Although Ferrari hasn't released an official weight figure for the new vehicle, the Portofino is due to be significantly lighter than the California T's 1729kg kerb weight.
Ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show 2017, Ferrari has unveiled a replacement for its California T - dubbed the Ferrari Portofino.
The successor for what started life in 2008 as the F149 California before changing names to California T in 2014 has been named.
Also new in the Ferrari Portofino is Ferrari's third generation electronic rear differential (E-Diff3), which is integrated with F1-Trac, Ferrari's traction control system, and a new electrically assisted power steering. However, the newest addition to Ferrari is said to have a weight distribution of 46/54 front to rear.
Improvements include new pistons and con rods along with redesigned intake and exhaust systems.

The Portofino packs a 3.8-liter V8 turbocharged engine capable of 598 horsepower, up nearly 40 HP over the California T's engine. Instead, the new drop-top's looks are a collaboration between Ferrari's in-house design and aerodynamics teams.
With a maximum power output of 600 cv, it can sprint from 0 to 100 km per hour in 3.5 seconds, Ferrari added.
Although the original Ferrari California was a sales success, it was unloved by enthusiasts due to its less performance-oriented image. The magnetorheological dampers have been updated as well, promising "an even more dynamic, responsive auto that also delivers superior ride comfort". The Ferrari Portofino comes with a supermodel-wide mouth, while air intakes flanking the edges bring the airflow into the front wheel arches. A large touchscreen infotainment system sits at the top of the centre console, while the steering wheel appears to have come from the 812 Superfast. Height has decreased by 4mm with the Portofino's folding hardtop roof standing 1,318mm above the ground. In addition, the Portofino has a new steering wheel, redesigned 18-way adjustable front seats, and a new wind deflector that reduces cabin noise and allows 30% less air flow into the auto.
