engine is part of the same Ferrari engine family that was nominated for the International Engine of the Year in both 2016 and 2017. The new chassis has benefited with a significant weight saving over the California through extensive use of modern production technologies and materials.

Close collaboration between the Aerodynamics department and Ferrari Design has ensured maximum efficiency in the development of the surface treatment. Starting with the front, the form of the large radiator grille opening, that stretches from edge to edge of the carefully contoured nose, is underscored by a new full-LED headlight assembly with a more horizontal shape. Outside edge of the headlight hides an innovative air intake which vents into the front wheelarch and exits along the flank to reduce drag.
