Say goodbye to the Ferrari California T hardtop, the V8-powered grand touring sports car. But don’t be sad yet, as the Italian carmaker has already lined up a suitable replacement for the charming convertible – the new Ferrari Portofino.
Instead of retaining the already iconic moniker that is California, Ferrari has decided to give this new drop-top car a new name, one that reflects charm, elegance, luxury and sportiness.
Thus, Ferrari opted to name the California T successor as the Portofino, derived from a beautiful and charming town located in the northwestern section of Italy. In addition, the Italian sports car maker also named the launch color of this new V8 GT after the town – Rosso Portofino.
Ferrari plans to unveil the new Portofino to the global public at the 2017 Frankfurt International Motor Show in September.
