    Given as to how the car is launched in Portofino this Thursday evening, I thought we should have a thread for our first images and in the flesh reactions.

    Really looking forward to it as if iit does look even better in the metal, as is customary with these renders, it could be quite an 'entry level' Ferrari.

    I will try and post images very shortly after the event assuming we don't have our phones stickered.

    Thank you Tim for sharing that I'm certain it will be a privilege for everyone to see here these exclusive images very shortly after the event, as well as reading your expert opinion about how the Portofino really looks in the flesh.

    Saw that, was thinking the same :)

    Are they building a pier of sorts?

    I was wondering the same. Is that really a temporary pier they have constructed?

    Absolutely, look at that. I think Richard Hammond called it "an Italian Whitby" lol.

    I read somewhere that Portofino only has something like 470 actual residents, its the tourists that flood it. Pretty impressive reputation for such a tiny village and I can only assume Ferrari has literally taken over the entire village although I regretfully very much doubt we are being put up at the Splendido!

    Yes. Here at Portofino right now. Just arrived and it's 1:30 am (don't ask - lost luggage) and Ferrari is practicing their light show. We have a room at Splendido Mare and our balcony over looks the harbor and the light show. It's going to be over the top and a once in a lifetime party!

    I'm not posting any pictures or videos as it would just spoil the fun!

    Also saw at least 4 Ferrari Portofinos in our park garage under covers with security watching over...
