Ferrari has revealed the 2021 Portofino M as its new entry-level model that the brand claims represents an evolution of the outgoing Portofino.
Launching in Europe in the second quarter of 2021, the Portofino M is powered by a 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 producing 456kW of power and 760Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels through a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The transmission is on a dual-clutch oil bath architecture. It differs from the SF90 Stradale’s eight-speed in its longer gear ratios and the introduction of a mechanical reverse gear.
According to Ferrari, the Portofino M can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 3.45 seconds on its way to a top speed of 320km/h.
Like the Roma, the Portofino M gets the Race mode added to the Manettino drive mode selector taking the total options to five.
Externally, changes include new bumpers, a new wheel arch air vent, a revised grille with aluminium slats, a new exhaust system, a redesigned rear diffuser and unique diamond-finish wheels.
Very little work has been done to the interior, Ferrari says the seat padding has been changed to liberate more space in the rear, however, the car is still classified as a 2+.
Strangely, the new infotainment system, digital instrument cluster, gear selector and steering wheel from the Roma haven’t been included.
