    I want to see a Portofino with GTC4Lusso T's rim design. :)

    Now, Ferrari says it couldn't sell the Cali to women. At least, not in the numbers they intended. It doesn't look so good for the Portofino either, this poor thing couldn't even see over the wheel.



    Now I get that she's Malay, but 160cm (5'3") is short but it's not tiny. For comparison, the average American woman is only 5'4"....

    My wife is 6ft and she was struggling with the top of windscreen being to close to her head.

    TDF looks awesome.

    This is seriously one of those cars that you could get it in every color.

    I'm also 5'3'', wonder if Ferrari sells custom-made seat cushion for short people. :D

    Same thing with the GTC4Lusso btw

    There are some things about Ferrari's marketing that I just don't get.

    They wanted to sell more cars to women, so they created the original Cali. That only sort of worked. So they tried to split the baby with the T. Still sold a ton of cars, but not to women. So now they've built what is clearly a quite masculine car, but they're saying it's a family car. But Ferrari already makes that car, it's called the GTC4Lusso.

    In two years I'll own one of these things (I agree with anunakki that there's no point in eating the depreciation on a new one). The car is brilliant, but I think the marketing is off. There are lots of people who just want a usable sports car. I'm not sure they should be aiming for specific demographics. Just make a brilliant car. People will always buy a brilliant product that's made by a prestige brand.

    I don’t care about marketing or the whole feminine thing. Loved our Cali 30, Cali T and am looking forward to the Portofino.

    I would imagine so. Similarly, the 488 had another set of optional wheels that not a lot of people seem to know about.

    The seats look like the Daytona option.

    Excellent sleuthing. Thank you. I really like those wheels. Just because its not on the configurator doesn't mean its not available. It sometimes takes them a little time to get everything pulled together.

    Those 20" wheel design really transform the car. Even the California looks way different with this design.

    Well, to my eyes Ferrari has been bangled. I see corvette, Aston, and Lexus all crammed into something that has a Ferrari badge.
