Maserati may consider producing another low-volume model, according to boss Harald Wester.
Speaking to Autocar, Wester confirmed that the company “could do a limited edition, but not yet”.
Maserati’s most recent limited edition was the 2004 MC12, a rebodied version of the Ferrari Enzo that sold out despite being priced far higher than the firm’s regular models. It was also developed as a racing car.
Maserati’s Modena plant currently makes the carbonfibre-bodied 4C for Alfa Romeo. Prior to that, it built the limited-edition Alfa 8C Competizione, which was heavily reliant on Maserati hardware. Wester pointed out that Maserati has only 1100 staff, making it agile and flexible enough to take on such a project.
Following the Levante’s introduction, Maserati has minor updates for the Ghibli and Quattroporte planned for later this year. Beyond that, a successor to the GranTurismo series, which was launched in 2007 and currently sells at around 40% of its manufacturing capacity, is on the horizon. “The GranTurismo will go when it is 10 years old,” Wester said.
