Ferrari is usually associated with making fast and track-focused supercars. But, every once in a while, they set those goals aside to create grand tourers like the California and GTC4Lusso. Back in 2017, the Ferrari California was replaced by the Portofino as the entry-level model in Ferrari's range. Like the California, the Portofino M gets a hard-top convertible roof and a front-engine rear-drive layout.

2022 Ferrari Portofino M Convertible Features

The 2022 Ferrari Portofino M is available in only one trim level with a hard-top convertible roof. As you'd expect, it is very well equipped, including 18-way power-adjustable seats, leather upholstery, a 10.3-inch infotainment system, climate control, and a lot more. On the technical side, features like carbon-ceramic brakes are included as standard. Ferrari also offers a plethora of options ranging from driver assistance features to a 7-inch passenger display and new features like ventilated front seats with neck-warming and more, all of which can quickly shoot up the final price.

Release Date

While there is no concrete confirmation from the Ferrari itself, but looking at the news from various sources, the car is expected to reach the market in the early months of 2022.

2022 Ferrari Portofino M Convertible Engine and Performance

5.0/10

Although the 2022 Ferrari Portofino M gets the same 3.9L twin-turbocharged V-8 engine as the outgoing model, Ferrari has reworked it with upgraded turbochargers, high-lift cam profiles, and hollow valve stems to improve performance and make the Portofino M a lot more lively. The end result is a power bump of 21 hp. The new model produces 612 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque. Responsiveness has also improved, and the engine is now a lot quicker to respond. Fortunately, it still retains the signature Ferrari soundtrack at higher revs, making the roof-down experience exceptionally good. Taking the engine up to its astronomical 7,500 RPM redline is just as fun as before and is further helped by the new “Race” mode setting. Yes, the Portofino M finally gets a track-focused mode like its siblings, which disables traction control and turns it into a track weapon.

The old 7-speed gearbox is also switched out for a new 8-speed dual-clutch unit lifted from the SF90 and Roma that feels a lot better and better suited to the updated engine. Shifts are exceptionally quick with carbon fiber paddles, and the engine lets out a raspy burble with pops and bangs when downshifting at speed. With its newfound performance and the upgraded gearbox, the Portofino M rushes to 60 MPH in just 3.5 seconds and crosses the quarter-mile in 10.9 seconds. Granted, these are not the fastest figures out there, but for a GT car, it is quick, especially when compared to its rivals.

Along with the updated drivetrain, Ferrari has also reworked the suspension and brakes of the M model. Being a GT car at heart, it is a lot softer than its siblings like the SF90 and Roma. However, it is still a capable handler with good cornering stability and light yet precise steering. The new “Race” mode certainly helps improve dynamics by turning off most of the driver aids and sharpens up throttle and steering response. Like most Ferraris, the Portofino M also gets a rear-drive layout, which puts it at a disadvantage since most GT cars get advanced all-wheel-drive systems to help them tackle unideal conditions.

While all four GTs get an eerily similar powertrain, the overall performance varies significantly. The BMW M8 Competition is easily the fastest of the lot in terms of acceleration, followed by the Ferrari Portofino M. Both the Aston Martin DB11 Volante and Bentley Continental GT V8 are slightly slower in comparison. But, the Ferrari Portofino M can achieve the highest top speed among all four models. When comparing the price tag, Bentley is the most expensive option in the competition.

2022 Ferrari Portofino M Convertible Fuel Economy

2.0/10

Although fuel economy is not the highest priority for someone shopping in this price range, a GT car needs to cruise long distances without breaking a sweat. However, the small tank capacity of just 18 gallons and the average economy figures limit Portofino M’s range to just above 400 miles, a low figure compared to rivals. The 2022 model of the Portofino M is expected to deliver the same economy as the 2021 model, that is 16 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg combined.

Just like the Ferrari Portofino M, the rivals also fall in the same slot when it comes to fuel economy. When comparing the four cars, the Bentley Continental GT V8 is easily the best of the lot, thanks to its massive fuel tank and class-leading highway efficiency, giving it a highway range of over 600 miles. All the other GTs also offer decent efficiency figures with slightly smaller tank capacities, requiring more top-ups on longer journeys.

2022 Ferrari Portofino M Convertible Interior

5.0/10

Like its elegant exteriors, Ferrari has also done wonders with the interior design with plenty of expensive leather and carbon fiber. Customers with deep bank accounts can also opt for even more carbon fiber, including the unique steering wheel with shift lights. Being a grand tourer, the 2022 Ferrari Portofino M gets all the luxuries you’d expect like 18-way adjustable front seats, a capable infotainment system, automatic climate control, and a highly customizable interior. Although the front seats offer plenty of support, the same cant be said about the rear seats which feel like an afterthought. With minimal legroom on offer, they are best used as an extra cargo space, which is required since the cargo capacity is limited to just 10 cubic feet.

The style-focused interior also lacks any sort of storage room to keep a zesty drink on your next trip. That being said, visibility is excellent because of the slightly raised seats, and the comfortable ergonomics suit its character well. With the new model, Ferrari has also added a wind deflector to keep the cabin comfortable at higher speeds with the top down, and also offers more options like ventilated front seats with neck-warming technology. Being GT cars, all four models get a 2 + 2 seating configuration

The rear seats of both the Ferrari Portofino M and Aston Martin DB11 Volante can only be considered as extra storage space because of the minuscule legroom on offer. In comparison, the BMW M8 Competition and Bentley Continental GT offer usable rear seats. Because of the convertible configuration, trunk space is limited on all four models, but the BMW M8 Competition manages to carve out a lot more space and is the most practical GT car. Some notable interior features include:

  • 18-way power-adjustable front seats
  • Keyless entry
  • Leather seats with ventilation and neck warming (Option)
  • Wind deflector
  • Flat-bottom steering wheel with shift-light and carbon-fiber paddles

What’s there to keep you entertained?

