The Ferrari Portofino M, a beloved member of the Italian sports car manufacturer’s portfolio, has been officially laid to rest.
Having first been unveiled in 2019, the Portofino M saw its popularity soar amongst car enthusiasts and Ferrari aficionados alike. Boasting an impressive 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine and producing 612 horsepower, the Portofino M was a remarkable machine, capable of rocketing from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds.
Unfortunately, Ferrari has now opted to ceasing production of the Portofino M, citing a “strategic decision” as the reason for doing so. While the reasoning behind the move is unclear, some have speculated that the decision was made in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and its effects on the automotive industry.
The Portofino M’s departure will be felt significantly by Ferrari fans, as the vehicle was a beloved member of the brand’s line-up. It provided a wonderful balance of performance and comfort, making it an ideal choice for both track days and long drives.
While the Ferrari Portofino M is no more, it will live on in the hearts of countless car enthusiasts the world over.
The Italian automaker has yet to announce what, if anything, will take the place of the beloved Portofino M, leaving many to speculate as to what may come next. Until then, all that remains is to bid a fond farewell to a true classic.
