Which Portofino does Edmunds recommend?

Personalization is fundamental to the Ferrari buying experience, and the Portofino offers an extensive list of options. Colors, stitching and materials are up to you, but there are some key boxes you'll want to check.

You'll appreciate the comfort of the 18-way adjustable heated front seats and adaptive suspension, while the passenger-oriented 7-inch touchscreen gives your copilot control over the stereo and navigation. Apple CarPlay is a must for iPhone users. And we'd pick the front and rear cameras to avoid costly mistakes in parking lots.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

On paper, the 2019 Ferrari Portofino runs with a small group of exotic and exclusive grand touring convertibles from brands such as Aston Martin, Bentley and Porsche. But let's be honest: It's a Ferrari, and that's really a class of one. And beyond the name that the aura invokes, the Portofino delivers a driving experience like nothing else.

One of Ferrari's newest road cars, the Portofino is a hardtop convertible that replaces the Ferrari California T as the "entry-level" Ferrari, if one can consider a six-figure sum that starts with a "2" as entry-level. Oriented as a grand-touring car, it aims to deliver sporty exhilaration and enjoyable handling in a package you can drive every day.

With 591 horsepower from its twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8, which is shared with the larger and more expensive GTC4Lusso T, the Portofino delivers rapid thrust. A suite of electronic controls ties everything together by adjusting power delivery to the rear wheels, ensuring agile and stable handling. Add in an available adaptive suspension, and you have a grand-touring car that drives just as good as it looks.

Exclusivity and personalization are essential to Ferraris, and here too the Portofino delivers with a wide range of custom options. Exterior and interior paints, leather colors, cast or forged wheels, and interior materials are all at the buyer's discretion. Though customization is obviously pricey, it ensures each Portofino feels unique to its owner.

Ferrari Portofino models

The Ferrari Portofino is a two-door, four-seat convertible available in a single and highly customizable trim level. It's powered by a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 (591 horsepower, 560 lb-ft of torque) and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It is only available with rear-wheel drive.

Along with robust power output, the 3.9-liter V8 comes with a feature called Variable Boost Management that builds acceleration more progressively by increasing torque output, depending on the gear and engine speed.

A three-setting drive mode selector engages a suite of electronic controls underneath the vehicle, including the differential and traction and stability control systems, ensuring confident and sure-footed handling.

Other standard features include 20-inch wheels, carbon-ceramic brake rotors, power-adjustable seats, a digital gauge cluster, and a 10.2-inch touchscreen entertainment system. Like all Ferraris, the Portofino offers extensive personalization options, from colors to trim, stitching and materials. Notable optional features include forged 20-inch wheels, run-flat tires, 12-speaker stereo, Apple CarPlay, and 18-way power-adjustable and heated front seats.

An available 7-inch touchscreen sits ahead of the passenger and displays entertainment, navigation and vehicle information. And an optional adaptive suspension, called MagneRide, offers both a smoother ride and sportier handling.

Available safety and assistance features include a backup camera, front and rear parking cameras, adaptive headlights that adjust with vehicle speed and steering input, and, appropriately, a fire extinguisher.

    5/5 stars, Horsepower the Italian way!
    Bnkrboy,
    2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl Turbo 7AM)
    The Portofino is NOT a cheap Ferrari. The build quality and R&D that went into the Portofino is absolutely top notch. This car is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Push the revs above 5k and the whole car changes. It’ll surprise you, know where you want to go and have the car pointed that direction before slamming the accelerator to the floor! Truly the next generation of Ferrari’s commitment to top quality materials and design. This is a drivers car.
    5/5 stars, Awesome looking and ride

    5/5 stars, A Very Satisfied Portofino Owner
    SirWallSt,
    2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl Turbo 7AM)
    It took six months for my Ferrari Portofino to be built and shipped to my eagerly awaiting garage. It proved to be worth the wait. While I rarely drive it, as it’s 3,430 miles will attest to, I enjoy its ownership everyday.

    2019 Ferrari Portofino video

    MARK TAKAHASHI: If you want to get a car that attention, you only need two words "new Ferrari." This is it, Ferrari Portofino. It replaces the outgoing California, which in my opinion had some styling issues. Especially in the back end. As you can see with this, doesn't have that problem. This one is so much more sleek, sharper, trimmed down, and lean. It's really quite beautiful. Like the California and has a retractable folding hard top, takes about 17 seconds. And it does this wonderful folding ballet. It's kind of pretty. So, under that hood it's a twin-turbo V8 that puts out 591 horsepower. Ferrari claims it will hit 60 miles an hour in only 3 and 1/2 seconds. That's pretty quick. As Ferrari entry level model it's $200,000. So entry level, put it in quotation marks. For the money though, you get adaptive dampers, leather everything-- and really, really nice leather-- and perfect stitching. It's Italian, what can I say?

    2019 Aston Martin DB11

    Ferrari Portofino vs. Aston Martin DB11

    Think of the DB11 as the English answer to the Ferrari's Italian swagger. Both cars cost roughly the same, but you get a larger Mercedes-built engine — a 12-cylinder, more specifically — in the DB11. Forget that it makes about 80 less horsepower than the turbocharged Ferrari — the Aston is not about outright speed or power, although there's plenty of it. The DB11 is about presence and a more elegant, understated way to go about your ultra-luxury grand touring.

    Ferrari Portofino vs. Bentley Continental

    Though powerful, the Continental GT convertible is a much larger and heavier car than the Portofino. Instead of advanced performance technology, the Bentley prioritizes delivering the utmost in comfort and refinement. Its unique W-configuration 12-cylinder engine doesn't sing like the Ferrari's V8, but it's undeniably powerful.

    Ferrari Portofino vs. Porsche 911

    The 911 Turbo S may have less horsepower and — more importantly — lack a Ferrari level of exclusivity, but it gains an undeniable acceleration advantage from its comparatively lower weight and standard all-wheel drive. The soft-top Porsche is also less expensive and offers a variety of trim levels to best suit your desires.

    Should I lease or buy a 2019 Ferrari Portofino?

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
