At the heart of the Ferrari Portofino is its engine, a V8 unit displacing 3.9L, fed by a pair of turbochargers. It's a combination that makes 591 horsepower and 561 lb-feet of torque, which is then sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox. An advanced stability and traction control system, adaptive dampers and carbon-ceramic brakes round out the race-derived chassis enhancements. Perhaps surprisingly, Ferrari has made an effort to bring fuel economy in line with customers' increased interest. The Portofino, despite its raging V8, manages a respectable 22 highway mpg. One of the best features of the Portofino is its folding hardtop. Most convertibles tend to look a little bit awkward with their fabric tops up, but the Portofino looks beautiful no matter which configuration it's in, thanks to a roof made up of folding metal panels. This also reduces noise and enhances comfort and safety when compared to a traditional soft top. Standard equipment includes 18-way power front seats, a 10-inch touchscreen-based entertainment and navigation system. The gauges are a mix of digital and analog with a big center tachometer, which, of course, can be optioned up with an array of alternate colors. An optional passenger-side 7-inch touchscreen can display navigation, g-forces and other vehicle information. Apple CarPlay is standard. The options list offers a tastefully brief array of ways to enhance and personalize the Portofino. The brake calipers, for example, are available in 5 colors. Five variety of 20-inch wheels are on offer, as are four different grilles and three styles of exhaust pipe.
