Additional engineering improvements include a one-piece-cast exhaust header to eliminate turbo lag and a variable boost management system to provide optimal torque in every gear.

Ferrari has released photos of the new convertible model it will unveil at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

The name "Portofino" derives from a "glamorous town on the Italian Riviera", says Evo, bringing an end to the traditional California name that has been handed to Ferrari's drop-top supercars since the 1950s.

The very idea of an "entry-level" Ferrari may be contradictory, but the new Ferrari Portofino is indeed the company's most affordable model. A third-generation electronic rear differential - which Ferrari has dubbed E-Diff3 - has been added, integrated with the F1-Trac system, while it's also the first of Ferrari's GT's to get electric power steering. Because the V8 sits behind the front axle, the Portofino's weight distribution is 46/54 percent front/rear.

Ferrari has pulled the wraps off its new Portofino - the replacement for the convertible California T. Ferrari claims a 0-60 miles per hour time of around 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 198 miles per hour.

The design of the new Ferrari Portofino reflects the latest design philosophy of the Italian supercar maker, and looks in line with other new Ferraris like 812 Superfast and GTC4Lusso.

When Ferrari debuted their California model in 2008, many car-enthusiasts were excited.

The old car's magnetic dampers have been upgraded with dual-coil technology, giving both a useful reduction in roll but also better ride quality, particularly over challenging surfaces. The all-new Ferrari Portofino is expected to hit the market next year.

Overall dimensions have slightly increased on the California, with the Portofino measuring 16mm longer and 28mm wider, although it is 4mm shorter. The front gets full-LED headlights, and the headlights feature an innovative air intake which vents into the front wheelarch and exits along the flank to reduce drag.

The Portofino uses a folding hardtop roof to protect occupants from the elements. A new wind deflector cuts air flow in the cabin by 30 per cent when the roof is open, reducing buffeting when travelling at speed.
