New car will follow the 812 GTS and F8 Spider onto market; a hardtop Portofino looks likely

Ferrari has confirmed that it will reveal a new model later today in a post on its official Instagram page

An accompanying image reveals little about the new car, but we can see a blurred grey silhouette travelling at speed, reflected in a pair of sunglasses. 

A video posted to the same account earlier this week features clips of famous Italian landmarks and traffic in urban areas, suggesting that it will be a less performance-focused model than the recently revealed F8 Tributo and SF90 Stradale

One possibility is that the firm will reveal a hardtop coupé variant of its entry-level Portofino sports car, following the unveiling last month of the 812 GTS and F8 Spider convertibles. 

In that case, we can expect it to retain the grand tourer’s turbocharged 3.9-litre V8, which produces 592bhp and 561lb ft. The new car is likely to offer a slight performance advantage over the drop-top, however, with the loss of a weighty roof mechanism. 

Full details of the new model will be available later today at Autocar.co.uk

Our Verdict

Ferrari Portofino review hero

Faster, more agile and perhaps more authentically ‘Ferrari’, but like its predecessor, the Portofino lacks the dynamic sophistication of a great GT car

A month ago I was at the Fiorano test track and saw a camoflaged Portofino sized car lapping, my guess was either a coupe or soft top spider Portofino!

A hardtop version of the Portofino would be idiotic. You may be stupid, but not Ferrari.

6.40 pm.  On Ferrari’s Facebook page.

It’s a Jaguar F Type coupe with a Ferrari badge on it.

Looks nice, but it’s nothing new.  Bit disappointing, really.
