Entry-Level Ferrari Portofino Redefines Entry-Level Supercars

Ferrari Portofino is a Baby 812 Superfast

The exterior closely resembles all that we have seen with cars such as the GTC4 Lusso, and even more prominently with the 812 Superfast. The front end employs angry L-shaped headlights with small intakes nearby. These actually channel the air to the sides to create an “air bubble” effect. Ferrari learned that trick when they produced the stunning F12berlinetta. Even though aerodynamics cannot be the first priority when designing a convertible, it seems that Ferrari managed to make the Portofino reasonably advanced in that department as well. After all, take a look at all those intakes at the front and intricate design of the rear end (especially around the exhaust). The roof and the shape of the rear decklid are also redesigned giving the  Ferrari Portofino a somewhat more natural side profile compared to that of the California.

Obviously, the car looks lavish, but not as amiable as before, but that’s actually a good thing. We want our Ferraris to look like Ferraris, and not like bubbly, out of place grocery-getting mid-life crisis mobiles.
