Maserati considers more models
Maserati is actively considering both cars, but according to Autocar, the option most favored by Maserati bosses is a smaller entry level coupe positioned below the upcoming GranTurismo. To save costs, the small two-seater could be built off a shortened version of the Quattroporte platform, a move that would enable the new model to be priced below the £50,000 mark.
Insiders suggest that, if given the green-light, the new coupe would likely receive a revised version of Maserati’s 4.2L V8, detuned to around 350bhp and mated to a semi-automatic gearbox with paddle-shifters. With the GranTurismo growing in size to rival mega-coupes like the Mercedes CL, there’s definitely a gap in Maserati’s lineup for a new smaller model.
