Ferrari lineup fresh and growing ahead of first SUV’s arrival

Industry

For Ferrari, the next two years will have a flurry of fresh products.

The Italian brand’s lineup is seeing expansion throughout, with the additions of the Roma grand tourer, Portofino M convertible and SF90 Stradale plug-in hybrid.

After Ferrari’s grand tourer and supercar lineup is bolstered, a big addition is likely to arrive in 2022: the Purosangue, the brand’s first SUV, set to be the newest addition to the growing group of exotic and ultraluxury SUVs. It will also pick up the slack for Ferrari’s GTC4Lusso and GTC4Lusso T four-seat shooting brake, which ended production this year.

Portofino M: Ferrari is replacing the Portofino with the Portofino M, which has more power, thanks to a 612-hp V-8 turbo engine, up from 592 hp in the Portofino. It features a new eight-speed gearbox, replacing the seven-speed transmission.

The Portofino M is the first Ferrari convertible to get an eight-speed transmission. U.S. deliveries will begin in the summer of 2021.

Roma: The Roma, new to the lineup, is a 2+2 coupe named after Italy’s capital. The Roma’s design features clean, sleek lines that Ferrari says represent “a contemporary representation of the carefree, pleasurable way of life that characterized Rome in the 1950s and 1960s.” The Roma is powered by a 3.9-liter midfront V-8 engine with 612 hp. U.S. deliveries will begin at the end of 2020.

F8 Tributo: Deliveries of the F8 Tributo convertible began this year following the launch of the coupe late last year.

812 Superfast/812 GTS: U.S. deliveries of the 812 GTS, the convertible version of the 12-cylinder front-engine 812 Superfast, will begin by year end. Spy photos of an 812 Superfast with performance enhancements began to pop up this summer. That would likely be called the 812 GTO, but it remains unclear when it will officially break cover.

Monza: Production of the retro-styled supercar that comes in one- and two-seat configurations — the SP1 and SP2 — is ongoing. But with a run of fewer than 500 vehicles combined, production will likely be wrapping up soon.

SF90 Stradale: The coronavirus pandemic delayed the start of production of Ferrari’s first plug-in hybrid, the 986-hp SF90 Stradale. It was due to be delivered to customers in the first half of 2020, but now European deliveries will begin in October, with U.S. deliveries to follow in 2021.

Purosangue: Ferrari’s entry into the increasingly crowded exotic and ultraluxury SUV segment, the Purosangue, is still set for a launch around 2022. Previous reports indicate it will sit on a front-midengine architecture, one of two that will equip all future Ferraris, with a hybrid drivetrain and new suspension with variable ground clearance.
