Ferrari Roma Spider Replaces Portofino M

Ferrari’s Entry-Level Convertible: The Roma Spider

Ferrari has reported that the Portofino M hardtop convertible is being ceased. A representative from Ferrari disclosed to Road & Track that their newly launched Roma Spider will become the novice open-air option in the manufacturer’s assortment.

The recently revealed Ferrari Roma Spider features a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 engine that delivers a staggering 612 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque. Unlike the Portofino M, the new Roma is outfitted with a light fabric roof rather than the heavier folding hardtop of its predecessor. Moreover, the Spider has the same 2+2 seating arrangement as the M model.

In 2020, Ferrari introduced the Portofino M, succeeding its predecessor from three years previous. This Car Company had initially released the California back in 2008, and it had undergone chronological facelifts, culminating in the emergence of the California T before the release of the new model. This motor was incorporated with a 4.3-liter V8 N/A engine that produced 453 hp.

In 2014, the “T” designation was added to the California’s name, signifying the addition of two turbochargers that upped the power output to 552 hp. This prompted a renaming of the car to the Portofino, and with it came a further boost in power to 591 hp. The Portofino M was then launched not long after, taking the power output to an impressive 612 hp.

Although those statistics and advancements of that nameplate have been considerable, the Portofino M and its predecessors are not particularly favored memories when it comes to Ferraris. Will the new Roma Spider come to fill that position? Even beyond its great design, we surmise that the new Roma Spider could be a suitable substitution for the two-seater sports car.

Given the Roma Spider’s figures, Ferrari asserts that the speedster can accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a time of 3.4 secs and to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.7 secs. For comparison, its hardtop cousin also gets to 62 mph in the same duration yet attains 124 miles per hour in 9.3 secs. Top velocity is estimated at 199 mph (320 km/h) as stated by Ferrari.
