The Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio will go out of production in 2017, leaving the automaker with only its QuattroPorte and Ghibli sedans and recently introduced Levante SUV.
Once the GranTurismo and GranCabrio depart, it will be the first time Maserati has been without a sporty two-door since, well, pretty much ever. This isn’t entirely a bad thing, however, as the brand’s sedans and particularly the Levante have allowed it to sell nearly 50,000 cars so far this year.
Just because Maserati will be left without a sportscar doesn’t mean the trident badge automaker has abandoned the segment entirely. Replacements for the GranTurismo and GranCabrio, both of which are fairly old and outdated products, are expected to arrive in 2020.
Despite a series of delays, the Maserati Alfieri sportscar is also on its way, but there’s really no telling when. Maserati is looking at offering the car as an EV only, helping to differentiate it from the new GranTurismo and GranCabrio, both of which will also be two-door sportscars with a 2+2 seating layout.
