  • Forget the name Alfieri: Maserati says its next and only grand touring coupe will be the replacement for the GranTurismo.
  • The voluptuous Alfieri concept car could still provide design direction for the revived GranTurismo.
  • An electrified powertrain is officially in the works, but it's unclear if the new car will be offered exclusively as an EV.

Maserati's stunning Alfieri concept car is no longer in the brand's product plan—at least, not with that name attached. But the good news is that the Italian automaker says there will be a new generation of the GranTurismo coming soon to replace the current model that was discontinued after the 2019 model year.

What's more, a Maserati spokesperson confirmed to C/D that the GranCabrio name will also be revived for a convertible version of the new GranTurismo. The hardtop coupe model should begin production as soon as 2022 with the softtop following a year later. The GranTurismo will slot into the Maserati lineup alongside a new mid-engined supercar called MC20.

The GranTurismo and GranCabrio are expected to usher in a new wave of electrification to the storied 105-year-old marque. Maserati told C/D that the new car will be the first Maserati to adopt an electric powertrain and that it will be produced in Turin, Italy. It's unclear at this point if the GranTurismo and GranCabrio will be offered exclusively as EVs or if a gasoline-only or some sort of plug-in hybrid powertrain might also be offered.

No matter which way Maserati decides to go with the powertrain, we're hoping that the gorgeous Alfieri concept car will still provide design inspiration for the new models. We're also hopeful that Maserati will stick to the launch timing as planned, but recent events surrounding the global coronavirus pandemic may cause delays.
