The drop-top Maserati looks fantastic.
The CarBuzz spy photographers just spotted the drop-top 2023 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible (also known as the GranCabrio) testing in the snow. These images come hot off the heels of a new rumor claiming that the GranCabrio will arrive on the market in 2024, the same year that the coupe is set to go on sale.
This is not our first official look at the GranTurismo's soft-top counterpart; Maserati shared teaser images of a camouflaged GranCabrio last year, but those pictures were dark and didn't show much detail. Though this test mule still wears a Maserati-themed camo wrap, it is our best look yet at the 2024 GranCabrio.
To no one's surprise, the GranCabrio looks nearly identical to the GranTurismo apart from the roof. Maserati stuck with a traditional fabric convertible top rather than a folding metal retractable roof, a decision that we think helps retain more classic styling. Based on the wheels and the visible exhaust ports, this appears to be the Trofeo version, the most potent gas-powered GranCabrio that will be available.
We expect the GranCabrio to offer the same three trims as its coupe sibling. The Modena and Trofeo will both get Maserati's 3.0-liter twin-turbo Nettuno V6 engine producing 490 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque or 550 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, respectively.
As for the Folgore, that model will rely on three electric motors, one positioned at the front and two at the rear. Together they will generate a higher output than either of the gas-powered models, 760 hp and 996 lb-ft of torque. The coupe version can hit 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds, so we imagine the GranCabrio will be a few tenths slower.
Pricing for the GranTurismo Modena starts at $174,000, while the Trofeo costs $207,000. We don't know how much the Folgore costs yet, but expect the GranCabrio to be more expensive than its coupe counterpart.
