No new sports cars from Maserati until 2020!

Bad news for fans and enthusiasts of Maserati sports cars! Soon the Bologna-based manufacturer of exclusive luxury vehicles will have no new sports cars in its product lineup as Maserati is moving to focus on other vehicles. This was recently revealed by Giulio Pastore, managing director of Maserati’s European division, to the CAR Magazine.

Maserati’s GranTurismo and GranCabrio are still being produced at the carmaker’s production facilities at its Viale Ciro Menotti headquarters in Modena, Italy. However, that won’t be for long. Production of the GranTurismo and GranCabrio twins is bound to end sometime in 2017. This news would have been easier to take had there been replacement models for the GranTurismo and GranCabrio in 2018, but sadly, there aren’t.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that Maserati won’t be producing sports cars anymore. Pastore quipped that a new era of sports cars was on the drawing board, since Maserati can’t do without them. He indicated that a standalone coupe and convertible were being planned. Maserati’s next sports cars replacing the GranTurismo and GranCabrio are still expected to arrive in 2019, although it’s most likely to turn up in 2020.

Maserati Alfieri production delayed, may be set for 2020 or 2021 launch

It wasn’t too long ago when Maserati took the wraps off what appears to be the most gorgeous concept coupe ever made. The Alfieri coupe premiered at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and since then, many enthusiasts have anticipated what Maserati is actually bringing to the table. Initial reports claimed that we’re about to see the Alfieri on the road this 2016. The year is about to end and so far, we don’t see it coming. There were reports that say 2018 is the year of its arrival, but apparently it has once again been postponed.

According to Maserati’s initial announcement, the Alfieri’s production model will be available in either 4-wheel or rear-wheel drive systems as well as in convertible and coupe body frames. That probably got true car fans even more excited. The Alfieri is one excellent concept as it carries with it a charm that easily electrifies the crowd. As much as we’re hoping the fabulous GT coupe to be a production model real soon, there will be a wait of at least a few years more. Considering our assumptions are correct, Maserati plans on selling this in showrooms by the year 2020. That’s equivalent to 3-4 more years of sitting and waiting.

Maserati Europe’s managing director Giulio Pastore spoke with Autocar recently to explain the postponement of Alfieri’s much anticipated release. Pastore openly explained how they are planning to introduce the new GranCabrio and GranTurismo first before introducing the Alfieri to the market. Whatever the case may be, postponing the release of Alfieri brings together the brand’s well-known beautiful 2-seater GT cars. It serves more like a prelude that something bigger is in the offing.

Alfa Romeo planning 6C Coupe, will be based on Maserati Alfieri

Alfa Romeo has just rolled out the 4C but this model isn’t enough to take on rivals such as the Jaguar F-Type or the Porsche 911. As a result, the Italian company owned by Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles is working on a more potent model rumored to be called 6C.

What’s more interesting is that the upcoming vehicle will be based on the Maserati Alfieri Concept that was unveiled earlier this year at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

Maserati already announced in its 5-year business plan that it will produce the Alfieri Concept and will be introduced in 2016. The Alfa Romeo 6C will follow in 2017 featuring the well-known shield-shaped front grille and stylish LED headlights.

2016 Maserati Alfieri will be identical to the concept version

Back in March, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Maserati introduced the Alfieri Concept, a vehicle that celebrated company’s 100th anniversary and said much about the design DNA of future Maseratis. Due to the positive feedback, the Italian manufacturer owned by Fiat decided to build the Alfieri Concept and officially announced in its 5-year business plan the production version will arrive in 2016.

During an interview with the global design for parent company, Fiat, Lorenzo Ramaciotti told PistonHeads that the final version of the vehicle will look just like the concept car. “It will be impossible to see the difference”, Ramaciotti said.

We already know that the Maserati Alfieri will be offered exclusively with a V6 engine. The entry-level version will deliver 350 hp, but don’t worry, because Maserati will also offer a version delivering 450 hp, while the most powerful version will offer 520 hp.

