Open and shut case

Wheels (Australia) - - Firstdrive­s -

The Portofino’s hard­top takes 14 sec­onds to open or close; ex­actly the same as the out­go­ing Cal­i­for­nia T. Un­like the Cali, the roof can be raised or low­ered up to 40km/h. Roof-up boot ca­pac­ity is 292 litres, enough, says Fer­rari, for three stan­dard-size air­line carry-on trol­leys. There’s a lot more crammed into the Portofino’s tail, in­clud­ing the rear transaxle and an 80-litre fuel tank, which ex­plains its 46/54 front/rear weight dis­tri­bu­tion. Up front, all of the V8 is aft of the front axle, ef­fec­tively mak­ing the Portofino front­mid en­gined.
