Maserati GranCorsa Sportscar Concept Unveiled

It's a rare occasion indeed when Maserati launches two brand-new vehicles within the span of just a few months. But the company has done just that, with the unveiling of the full-size Quattroporte shown at the Detroit Auto Show in January, as well as the Ghibli sedan, which will be unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month.

Maserati's impressive production line doesn't stop there, however, with the possibility of a new sportscar coming in the near future. Called the Maserati GranCorsa, the concept of such a vehicle was proposed by industrial design student AJ Merk of Cleveland, Ohio. According to Merk, the design is for a mid-engined coupe, though the renderings give it the image of more of a front-engine, rear-wheel drive vehicle. Merk says that the Maserati concept vehicle would have a number of unique components distinguishing it from all other supercars out there, as well as from every other Maserati.

Maserati has openly shared its plans to significantly boost its line-up in the next few years. Based on previous reports, a new halo supercar based on the LaFerrari is planned to be launched sometime in the next two years. Maserati is also planning to debut the Levante crossover, the production version of the 2011 Kubang Concept.

Whether or not Maserati will be able to get away with additional presentations will depend significantly on the performance of the Kubang and Ghibli. If those two vehicles are well-received, then we could very well see something like the GranCorsa hitting the streets.
