That's not just because of what it’s made out of but because of how it’s built. Like other cars in this segment, Ferrari uses an aluminum structure to cut weight while maintaining rigidity. However, engineers also made a huge effort to cut down on the number of parts they used to reduce complexity, increase stiffness, and of course reduce weight. One of the most notable improvements can be seen on the Portofino’s A-pillars. On the California T, these were made up of 21parts but the Portofino only requires two. Speaking to , Ferrari technology chief Michael Leiters acknowledged that the supercar manufacturer plans to use the engineering from the Portofino to style all mainstream Ferraris.
