Coupe will launch in 2016, followed by convertible in 2017.
From the moment we set eyes on the stunning Alfieri concept in Geneva, we have been waiting to hear news the sports car will make production. That day has now arrived, with the Italian carmaker revealing a coupe will launch in 2016 followed by a convertible in 2017. Where the concept was based on the Granturismo, Maserati’s F-Type rivaling Alfieri will be based on an adapted version of the platform underpinning the Ghibli and Quattroporte.
The entry-level rear-wheel-drve Alfieri will be powered by a 404-hp 3.0-liter turbocharged V6, while range-topping variants will be offered with AWD in 444 and 513 hp states of tune. Maserati also announced its other future plans, including an all-new V8-powered Granturismo set to arrive in 2018, the Levante SUV is slated to launch in 2015, and the Ghibli and Quattroporte lineups will be expanded with more engine variants by 2018. Maserati’s five-year plan hopes to increase sales from 15,000 units last year to 75,000 by 2018.
