    Check out my pics in the 'Portofino launch and picture thread' - Rosso Portofino colour looks great! Apparently they are starting to produce/deliver more as of start of this year... I have decided to wait.

    They do look beautiful. I think I’m going to stick to Rosso Fiorano, though—it’s one of the colors I liked the most, as I like the idea of a bit darker color. Also, since my order was only placed last August, not sure how far back in the RP queue I would be.

    Mine was ordered Nov. 2017. Ferrari E-mailed me directly that the problem with RP has been fixed and my dealer thinks probably March, but no definite date. US delivery.

    My dealer in Belgium does not have any info on when the RP issue will be fixed.
    When was yours originally ordered?

    Interesting hue; seems close to the Scuderia's almost orange 'red' when Marlboro was the principal sponsor.

    My Dealer just told me today that instead of March delivery Car will not arrive before October due to RP... as here is Ferrari Season from April to end of September I'm checking different options, moving to a less special color (Rosso Corsa, Nero Daytona), another special Color like Rosso Monza (will not change much in terms of delivery) to wait until Car gets delivered or moving to 488 Spider... :(

    Thanks for the info.
    Can you share when was your 1st deposit and when was your spec/2nd deposit done?

    Sorry to hear that. The factory has been telling people that the RP issue is now resolved, so I’m surprised yours is taking that long. When did you pay a deposit?

    Anyone else have an update from their dealer?

    Has anyone got confirmation of production start or a delivery date for their car in Rosso Portofino? They mentioned spring delivery, so I'd expect some confirms soon from the dealers...? Thanks

    Still have not seen 1 customer car delivered to the states. My guess is we will not starting getting the cars until like October. So we will all be paying for a 2019 car and receiving them in 2020 basically. Probably the last time I buy a new Ferrari.

    Steve, if the cars are model year 2020 which for Ferrari starts in July, we will be paying 2020 prices not 2019. Mine is a standard metallic color and was ordered 4 months ago and has not moved into lock down change for options. I was told Ferrari is trying to fill orders for Asia before an environmental change will occur which will require modifications to the Portofino. Looks like the US customers will be slow to get their cars.

    I put my deposit down in October 2017 and order in January 2018. Car was suppose to be delivered September 2018 and now they are saying we wont get Rosso color cars until October 2019. I wanted the car when it was a newer model car. It will no longer be a newer model car when I get my order even if it is a 2020 not a 2019. If the car is not delivered until October 2019 I will have had my deposit down on the car for almost 2 years. That is unacceptable. I would understand if this was a Pista or La Ferrari but this is Ferrari everyday car.

    I was surprised to see a Portofino on display on Saturday at our Cars on 5th show in Naples. I was judging the various classes and explaining to a friend the subtle differences in the various California models while walking the Avenue. When I got to the Portofino I stopped and said I don't know why this model is so different....lol! Beautiful car by the way.

    Fully agreed, it’s been a disappointing purchase experience; something that is supposed to be exciting and special has become frustrating. Not just the massive delay but also the lack of reliable info from the factory / dealer. Ferrari seems to think it can rest on its laurels but there are plenty of choices at these price points... I will be asking for a discount.

    new from italy.
    rosso portofino will be ready for the end of the year ( probably... )
    my order may 2018, no info about the car except this on the last week that say "probably december delivery, but can not be sure about this, so need to keep in touch month by month"

    i still will wait, as Portofino in Rportofino was a good choice, but im starting to doubt as the final idea was alredy to wrap it with a red matte color.

    another matter of delay, seems the adas accessories.

    bye

    FWIW, I switched my August 2018 order from RP to Rosso Fiorano, and it just switched status to 10R. Of course, that doesn’t say when they’ll actually start building it. However, in the last month or so my dealer has taken delivery of a Pista and a Suoerfast in Rosso Fiorano, so at least I know they’re painting that color now.

    I’ve heard others mention they are now at least producing cars in Rosso Portofino... anyone got a delivery date or had it confirmed by the dealer/factory?

    I have not heard any new info. In addition, I have yet to see 1 Ross Portofino customer car any place in the world. The only cars painted in this color on the road are media cars. I have given up on guessing when they will arrive. At this point I will get my car when the replacement for the Portofino comes out lol
