Maserati Says There Won’t be a LaFerrari-Based Supercar
Shortly after Ferrari unveiled the LaFerrari supercar, it was rumored that Maserati would unveil a supercar based on the LaFerrari. The model was supposed to be a successor for the 2004 MC12 supercar and we assumed it would arrive in 2015.
An announcement by company Maserati Harald J Wester in a recent interview with AutoExpress confirmed that the company isn’t planning to build a hypercar based on the Ferrari LaFerrari.
Instead, Maserati will focus on developing the new-generation GranCabrio and GranTurismo. After these two are finished, there will also be a new smaller sports car. However, contrary to previous rumors, the new sports car won’t be based on the Alfa Romeo 4C because this will require "to create a more sporty, all-new body for Maserati."
