Maserati Confirms All-New Sports Car Coming Next Year

During last year’s Capital Markets Day presentation, Maserati announced plans to launch an assortment of new and redesigned models by the end of 2022.

Among the highlights were new versions of the Levante and Quattroporte as well as an all-new crossover. The company also promised to launch the Alfieri, something it had been saying since 2014.

Fast forward to today and the automaker has unveiled an updated roadmap during FCA’s second quarter earnings report. A lot has changed since the previous presentation and the company’s latest roadmap says an all-new sports car will be introduced next year.

While it’s natural to assume this is the Alfieri, the company doesn’t mention it by name and there has been speculation that the Alfieri is effectively dead. That isn’t necessarily bad news, as reports have suggested the new model has a different design that is “even more beautiful” than the Alfieri concept.

2020 will also see the introduction of facelifted versions of the Levante, Ghibli and Quattroporte. There’s no word on what to expect, but the changes shouldn’t be too drastic as proper redesigns are on the horizon.

One year later, Maserati will launch their so-called D-UV. It will be a mid-sized crossover that slots beneath the Levante and is offered with an electric powertrain.

2021 will also see the introduction of a convertible version of Maserati’s white-space sports car. More interestingly, the company will also launch a new GranTurismo. That’s notable as company’s 2018 plan called for the GranTurismo and GranCabrio to be replaced by the Alfieri.

In 2022, the company will introduce the new GranCabrio and redesigned Quattroporte. Both will be available with an electric powertrain.

This being FCA, there had to be a delay of some kind. This time it occurs to the next-generation Levante which has been pushed back to 2023.

Maserati didn’t go into too many specifics, but they confirmed every one of their all-new models will be offered with an electric powertrain. That’s a slight change as the D-UV was originally slated to skip the BEV option and instead be offered with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

    Going to assume that the ghibli is dead after the facelift

    • europeon

      It’s their best selling car, it would be a bad move to kill it. Beside, it’s really just a short wheelbase Quattroporte, both cars being identical otherwise, the R&D cost was already payed.

  • OS

    thought maserati was already dead..

    • no25

      what? boi you crazy

      • OS

        this brand no longer has that exclusive appeal to compete with porsche, it isn’t profitable, and is so outdated engine and tech wise. It’s as good as dead.

        • europeon

          You what? We’re not talking about your mom here.

          • OS

            Found the keyboard warrior

          • Andrewthecarguy

            Actually just the resident Maserati “enthusiast”. And just as in touch with reality as the brand is. 🙂

        • Michelin

          outdated engines ? May be ….. but still more performant than newest Corvette C8 !!!!

    • PK

      if maserati’s dead then why does it have over 9.4 million followers on instagram? “thought maserati was already dead”. boy you’re dead wrong!

      • OS

        because the amount of instagram followers is directly correlated with annual sales figures right? LOL what a stupid comment.

        • Michelin

          Not so stupid!!! This data shows the internet of people on a brand.

        • PK

          social media does come to play when it comes to brand recognition so yes it does matter. sales figures are one thing but the brand image is another!

  • JRP

    It’s the Alfieri.

  • Mr. EP9

    Well all know this road map ain’t happening. At best we’ll get the Alfieri and that’s it.

  • SavetheCamaro

    While the Alfieri is coming next year. The next GranTurismo and GranCabrio will need to have a single nameplate, namely the Shamal.

  • Merc1

    YEAH RIGHT.

    It will years and years before anything new comes out from Maserati.

    M

    • Andrewthecarguy

      I mean, 7 ALL NEW models in 4 years. Who are they kidding??

  • Nordschleife

    In this day in time just give us one coupe and convertible. We don’t need two. Maserati, we ALREADY know we are not getting a sports coupe and a GranTurismo so it’s no need to divert your sales to anything other than one good coupe and convertible.

    • Andrewthecarguy

      My thoughts exactly.
      Need 1 flagship sports car with a drop top variant.
      1 proper S class rival.
      1 better looking SUV, an Italian Range Rover please.

      Finito

  • StrangerGP

    Lol they’re still making these schedules which are never true. We’ll be lucky if they release one brand new model in the upcoming years, the rest are probably going to be facelifts of their current lineup.

  • Bob

    Do the guys making these plans ever pass them over to the engineering teams to implement?

  • Elmediterraneo

    Maserati : making more roadmaps than new models

  • Porkopolis

    Will it have all new Chrysler buttons and infotainment?

    • europeon

      Hello, stupid person regurgitating false rumors! It’s obviously that you have never seen a Maserati with your own eyes, so let me educate you: THERE ARE NO CHRYSLER BUTTONS.

    • Andrewthecarguy

      Right?! Watch out tho, europeon is about to act infantile … oh wait, already done. Lol…

      • europeon

        Sure, bringing proof and debunking lies is infantile AF.

  • Stealth333

    Will it be reliable? Nope.

  • PK

    you still see maserati here and there don’t you? “depends where you at” so no maserati isn’t dead. i would’ve agreed with you if i didn’t see any maserati or their presence on the road but right now that ain’t it chief. you sound like you you hate maserati for some reason. i don’t see the problem with them.

  • europeon

    Ah, stupidity strikes again.

    It’s not Ferrari that put an end to the contract, but Maserati – reasons have been explained so many times, I won’t gonna do it again. You show the same reading comprehension you’ve show in your previous comments.

  • Mr Nobody Important

    Bla bla bla. I will believe it when i see it.
