Learn about the Ferrari California


Originally made available in 2008, the Ferrari California represented a number of firsts for the iconic Italian manufacturers. Not only was it the first model to be equipped with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and aluminum folding roof, but the Ferrari California was also the first Ferrari vehicle to be designed by the in-house creative team. Thought to be an entry-level model for those unfamiliar with the brand, the convertible featured Ferrari's trademarked luxury and blistering power. Its final year of production was 2017, as the vehicle was effectively replaced by the Ferrari Portofino in 2018.
