“Ferrari’s new GT car is easy in town, and fast and fantastic over long distances”— Paul Ebeling
The Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) Portofino M is a GT car that looks Super!. The hood is long and lovely, with a bulging center crease that frames the iconic Prancing Horse emblem at its nose.
The upward-sweeping headlights gives the Portofino M an aggressive stance.
The Portofino M is Ferrari’s best-selling GT car + it is the ultimate convertible. With more power from the twin-turbo V8, now at 612hp, a new 8-speed dual-clutch, and a dedicated Race mode (though not a track car), Ferrari wanted the updated Portofino to be aggressive, the “M” at the end of the name means “modificata“.
The Ferrari Portofino M is a touring car 1st and foremost, but is very good in town too.
Ferrari is The Aristocrat of the automotive sector.
