The next couple of years will be very busy for Maserati which is planning a new model onslaught that will see five brand new models released between now and 2015, the automaker’s CEO has confirmed.
Maserati CEO Harald Wester said the recently revealed 2014 Quattroporte is just the first of five new models due over the next three years. The others will be the Ghibli mid-size sedan due next year, the Levante SUV based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee in mid-2014, and then the replacement for the GranTurismo and a new smaller sports car in 2015 to take on the likes of the Jaguar F-Type and Porsche 911.
Maserati styling boss Lorenzo Ramaciotti revealed that the replacement for the GranTurismo (and GranTurismo Convertible) would be smaller than the current car, explaining that its dimensions would be more akin to the Jaguar XK rather than the portly model on sale today.
Maserati CEO Harald Wester reaffirmed Maserati’s plans to boost sales to around 50,000 annually by as early as 2015 – close to a 10-fold increase on its current sales level.
