The Roma is pure Italian romance – aka drop-dead gorgeous – with a look that harkens back to the 250 GT and other past great Ferrari grand tourers. The Portofino M, meanwhile, reminds us of the 812 Superfast – may be a bit more modern, angular, and laid back looking than the Roma. (Dare we say a family-friendly Ferrari?) So if mom can’t stand the thought of not bringing the kids, the Portofino may be the perfect car for her.

So if mom wants a car of her own used exclusively for zipping around town or date night, the Roma may be the perfect getaway car. The Portofino, however, lets her take you and the kids everywhere she goes.
