Maserati teases new model due for May 2020 debut

As of late Maserati has somewhat become a caricature of a company and of its prior self. Truth is, the brand’s offerings tend to be somewhat old and underwhelming when matched up against their competitors. But not for long – a new Maserati is on the horizon.

The brand’s high volume models, the Quattroporte, Ghibli and Levante, are all reasonably new-ish. But departure of the very recently deceased GranTurismo leaves a void in the brand’s product lineup. And given that much of the brand’s cache stems from the image of a fast, curvaceous, Ferrari-hearted luxury coupe, it’s a safe bet that’s what we’ll see.

So what will the new Maserati be? There’s a good chance it will be called GranTurismo. There is a lot of brand and model equity in the name, after all. Or, maybe it’s name will be Modena; it is on the landing page, after all. As for the car’s design, rumor has it that it could be based on 2014’s Alfieri concept and will likely foreshadow what’s to come from the Italian automaker. May 2020 is coming up fast and it’ll be exciting to see what the Maserati has up its sleeve. Here’s to hoping it looks like the aforementioned stunner.

  1. A sister car to the new Ferrari Roma with more rear legroom is all they need.

    Maserati could be the Porsche of FCA, but Ferrari thinks that it’s Ferrari’s job.

    They really need to see how VW Group handles their brand differentiation, including the internal competition.

    Is it too soon to kill off Lancia when it’s one model outsells the entire Alfa Romeo RANGE in Italy?
    You can ask all those millennials now buying cars, about Lancia, they know what a Stratos and Delta Integrale and 037 from their rally computer games are, but they don’t really relate to Alfa because they haven’t really won anything for many decades and haven’t appeared in competitive cyber form anywhere.

    1. Is there still the same time up now that Ferrari has been separated?

      Traditionally the GT would be a shortened version of the Quattroporte. They aren’t going to use the Alfa Giorgio platform to replace the Challenger/Charger/300, but it would make sense for Maserati to use it.

    2. Your statement about Lancia and Alfa intrigued me, so I went to go see what Lancia’s one model actually is. That…wasn’t what I was expecting.

    3. if FCA merges with PSA I can foresee a new dynamic for Maserati being elevated to be more of a Ferrari alternative like in the good old days…Ferrari wanted tot starve them of engines in the future anyway.
