Stunning 592bhp Ferrari Portofino Revealed - Goodbye California!

New Ferrari Portofino Is Maranello's Beautiful Drop-Top GT

The California T redesign helped, but the new Portofino looks great from the start.

Note also the aero management of the Portofino: without recourse to ugly spoilers or wings, Ferrari says it has reduced drag and improved aerodynamics through careful body sculpting and channeling of the passing airstream.

As is tradition, Ferrari didn't announce how much its new auto will cost. Ferrari says the result is a smoother auto whether being pushed hard or transporting the family. The front of the vehicle features a smiling look like most of it's siblings with the large central grille and sleek sharp LED headlamps.

The Portofino uses a development of the California T's 3.9-liter V8, with power rising from 552 hp to 591. On overall dimensions, the new Ferrari model measures 16mm longer and 28mm wider but 4mm shorter.

Ferrari said in its announcement that the Portofino, powered by an upgraded V8 turbocharged engine, will get from zero to 60 miles per hour in less than 3.5 seconds.

Under the skin, there's a magnetorheological damping system (SCM-E) now with dual-coil technology for reducing roll. It's also the first GT auto in Ferrari's range to be fitted with electronic power steering, while the suspension has been updated in a bid to reduce body roll and improve damping. There is also a newly designed steering wheel and front seats with revised backrests that are claimed to free up additional legroom for rear seat passenger. There's also an electrically deployable wind deflector that is said to reduce wind flow into the interior by 30%, helping to make the auto quieter at speed.

The auto has also been given other mechanical modifications including a new exhaust system built with a header created to reduce turbo lag and enhance throttle response, new aluminium chassis and Ferrari's third generation electric rear differential and electric power steering.

The interior of the Ferrari Portofino gets a couple of changes to the layout, and boasts new features like a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, 18-way electrically adjustable seats and a new wind deflector which reduces airflow inside the cabin by 30 per cent when the roof is down.

The replacement - the new #Ferrari Portofino which was named after an Italian village - will be unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