If the production version of the Alfieri Concept was just a rumor, today it became official as Maserati has just announced its 5-year business plan. If the Alfieri Coupe will arrive in 2016, the Maserati Alfieri Cabrio will make its debut in 2017, while the new Granturismo will be introduced in 2018.

The RWD versions of the Maserati Alfieri Coupe and Cabrio models will be powered by a V6 engine rated at 410 hp, but a more powerful V8 engine rated at 450 hp or 520 hp will be available on AWD versions of the models.

In 2015, Maserati will finally introduce its Levante SUV, which will receive a V6 petrol engine that generates 350 hp, as well as a more powerful version that delivers 425 hp, A V8-powered Levante will get more than 560 hp. Still, Maserati will be offer with diesel engines that will deliver 250 hp, 275 hp and 340 hp.

Maserati might hike output as well as include the Alfieri sports car to its product lineup after advance sales at the marque nearly tripled over the figure in 2013, people privy with the matter told Bloomberg News. Maserati chief executive Harald Wester told Bloomberg in an interview that the brand is receiving 3,500 orders monthly, which would amount to 42,000 unit sales this year.

Maserati sold 15,400 vehicles in 2013. Maserati posted a 331-percent surge in sales in the United States in the first quarter of 2014 to 2,368 units. Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne is due to unveil next month a new business plan for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which may entail a commitment to proceed with a high-end sports car based on the Alferi Concept unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show in March, sources said.

Automotive News Europe reported in March that Maserati could start output of the Alfieri sports coupe within two years, after the rollout of the Levante SUV in 2015. Maserati aims the Alfieri to rival the Porsche 911 Turbo and the Jaguar F-Type. According to sources, Fiat mulls adding a third shift at Maserati’s Grugliasco site after around 50 workers spent some nights putting finishing touches on Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte.

Maserati made quite a buzz with the Alfieri Concept at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and it appears that things are going to be very interesting for the Italian company owned by Fiat-Chrysler. According to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne the Alfieri platforms and engines are already available and technically, the production could start in 24-48 months!

"The only thing I can tell you is that it's a beautiful machine," added Marchionne. The official press release said that the Alfieri Concept was designed to show us the upcoming Maseratis.

We also expect the next Granturismo to take lots of styling cues from it. But still, Fiat design chief Lorenzo Ramaciotti wanted to underline what Marchionne said. "We stuck close to reality with this concept," said Ramaciotti. "It's 85 to 90 percent feasible (that we will build it). There's a lead time of 24 months."

For the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Maserati announced that it will unveil a new concept car that will outline the upcoming cars of the next 100 years. Today, the new concept showed up on the Web ahead of its official debut! Ladies and gentlemen, this is the Maserati Alfieri Concept.

The new silver coupe shows aggressive design lines and the front end is dominated by the big grille featuring the well-known Maserati logo. Meanwhile, the rear end features large fenders, LED taillights as well as a two-pipe exhaust system.

As expected, the new Maserati Alfieri Concept previews the next Granturismo and we expect a production version of the Alfieri to be RWD and powered by a V6 as well as a more potent V8 engine. Rivals for this car are the Porsche 911, Jaguar F-Type but also the brand new Corvette Stingray.

Earlier today we showed you the first images but now the Maserati Alfieri Concept became official at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The new 2+2 concept car celebrates company’s centenary and says much about the design DNA of future Maseratis.

The new concept car bears the name of Alfieri a.k.a. the most prominent of the Maserati brothers but also the engineering genius who founded “Officine Alfieri Maserati” in Bologna a century ago. Alfieri Concept is a reminder that Maserati has a remarkable racing heritage and a unique tradition in exotic GT cars.

The new concept car is an Italian style 2+2 like the 1957 3500 GT, the 1959 5000 GT and the 1969 Indy and could preview a new Granturismo. Another inspiration for the new Maserati Concept was the Maserati A6 GCS-53 designed by Pininfarina in 1954. For those who don’t know, the A6 GCS-53 was an iconic piece of automotive technology and featured a diminutive cabin positioned almost over the rear wheels, a seemingly endless bonnet and long, sinuous wings stretching nearly to the rear wheels.
