    How do get the pictures from the production line?
    Mine RP is in stage 90 and still have not seen a picture from the factory. Do I have to sign up for something?

    You have to register with Ferrari online to get the pictures. Your dealer can help with this if you have not done so. The pictures tend to lag actual production by several weeks.

    Not sure I follow your train of thought.
    If you cancel the order now and then reorder, you will probably not see the car until the same time next year. Are you located where there are heaps of snow? The Port is a GT, so unless there's a lot of snow, why not use it? At any rate, you could also just keep it in storage until March, then you're sure to get your car ready for spring.

    If I cancell Il buy a used Ferrari, not a lot of snow but wind and rain, but I won't use it until march, the problem is the warranty will kick in the minute I take it irrespective if I drive it or not.

    lol, taste is a personal thing. :)
    Hopefully I will have a similar photo to post soon.
    On the other hand, whenever I see a supercar on black wheels all I can think is:

    I think that those are the best-looking wheels of the ones that Ferrari offers. But they don't compare to the Fikse Profil 5 wheels that are going on my Portofino.

    I ordered a custom offset set of FM/5’s from Doug and Jim Fikse back in 1993. Very high quality wheels. Did not know they were still in business.

    They are in British Colombia now. The Portofino wheels will be my fourth set of Fiske wheels.

    It is 6 months now since I posted my personal experience with trying to order this color and eventually having to change my mind.
    Since then it seems that this thread has gone dead.
    I am very curious, hasn't anyone else anything to share on this topic?
    Anyone else that had ordered that color and stayed with it, or changed his mind? (I mean, ordred in 2019, not old orders from 2017 or 2018)
    Did anyone else try to order Rosso Portofino in the meantime?
    Can anyone else confirm my experience of Ferrari anti-selling the color? ( they claimed that both the price and the waiting time had doubled, so I changed the color in my order)
    Or has anyone else asked about the color price and got told that it has actually not changed?

    Ordered my Portofino in August 2018 where Rosso Portofino was not classed as a problematic colour. Was urged to change to e.g. Rosso Corsa multiple times, but stuck with it. Nothing happened until a few weeks ago where it suddenly accelerated from status 20 to 85 in appx a week. It is ready for delivery in the coming week at the dealership, and I am very happy I waited. Another bonus is that I got the ADAS pack, the AIRS neck warmer, the RSFV ventilated seats and the SMRT smartphone connection which were not available on earlier models.

    The colour really stands out and the price stayed static at EUR 7.400 tax free.

    Great! Congrats.

    When you say "orderded in August 2018" you mean the 1st deposit, or the 2nd deposit with the final configuration?

    I made the 1st deposit in (end)Sept 2018, the final configuration (with Rosso Corsa) and 2nd deposit on June 2019 (I got too those that you mentioned :) ) and the car came to the dealership on 15 Oct 2019.

    1st deposit in August 2018 when I did the initial configuration, final configuration confirmed in September 2019 and delivery end November 2019. We usually only do one deposit and final payment close to delivery here.

    ΟK, great!

    I am curious to see what has happened with new clients, trying to order in 2019 and especially the 2nd half of the year.

    I saw a rosso portofino 812 in person and fell in love with that color. I specd my 812 this past June with rosso portofino and placed a deposit on the 20th. A week later when the factory punched the ticket/accepted the order my guy called me and said that my car would be a MY 2020 spring build and that r. portofino would delay it 6 months. He thought the delay was just the factory discouraging ordering that color. After all the bru ha ha surrounding the difficulties with that paint it I decided to go with r. mugello (after all, where there's smoke....). Anyway, I had second thoughts and on October 5 I asked about paint and the car was already on the line. Shame, it is a beautiful color in person. But ultimately I decided to go old school.

    Ordered and spec'd RP Portofino November 2018 for a May 2019 delivery (UK). Was advised in January 2019 that RP would delay car six months but that I could still have a May 19 delivery if I changed colour. I stuck with RP and car eventually arrived at dealer two weeks ago. It is gorgeous and ready to be delivered to me 1st January 2020. Having seen the car, I'm glad I waited.
