2018 Ferrari Portofino
Blu Pozzi with Cuoio Leather
Unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show as the replacement for the California T, the twin turbocharged front-engine V8 Ferrari Portofino arrived as a stunning, modern, high performance Gran Touring car in keeping with a long tradition of Ferraris designed to meet the growing demands for a car that blended performance and comfort. Incorporating the latest in aerodynamics and premier materials technology, mechanical improvements included an alloy chassis using hollow castings with increased structural rigidity while also shedding close to 200 lbs of excess weight when compared with the California T. With an eyepopping output of 591hp, the Portofino delivered a 199 mph top speed and 0-60 mph times of 3.9 seconds. All this while sparing room for two modestly proportioned rear seat occupants.
Beautifully constructed with a blend of engineering and sculptural excellence, the most striking exterior design feature of the Portofino is the fully concealable hardtop. With just a flip of a switch, the hardtop cascades rearward, stowing efficiently under the pivoting trunk, remarkably still leaving storage space for weekend luggage. Throughout the car, unique features reveal superb engineering and design elements including improved suspension via magnetorheological dampers, electrically assisted power steering, a redline steering wheel rim shift indicator, a dizzying array of seat positioning controls including temperature settings, vastly improved air conditioning and infotainment controls, and instantly deployable concealed roll bar hoops, hidden into the rear cowl shell. A beautiful statement of the very best in sporting excellence, the Portofino could very well be the finest and most balanced GT car ever produced.
This particular car is a one owner 4,100 mile example, which has been impeccably maintained since delivery new to Ferrari Maserati of San Francisco, CA. Standard equipment includes the twin turbo V8 with 7 speed F1 dual clutch transmission and F1-Trac Traction Control with E-Diff. Carbon ceramic brakes, driver and passenger airbags, front and rear parking sensors, and LED front and rear lighting finish of a spectacular array of features. In addition to these features, this particular car is highly optioned, delivered with almost $60,000.00 worth of convenience and design features, making it a truly unique and desirable car, particularly in these stunning colors.

With such a prominent number of options, one might expect the car to be heavily laden. Not so, this Portofino is not only a feature-rich visual delight, the exterior condition is very well balanced and beautifully representative of an essentially new car. The paintwork is deep and glossy throughout with excellent rich blue reflections accented by the optional wheels, Scuderia fender badges, and vivid yellow brake calipers. There are minor small chips in front of the car, visible only when viewed up close, but otherwise no major marks of note. The lighting and glass are clear and crisp with excellent detailing and superb luster. The beautiful optional 20” wheels are in excellent condition, accented by the yellow calipers and Ferrari center crests. All emblems and script are in exceptional condition again, as with all details surrounding the car, essentially as new. The rich, deep blue color gives the aggressive shape an authoritative yet elegant presence hinting at the performance heritage.
The interior is visually stunning in every respect featuring excellent leather and composite finishes throughout. As the 4,700 miles will attest, there are no visible signs of wear in any areas including the driver’s seat bolsters. The seat stitching, Cavallino headrest accents, and carbon fiber trim all work perfectly with the stunning Cuoio leather surfaces. Here again, the elegance of these colors brings out some of the very best design features of the Portofino. Even the dark carpet shows virtually no signs of use. The technologically sophisticated dashboard is optioned with the yellow tachometer and fronted by the Manettino steering wheel, derived from F1 controls complete with the red to blue LED strobe shifting indicator nestled into the top of the steering wheel rim. Glossy Carbon Fiber trim continues in various places along with easy to reach switches and controls, also like new. The electronically operated disappearing hardtop is a sophisticated ballet of precise articulation that will delight anyone witnessing it. The open position allows for open air motoring, with the added feature of instant return to solid roof protection, full glass, and sound insulation, all at your fingertips. Even with the roof down, the premium sound system provides great entertainment should one ever become complacent to the sounds of the 591 hp twin turbo engine.
The engine compartment and engine have been exceptionally well-maintained and properly detailed, displaying correct factory finishes and factory specified hardware, with no apparent alterations since new. The trunk compartment is very clean and rather spacious even with the folding hardtop cleverly stowed inside. The underside of the car is further supportive of the low miles with no significant evidence of use to the nearly new components. Even the Pirelli PZero tires appear essentially as new.
The engine comes to life with a glorious resonant start that settles into a deep, satisfying rumble, filling the cabin with a symphony of Ferrari sound. Throttle response is immediate, snappy, and responsive. The power is smooth and progressive under gentle city driving, yet with the touch of the accelerator this phenomenal car launches quickly into highway speeds with 60 mph coming on in a matter of seconds. Magnetorheological stability, optional Magneride dual-mode suspension, and carbon ceramic braking work so well together they simply blow away any former notions of “compromise” offering both touring composure and spirited cornering limited only by your driving skills. The balance of sports car power, GT touring, and comfortable performance makes the Portofino not only an exclusive motoring engagement, it may very well be the perfect car, daringly endorsed, for daily use – a brilliant and welcome enticement to modern Ferrari ownership. This exquisite Ferrari comes with the factory key fob, window sticker, factory books contained in the correct factory case, tools, battery charger.
Since their debut, the Ferrari Portofino has become nearly impossible to order new. Very few pre-owned cars come to market as current owners discover everyday more reasons to continue enjoying these versatile performance cars. The opportunity to acquire an essentially new Ferrari Portofino with just one previous owner and more than $60,000.00 in options rarely comes along. Developed with premier technical features, captivating design, and configurable at the touch of a button to open or closed driving configurations, this fantastic Portofino is truly one of the very best GT Ferraris available today.
