Expert Rating

The Ferrari Portofino is a convertible 2+2 sports car, and is the ‘entry-level’ model in the Ferrari range. It was unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show as a replacement for the Ferrari California T.

The Portofino has received positive reviews from the selected UK media sources invited to drive it, although the scores have not been as high as one might expect for a Ferrari. It has been praised for being a significant improvement over the California although, like its predecessor, it has been criticised for not delivering a driving experience as enjoyable as other Ferraris.

An updated model, called the Ferrari Portofino M (which stands for Modificata) was unveiled in September 2020 and arrived in the UK in early 2021.
