Maserati has recently revealed some new details about the upcoming Gran Sport as well as the next-generation GranTurismo and GranCabrio.
Speaking to Motor Trend, the CEO Harald Wester confirmed that there was a need for a smaller sports car as of now and so he even suggested that the Gran Sport will fulfill this role and next-generation GranCabrio will be based on the Gran Sport instead of the GranTurismo. The GranTurismo will move upmarket and become a larger luxury coupe.
However as per the sources, the styling hasn’t been finalized yet, but the Gran Sport will be sportier and lighter than any other car in Maserati’s current lineup. All three models are expected to ride on a condensed version of the same platform that underpins the Ghibli and Quattroporte.
Engine options remain unconfirmed but we can expect a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that can generate 410 HP (301 kW) and 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) of torque. The engine will be mated to a dual-clutch transmission, instead of an eight-speed automatic.
