The Ferrari Portofino’s all-new chassis features a significant weight saving over the California T it replaces. All the chassis and body-in-white components have been redesigned with a consequent reduction in weight despite an increase in torsional rigidity.
"The tail design underlines the car’s sporty stance which has been further enhanced by placing the tail lights further apart. This elegant solution cleverly conceals the rear volume housing the all-new RHT which features a more lightweight design and can be raised or lowered at low speeds," reads a Ferrari description.
