    Alfa Romeo/Maserati 5 year product plan

    FCA held their latest 5 year strategy plan for investors at Alfa's test track and proving ground in Balocco on Friday. It was Sergio Marchionne's last such event as CEO of FCA as he retires next year but will carry on his role of heading up Ferrari.

    The new model plan looks to be good news for enthusiasts as it includes a new mid engined 8C and a high powered 2+2 coupe based upon the well received Giulia Quadrifolgio and revives the historic GTV name. Both models are set to adopt variations of FCA's new hybrid tech to offer improved performance. The power output of the 8C is quite an eye opener bearing in mind where Ferrari currently are with the 488 so indicates that they will be looking for a significant jump with it's successor. Porsche are looking increasingly out of step if they do not look to bring out the 960 in this sector of the market. It is clear that buyers at this level now regularly own 2 or more such models so there is potential for sales growth by new entrants if the product is right.

    Maserati will gain a new halo model in the shape of the Alfieri which has been a long time coming but was delayed to give it an EV powertrain. This may turn out to be a shrewd move for a niche model as it is far more likely to have much wider appeal to a younger audience.

    I am not worried about their plans, I am rather worried about their quality.

    Re: Alfa Romeo/Maserati 5 year product plan

    Indeed, very ambitious. However, they need to work on Brand recognition here in the US. Most don’t know what it is and if they do they beliive they are defunct.

    Nevertheless, it does pique my interest. kiss

    Re: Alfa Romeo/Maserati 5 year product plan

    Since we see way more Maserati on the road than Panameras, I don’t think they will have an issue in the USA.

    Deep discounting will do that.

    Just think, if FCA were able to meet their optimistic sales volume goals for Alfa Romeo and Maserati, Ferrari would become a mass market engine manufacturer.

    It doesn't cease to amaze me the amount of maseratis i see in Vegas on a daily bases. And you're right, they discount them like crazy here, I could've gotten a 1 year older Ghibli for what I paid for my 435. But, I did some work for the local Ferrari and Maserati dealership and one of the people there told me that the Ghibli has horrible reliability and they're always in and out of the shop.

    No doubt the panamera is the better car..but the maserati is like 10000000 times cooler and more exotic....

    +3. I find the Panamera, styling wise , a very boring car. On the opposite it drives really great. Had many chances to drive one in Finland , on track and on alpine roads. The Maserati is,  I agree cooler and with much better styling (imho) but the driving dynamics are not up to the level of the German competitors.

    The new Panamera has turned into a snooze fest. Too perfect. Too precise. It has got as much emotion as a mathematical formula.

    Turned into? The old one was boring too, I drove a S and a turbo and left unconvinced. For the price they ask, the value equation is simply not there.
