Critics Weigh In: Ferrari Portofino Reviews

While there is no shortage of writing and reviews of the Portofino online, we focused on auto journalists with a history of covering high-performance, high-class vehicles. After all, how could we trust anyone else’s opinions on a Ferrari?

  • Top Gear: “It’s fast. Capital F fast. Mother-flipping fast. Zero to 124mph in 10.8 seconds and 198mph top speed fast … like all recent Ferraris it also has a superbly resolved ride quality; Ferrari has tweaked the algorithms in the magnetic dampers, although the Portofino runs stiffer springs front and rear.”
  • Car and Driver: “The front seats, with thinner frames newly rendered from magnesium, are supremely comfortable and leave a skosh more room for rear-seat riders’ knees. With the top raised, the Portofino is coupe-like quiet, and you can fit three carry-on roller bags in the trunk. So it’s everyday useful and uncommonly athletic.”
  • Motor Trend: “The Portofino interior includes a 10.3-inch infotainment interface at the center of the dash and a mini-screen that offers the passenger views of performance data, navigation status, and entertainment information. Combining leather, carbon fiber, and aluminum finishes, it looks and feels plush.”
  • James May for The Sunday Times: “The engine is an absolute monster, and the turbocharging naysayers really can pipe down now. Never mind that it can propel the Portofino to 60mph in under 3.5 seconds; Ferrari’s meticulous engine management means the powerband lasts for 4,500 RPM, making this a very tractable car.”
