Ferrari Portofino replaces California T as the newest entry-level model

Ferrari Portofino replaces California T as the newest entry-level model

A new once-piece cast header exhaust, along with and Ferrari's Variable Boost Management system, helps to reduce turbo lag even further and provide improved throttle response.

The Portofino will make its physical debut in September at the Frankfurt International Motor show. The 0-100 km/h sprint is taken care of in 3.5 seconds, while the top speed hovers around the 320km/h mark. The new drop-top GT auto will replace Ferrari's entry-level model the California T and will be on show at this year's Frankfurt motor show. The cabin gets some more comfort-focused features, like a new AC system meant to do better with the hard-top up or down, 18-way electrically-adjustable seats with a new backrest shape to improve rear legroom, and a new wind deflector that promises 30-percent less air flow when fitted. A third-generation electronic rear differential - which Ferrari has dubbed E-Diff3 - has been added, integrated with the F1-Trac system, while it's also the first of Ferrari's GT's to get electric power steering.

Magnetorheological dampers are standard, now packing twin-coil technology to improve ride comfort when cruising, yet offer steel-like grip and body control when charging.

Ferrari has not revealed how much lighter the Portofino is than the California, which tipped the scales at 1625kg. It's called the Portofino, after the coastal Italian resort town.

As is tradition, Ferrari didn't announce how much its new vehicle will cost. While a weight hasn't yet been issued, it's split across the Portofino 46:54 front to rear. Ferrari claims a 0-60 miles per hour time of around 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 198 miles per hour. However, the newest addition to Ferrari is said to have a weight distribution of 46/54 front to rear. That's not the case for the Ferrari Portofino. The front end features a large grille and headlamps borrowed from the 488 but with black surrounds at the edges of which lie vents that channel air into the front wheel arches. The dynamics of the new wind deflector can cut in-cabin airflow by about 30 percent.

The cabin has also been treated to upgrades, with Ferrari adding a new 10.2-inch touchscreen display, as well an air conditioning system created to improve comfort with the roof in place or folded away.
