Product Overview

Ferrari Portofino (Type F164) is a high-performance mid-size luxury convertible in production from 2017 to 2020. It was powered by an F154 bi-turbo V8 engine that displaced 3.9 liters paired to a 7-speed DCT.
An evolution of the California T, the Portofino has a revised exterior design that is gorgeous whether the top is in the up or down position. It is perhaps the only hardtop convertible on the market today that manages to achieve this feat.
The drivetrain in the Portofino is even more powerful and torquey than that found in the California T, though this is gratuitous to begin with.

Sentiment Score 66%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Portofino has three driving modes which variously configure its powertrain, dampers, steering and stability control. It has a separate ‘bumpy road’ suspension override button so that you can have most of the systems set for optimum driver engagement but the dampers set to soft. The car’s ride too easily becomes jittery and restless on a vaguely undulating surface in ‘sport’ mode.

Pros
  • Fantastic handling
  • Impressive lateral body control
  • Superb infotainment system
Cons
  • A touch over-seasoned
  • Not the most fun to drive

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
, this car’s forged 20in alloys also wear Michelin”s Pilot Alpin winter tyres. In Sport mode, the response and full bellowing breadth is staggering. The transition from bump to rebound plays out with the grace of a perfectly executed baton exchange between two sprinters. Body control is uncanny, even at the extremities of the suspension's travel. With steering this quick, it helps dart the Portofino into corners with ravenous hunger.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Impressive handling
  • Fantastic infotainment system
Cons
  • Pricier than the 488 Pista
  • Slightly heavier than the Portofino

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Ferrari Portofino is an evolution of the old California T. It has a new platform that helps reduce weight, a revised suspension set-up to improve handling, and a better-engineered retractable roof system. The interior has also come a long way from the California and now features a stylish dash with prominent central dial and TFT screen panels either side.

Pros
  • Foldable hard top roof
  • Great value for money
Cons
  • Folding roof isn’t for everyone
  • No MPV

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Portofino replaces the California T. It features an electronically folding metal roof that can open or close in a fairly snappy 14 seconds, while the decent 292-litre boot is big enough for a weekend away. Inside, you'll notice the two rear seats are only really appropriate for small children and short trips. The cabin is a slight mismatch of luxurious craftsmanship and lower-quality switchgear.

Pros
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Punchy handling
Cons
  • Lacklustre handling

carmagazine[5]

Sentiment Score 66%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Portofino is the second Ferrari after the 812 Superfast to get electric power steering. The lightness of the new system immediately makes the car feel nimble and responsive, without being as hyperactively responsive as other Ferrari systems. Downshifts are particularly impressive, engaging with real crispness as the revs flick up instantly. The engineers have managed to dial in some road feel and a well-judged increase in weight to convey the increasing load on the chassis.

Pros
  • Fantastic performance
  • Powerful engine
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Fiddly infotainment
  • Lack of togetherness at higher revs

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
A seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels, firing the Portofino to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 199 mph. Changing gears via one of the car's massive carbon fiber paddles is a treat for any tactile individual. Ergonomic, supremely comfortable seats keep us feeling fresh throughout the journey.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Powerful V8
  • Comfortable ride
Cons
  • No manual transmission
