Maserati has confirmed it is working on a new entry-level model that will be priced from around £50,000.
The car, revealed as part of Fiat's restructuring plans today, will "offer a new product package with specific contents in order to exploit Maserati DNA". The only other detail confirmed was that it would be priced at less than 55,000 euros (£47,815). No official details have been confirmed.
Maserati wants the car to give it a 10 per cent share in what it calls Europe's 'high-end E-segment'.
Also confirmed at the Maserati presentation was an all-new Quattroporte. The firm wants the car to give it a larger share in the luxury sports saloon market and it is described as having a "completely new style, offering outstanding driving emotions and high-level quality".
The firm revealed no long-term plans to replace either the Granturismo or the Grancabrio because both are still relatively new models.
