The 2020 Ferrari Portofino, is a two-door, four-seat convertible, come with a body that looks attractive, whether the retractable hardtop is raised or lowered, this four-seater front seat embodies the spirit of grand touring. The 2020 Portofino is also the cheapest way to join the Ferrari owners club, but admission still costs a small fortune. The twin-turbo V-8 triggers it or makes opera sounds, this Italian-made sprinter is fun to drive and listen to. The steering and brake pedal to be as rewarding as the rest of its performance attributes. Its cabin is sumptuously designed and customizable, but a small rear seat and a trunk reduce its practicality. However, the Portofino 2020 pays homage to the house of the prancing horse.
2019 Ferrari Portofino Interior
Inside, the Ferrari Portofino fabulous design and magnificent materials, is varied surfaces are sewn with elegant leather and the 18-way power front seats are sculpted to provide comfort and support. There is also a handy wind deflector which helps keep the cabin quiet at high speed when the roof is falling. With a few small seats behind the front passengers, the Ferrari convertible can technically carry up to four people.
However, It does not recommend that anyone spend time there. A handy tray is placed at the front of the center console for storing small items, and there’s even a place to store a drink nearby. Do not expect to put a golf bag or too many handbags in the trunk of the Portofino, as it is not very large.
A Ferrari’s infotainment system is like a spare tire in a Buick – it’s good to have it when you need it, but it’s not something someone will ask for. However, the Portofino 2020 includes a 10.2-inch touch screen mounted in the center of the dashboard. We found that the unit responds during our limited exposure, and the touch screen in front of the optional front passenger allows them to view performance data and even operate the car’s navigation system.
2019 Ferrari Portofino Engine
A Ferrari is equipped with a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 that hides under the elongated hood of the Portofino is excellent. The engine sends 591 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. But the claimed top speed of “over 199 mph” and the estimated time of zero to 60 mph in the low three-second range are not the most impressive. It is the unmistakable buzzer that springs from the exhaust tips when the Portofino tachometer needle is loaded towards the red line of the engine at 7,500-RPM.
The last time we drove was in Italy, where the convertible offered comfortable driving and remarkable body control, both have been improved by adaptive shock absorbers. Although its electrically powered steering has provided a satisfactory response, the configuration is not as attractive as that offered by Porsche. Each 2020 Portofino is also equipped with carbon-ceramic brakes which guarantee the rapid stopping of this heavy GT. However, we had to get used to the initial softness of the brake pedal before receiving the expected firmness.
2019 Ferrari Portofino Safety
2019 Ferrari Portofino has not been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The sensual Italian convertible also avoids traditional driver assistance technology to favor the purest driving experience possible.
