The new Ferrari Portofino looks pretty stylish to me; far more so than the California T it replaces.

It's arguably at its best with the roof up, in side profile, where the rear window eases into the rear deck in 'there's lovely', two-box, coupé-like fashion.

This is also, probably not coincidentally, the first time that Ferrari's vice-president of design, Flavio Manzoni, has had a completely new platform to work with. That goes to show how gradual the pace of change is in the motor industry: Manzoni arrived at Ferrari at the start of 2010, by which time development of the F12 (debut in 2012) would have been well under way, and other new Ferrari projects he has worked on since have developed from existing body structures.
