Ferrari’s Portofino only arrived on the scene two years ago but an updated version of the entry-level convertible is already being tested.
A prototype for a Portofino with a revised front end has been spotted. The tester sports similar headlights to those fitted to the related Roma coupe, as well as a new front fascia and grille.
A debut late this year or early next is possible and right now it isn’t clear whether the updated car will go by a new name or stick with the current one.
Under the hood should be the current Portofino’s 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, albeit with a new tune to match the 612 horsepower that the same engine delivers in the Roma, a slight increase on the current 592 hp. Also borrowed from the Roma should be an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission to replace the current Portofino’s 7-speed.
