Ferrari’s Portofino Now Speaks Mandarin As It Gets Launched In China 23
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Car Of The Year, china, Ferrari, Ferrari 812 Superfast, Ferrari Portofino, Galleries, Guangzhou Auto Show, new cars, prices, Reports on 11 23rd, 2017

Ferrari has brought the new Portofino to China, as part of their 70th anniversary celebrations that featured a program spanning 60 nations.

The successor of the California T will have a starting price of RMB 2,908,000, or $438,382 at today’s exchange rates, in the People’s Republic.

The steep price is due to the local luxury tax imposed on imported vehicles. To understand just how expensive the baby Ferrari really is in China, you should know that for that money one would be able to buy a 488 Spider in the US and keep around $150,000 in their bank account.

Coinciding with the local launch of the Portofino, Ferrari walked away with the ‘China Performance Car of the Year‘ title, which was given to the 812 Superfast by a panel of 29 editors-in-chief, who voted it the most favored in Greater China after several rounds of screening and evaluation. The award was presented to the Prancing Horse in Guangzhou on November 16.

Automobile Magazine Names Its 2017 All-Stars 12
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Acura, Acura NSX, BMW, BMW M2, Car Of The Year, Chevrolet, Chevrolet Bolt, honda, Honda / Acura NSX, Honda Civic, porsche, Porsche 718, porsche cayman, video, VOLVO, Volvo S90 on 03 12th, 2017

Most publications and organizations that name their favorite cars each year go with the top-ten format. But not Automobile. That magazine picks its All-Stars every year by now category or criteria other than what the editors feel are the best on the market.

This year’s pool encompassed 23 contenders from across the market – everything from the humble Honda Civic and the frugal Toyota Prius Prime to the new Aston Martin DB11 and Bentley Bentayga.

The editors evaluated each and every one of them, driving them around the SpeedVegas track and along the twisting mountain roads of Mount Charleston (both in Nevada). At the end of what we’re sure was an exhaustive process, they picked just six, announcing those half-dozen winners at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance this weekend in Florida. And here they are.

Acura NSX


Chevrolet Bolt EV

Honda Civic Hatchback Sport

Porsche 718 Cayman S

Volvo S90

That’s quite the ringing endorsement of Honda’s products, two of which made the final list – while industry powerhouses like Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, Mercedes, FCA, and Ford didn’t get a single of their cars on the Automobile‘s podium this year.

Oh, and in case you were wondering which contenders didn’t make the cut, here’s the rest of the list:

  • Aston Martin DB11
  • Audi A4
  • Bentley Bentayga
  • Cadillac CT6
  • Cadillac XT5
  • Chrysler Pacifica
  • Ford Focus RS
  • Genesis G90
  • Infiniti Q60
  • Jaguar F-Pace
  • Jaguar XE
  • Lincoln Continental
  • Maserati Levante
  • Mazda CX-9
  • Mercedes-Benz E-Class
  • Nissan GT-R
  • Toyota Prius Prime