The infotainment system is usually glossed over when we talk about a Ferrari, but for a GT car that can munch miles on the highway, a good infotainment system is key. Fortunately, the Portofino M gets a modern 10.3-inch centrally mounted touchscreen system with all the modern features like Bluetooth, USB, Satellite radio, navigation, and more. However, you have to pay extra for Apple CarPlay and smartphone integration, which is usually available as standard even on most bargain-basement commuter cars.

Customers can also opt for a 1,500W 12-speaker premium audio system by JBL with quantum logic surround technology. Even a 6-disc CD/DVD changer is available as an option, although we wonder who would opt for it in this day and age. Ferrari also offers an additional 7-inch display for the passenger to play with that includes telematics, navigation, and more. Some notable infotainment features include:

  • 10.3-inch touchscreen system
  • 7-inch passenger display (Optional)
  • 1500W 12-speaker JBL surround sound system (Optional)
  • Apple CarPlay smartphone integration (Optional)
  • Bluetooth, and satellite radio connectivity
  • Built-in navigation
  • 6-disc CD/DVD changer with multimedia playback

2022 Ferrari Portofino M Convertible Exterior

9.0/10

Ferrari has always been known for making some of the prettiest cars in the market, and the 2022 Ferrari Portofino M is no different. At its launch, it looked a lot better and modern than the Ferrari California it replaced. It definitely manages to stand out among other GT cars with a smiling front fascia and a curvy and elegant design that extends all the way to the rear. With the roof up, you can easily mistake the Portofino M for a regular coupe.

A lot of carbon-fiber accents are also provided to emphasize sportiness and character. Like most Ferraris, the Portofino M also gets plenty of customizable options right from the factory, including unique dial colors and carbon fiber packages. Overall, the Portofino M looks exceptionally good for a GT car. The car weighs 3,638 lbs, making it the lightest option in the competition.

From a design standpoint, all four models take a different approach. Both the Ferrari Portofino M and Aston Martin DB11 Volante get an aggressive and sporty design compared to the Bentley Continental GT with its bold and elegant design. The BMW M8 slots somewhere in the middle with a more conservative design. The Ferrari Portofino M is noticeably more compact than the rest with a shorter wheelbase. Some notable exterior features include:

  • Automatic LED headlights and taillights
  • Metal-folding roof
  • 20-inch alloy wheels
  • Quad-outlet exhaust with rear diffuser
  • Carbon-fiber rear diffuser and exterior accents

2022 Ferrari Portofino M Convertible Safety

2.0/10

As you would expect, the Ferrari Portofino M hasn’t gone through any safety tests. Based on a similar platform as the Roma, the Portofino M gets an aluminum alloy chassis with 12 different sections to improve structural rigidity. Since the Portofino M is designed for road use than its stablemates, Ferrari also offers several driver assistance features like automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, surround-view cameras, and more as options. However, the standard feature list is limited to the basics like traction control, stability control, an array of airbags, and more. Some notable safety features include:

  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection (Option)
  • Blind-spot monitoring (Option)
  • Adaptive cruise control (Option)
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • 360-degree camera system (Option)
  • SVR assistance systems

2022 Ferrari Portofino M Convertible Competition

8.0/10

2022 Ferrari Portofino M vs 2021 Bentley Continental GT V8

The Bentley Continental GT is one of the oldest and most popular GT cars in the market with a no-compromise design. Although the older generation had a lot of shortcomings that left it vulnerable to more modern GTs, the whole range received a significant update with better handling and performance, almost matching the Ferrari Portofino M in some aspects. The Continental GT also gets a torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system as standard, and a lot more space on the inside compared to the Portofino M, making it a better grand tourer.

2022 Ferrari Portofino M vs 2022 Aston Martin DB11 Volante

Like the Ferrari Portofino M, the DB11 Volante also gets a more aggressive and sporty design. Being GT cars, comfort is an important factor, and surprisingly, the Ferrari offers a more supple and comfortable ride compared to the DB11 Volante which can get uncomfortable on rough roads. Although the DB11 Volante handles better, the V8 engine lets it down when compared to the Ferrari Portofino M, which offers better performance and a higher top speed. So, looking at it from a GT perspective, the Portofino M easily takes the lead here, thanks to better performance and a comfortable ride. The hard-top roof of the Portofino M is also another advantage over the DB11 Volante.

2022 Ferrari Portofino M vs 2022 BMW M8 Competition

If we gloss over the badges and look at the features and performance on offer, the BMW M8 Competition gets everything the Ferrari offers and more for half the price. Unlike the Portofino M, you also get a lot more driver assistance and advanced features as standard with the M8 competition. With a lot more interior and trunk space, the M8 can also seat 4 passengers in reasonable comfort, and squeeze in their luggage with more cargo capacity. Overall, if you don’t have a lot to spend, the M8 Competition is an excellent alternative.

2022 Ferrari Portofino M Convertible Final Verdict

Compared to the Ferrari California it replaces, the Portofino is improved in every conceivable way, and the formula is made even better with the new M model. It follows the typical GT recipe with a powerful engine under the hood and a comfortable and high-tech cabin. The Portofino M also looks like a Ferrari should, and gets the signature exhaust note associated with fast Ferraris. The new updated powertrain and features also make the whole package a lot more appealing than before for a modest price increase. Overall, if you’re looking for your first Ferrari or a capable GT car that can munch miles in style, look no further than the 2022 Ferrari Portofino M.
