It’s been two years since Ferrari introduced the Portofino M and we’ve already seen a handful of tuners offer their take on the convertible.
The latest is Novitec, and they’ve boosted the model to 695 hp (518 kW / 704 PS) and 650 lb-ft (882 Nm) of torque. That’s a sizable improvement over the standard model, which has a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 developing 612 hp (456 kW / 620 PS) and 561 lb-ft (760 Nm) of torque.
The gain was made possible by the addition of sports catalysts as well as a plug-and-play Novitec N-Tronic module, which “introduces newly programmed maps for injection, boost pressure and ignition control into the electronic engine management system.” Thanks to these changes, the Portofino M can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.16 seconds and hit a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h).

If that’s too fast, the company also offers slightly tamer tunes with outputs of 679 hp (506 kW / 688 PS) and 628 lb-ft (851 Nm) of torque as well as 689 hp (514 kW / 699 PS) and 647 lb-ft (877 Nm).
Besides the performance updates, the Portofino M can be equipped with an assortment of carbon fiber accessories including a front splitter, side skirts, and a rear lip spoiler. Customers can also order carbon fiber hood vents and air intake surrounds.
For a sportier stance, the model can be outfitted with sport springs that reduce the ride height by approximately 1.4 inches (35 mm). To further compliment the look, the company has teamed up with Vossen to offer 21- and 22-inch wheels.
Last but not least, Novitec can fulfill “even the most unusual wishes of any Ferrari owner when it comes to the interior design.” In order to do this, they offer a “huge selection” of the finest leathers as well as “Alcantara in a virtually endless variety of colors.”
