2 new Maserati-coupes coming?
After the rather intimate press introduction of the new Maserati Quattroporte earlier this week, there is now more clarity on the future sports models of the brand with the trident. Maserati CEO Harald Wester had already mentioned several times that a new coupe was being considered for 2015, but there was no more information on that matter. Now, however, a few journalists from the South of France have reported interesting news; 2 completely new models are coming. Maserati wants to offer its clients everything they could possibly desire and will thus be going head-on against the Germans.
Not only a new GT, but also a mid-engined coupe is coming. Beforehand, it was very unclear whether the GranTurismo would get a worthy successor, but according to the production scheme of October, this too seems very reasonable. Even better; next to two new introductions in 2015, there is another one planned in 2016. We are carefully assuming this will be the successor of the amazing GranCabrio.
To make it easy for you, dear reader, we’ve filled in the scheme. The new light-footed mid-engined sports car will presumably be built in Modena together with the Alfa Romeo 4C. Our guess is a slightly longer platform than the Alfa and V6 and V8 engines behind the driver. We’re talking Porsche 911 and Audi R8-grounds here. Then there is the new GranTurismo, which will possibly be produced in Turin and in larger numbers than the current model. This model will share its platform with the Quattroporte/Ghibli/Levante. For this model, too, we’re expecting Maserati to offer more possibilities to its customers in order to be able to compete with comparable machinery from Germany. In short, Maserati will soon have the world for the taking. A range which completely suits the potential of this wonderful brand.
