Maserati Alfieri Coupe Delayed Till 2018



Maserati has announced that it is delaying the launch of its Alfieri Coupe until sometime in 2018. Previously, the Alfieri Coupe had been slated for production in 2016 with the Alfieri Cabrio following a year later.

The brand seems to have decided on the delay in order to give greater focus to the Maserati Levante crossover launch later this year, and the reboot of sibling brand Alfa Romeo.

I think they may be trying to cut back on spending because of their poor sales numbers this year. Let's hope the Alfieri doesn't go the way of the NSX and get delayed for years.

As long as it means a better growing company then its all worth it, which helps to benefit us guys just looking for a fun coupe since what they profit could get allocated to building better coupes, core products like the Levante helps them do that

Heard the NSX was delayed for so long they had to completely redesign it to make it relevant.

Apparently it wasn't as bad as Lexus with the LFA supercar, which took them nearly 10 years to bring to market or probably more than that.

Well FCA did just lose money last quarter so it appears things aren't all well and good.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles swings to loss under weight of recall costs in North America

Wasn't that a one time recall charge? Maybe FCA will make a comeback in the last quarter. Or as least I hope they do.

One thing we can bet on from setbacks like that is volume products will get priority, micro-niche products could get pushed back... don't be surprised to hear about that in the coming months.

So, I am thinking that they will focus on Jeep, and the Maserati Levante... Any other priorities that you think can be pointed to as far as focuses on volume products?

That's all I can think of at the moment unless they have plans for another SUV, the sedan department seems to be covered well by the Quatroporte and Ghibli, don't see any more room for growth there and no hint of future development.
