2018 Ferrari Portofino: The California T Replacement

2018 Ferrari Portofino: The California T Replacement

Ferrari recently revealed the newest addition to its models, the 2018 Ferrari Portofino. The 2018 Ferrari Portofino is the planned replacement for the current Ferrari California T. The Portofino will be powered by a front-mounted 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 producing an estimated 591 horsepower and 561 lb.-ft. of torque. This power will allow the Portofino to complete a 0-62 mph run in as little as 3.5 seconds. Ferrari also claims that the Portofino will be able to go over 199 mph, but not by how much. That means it “may” be a 200 mph class vehicle.

The first appearance of the 2018 Ferrari Portofino is expected to occur at the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. Some may call the Portofino the bottom-of-the-line Ferrari. Regardless of its placement within the brand, the Portofino is a true Ferrari vehicle. At an expected MSRP of over $200,000, the Portofino will exceed the California T in a few ways.

Firstly, there will be an additional 39 horsepower and 4 lb.-ft. of torque over the California T. Secondly, the Portofino will sport a brand new chassis that is lighter and sturdier than the California T. On top of this, the E-Diff3, an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, will be included in the video. Lastly, Ferrari engineers improved the magnetorheological adaptive-damping system as well as the electrically assisted power-steering system.

The 2018 Ferrari Portofino Will Be Stunning

Overall, the 2018 Ferrari Portofino is a great vehicle from what can be seen from the reveal. The expected, powerful Ferrari V8 will be completed by a brand new design taking Ferrari to the next generation. Many may think this is the low end of Ferrari, but it is a true Italian sports car. The Portofino offers slightly more power than the California T with an overhaul in the technology department. The unveil in Frankfurt should be exciting with prospective clients ready to see this vehicle.
