The automotive industry is rather unpredictable. One month it can experience record-breaking sales, only to reach a new low a month later. There are many factors that affect that, but it’s something that carmakers simply have to learn to accept if they want to remain in the industry.
Maserati may have been around for a while, but that doesn’t mean that the brand is immune to delays and problems.
The Maserati Alfieri sports car was originally scheduled to launch in 2016, but with no recent news or updates about the vehicle, fans became sceptical about the release date.
Today the brand has confirmed that it had to delay the launch date of the sports car until the beginning of the next decade.
According to multiple sources, the brand will first focus on bringing out the next Granturismo and the Grancabri before shifting its focus back to the Alfieri.
It’s understood that the brand chose to take this route, due to the fact that the Granturismo and Grancabri are more important to Maserati when taking into consideration the bigger picture.
Don’t lose hope just yet however, as it appears that the brand is still very serious about bringing the production version of the Alfieri out in the near future.
Whether it takes the brand four or five years, it’s great that the Alfieri will eventually get a release date.
The brand’s current line-up is quite impressive; however, it’s Maserati’s decision at the end of the day, so if it chooses to focus on other models at the moment there’s nothing any of us can do about it.
Considering how many sports cars are currently available out there, now is likely the perfect time to sell your old car and get the vehicle you’ve always wanted.
