Thank Frankel it’s Friday: The 308 GT4 is the Ferrari Roma’s true ancestor

Even before almost anyone’s seen it in the flesh, the new Ferrari Roma appears to have acquired something of an identity crisis. Some have referred to it as a Portofino coupé – and with good reason because it shares so much of the structure and drivetrain of Ferrari’s entry level convertible, while on this site I see it being likened to a modern 365GTC/4, still far and away my favourite Ferrari with more than two seats. I, on the other hand, see its compact dimensions and positioning not as a supercar or GT, but sporting daily driver, and think of it as the new Dino Ferrari has been threatening to make for so long.
