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.
