Porsche vs. Ferrari is a classic matchup for supercar connoisseurs, and it’s just as natural to dig deep in a Ferrari Portofino vs. Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS comparison. The Porsche 911 has earned respect as one of the most recognizable sports cars on the road, but any head-to-head comparison will show you that it can’t keep up with the Prancing Horse.


Powertrain and Performance

The 911 Carrera 4 GTS is no slouch in terms of performance, but the Portofino is clearly in a class of its own:

  • Power: The Portofino produces up to 591 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque; the 911 Carrera 4 GTS offers a relatively weak 450 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque.
  • 0-60-mph Time: The Porsche jumps off the line quickly, reaching 60 mph in 3.6 seconds (if you pay for the optional Sport Chrono package), but it’s edged out by the Portofino, which can reach the same speed in 3.5 seconds.
  • Top Speed: This is where the Portofino flexes its output advantage, with a top speed of 200 mph. The 911 Carrera 4 GTS falls behind with a maximum speed of 192 mph.

Design of the Portofino vs. 911 Carrera 4 GTS

The Portofino is longer, wider, and slightly taller than the 911 Carrera GTS, but that doesn’t stop it from slicing through the air with stunning aerodynamic efficiency. While the Portofino’s body is sculpted with this in mind, there are a few specific flourishes that might seem small, but do a lot of work to ensure that the car can tear up the track with ease:

  • Headlights: The Ferrari’s headlight assembly follows the crest line of the front wheel arches, but this does more than provide a striking visual effect. There are partially concealed air curtain intakes by the headlights, and they vent air into the front of the wheel housing and send it along the scooped sides of the car. This design helps reduce drag.
  • Taillights: The taillights are positioned farther apart than on previous Ferraris, but once again this is not just for show. This design allows the Portofino to accommodate a longer spoiler, which in turn allows for an enhanced area of controlled airflow, which in turn reduces drag.
  • Side Air Vents: The flanks of the vehicle offers more aerodynamic efficiency than even its sculpted body suggests. There are side air vents that take advantage of an air extraction fin and a well-defined belt-line to relieve pressure from the inside of the wheel arch.

Portofino vs. 911 Carrera 4 GTS: Interior

The Portofino offers an interior that is at one more spacious and more comfortable than the 911 Carrera 4 GTS. Here’s what that means for you:

  • Cargo Space: The Porsche offers a paltry 4.4 cubic feet of trunk space — the Ferrari, meanwhile, offers a spacious 10.3 cubic feet for your cargo.
  • Passenger Touchscreen: While both cars boast center infotainment touchscreen systems, only the Portofino has a passenger touchscreen that displays driving and telemetry data.
  • Adjustable Seats: Both vehicles offer power-adjustable seats, but the Portofino gives you more fine-grained control of your driving position thanks to 18-way power adjustment. The 911 Carrera 4 GTS only offers 14-way power-adjustable seats.
