2017 Maserati Quattroporte  Release Date, News and Rumors

Although the new 2017 Maserati Quattroporte in its segment for its Italian flair, it still trails behind its rivals in terms of technology offered. On the upside, though, some of the highlights for the newest Quattroporte model include user-friendly controls, distinctive styling, spacious cabin and engaging handling. The Maserati Quattroporte release date should be expected sometime in the latter half of 2017.

German marques have long dominated the flagship luxury sedan market for quite some time now. While these stalwart competitors undoubtedly deserve the kind of praise they’re constantly heaped with, exuberant alternatives are much better when it comes to precision. Unlike the robotic ride quality you get from the German vehicles, the Quattroporte livens up the stately segment with an Italian flair.

It comes with inspiring Ferrari-sourced engines that offer a sizzling performance ranging from the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 generating 404 hp and 406 lbs. ft. of torque to the 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 good for 523 horsepower and 524 pounds-ft. of torque. The overall ride quality is impressive as long as you avoid the larger wheel options.

The styling is shapely, comfort is unrivaled and bespoke, and the cabin is pleasantly isolated from the outside world thanks to clever engineering and upscale designs. The seats are specially designed and offer lots of comfort and support.

Sadly, there are various faults that reduce the Quattroporte’s overall design. It lacks advanced safety features, it is more expensive than most of its rivals, the interior lacks the kind of refinement one would expect from such a vehicle, and the infotainment system doesn’t seem to respond as well as mainstream vehicles.

There is no doubt that the Maserati Quattroporte 2017 offers an emotional alternative to the status quo, however, German marques head this class courtesy of the exemplary performance their models offer, albeit cost more. They include the Jaguar XJ, BMW 7 Series, the Porsche Panamera, and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

New 2017 Maserati Alfieri Release Date and Info

Although the 2017 Maserati Alfieri is still a concept, test mules have been spotted undergoing some testing in Europe. According to images and teaser photos Maserati has been flaunting of the new-look, the new model’s design seems to be in tandem with that of the concept that debuted a couple of years ago. Read on our rendering to see what you should expect of the new 2017 Maserati Alfieri including its price, release date, and concept redesigns.

Even at a distant and with all that camouflage on its skin, the new Alfieri’s design reestablishes Maserati’s orientation towards racing heritage and unique tradition in exotic GT cars. It is sleek, full of Italian style just like the 1969 Indy, 1959 5000 GT, and the 1957 3500 GT before it, and clearly demonstrates what Maserati is all about.

“Maserati is always Maserati, nothing changes,” said Ramaciotti. Indeed, the dimensions are certainly a hint at the brand’s stylistic intentions for the new future, and might well be archetypal for a future Gran Sport. It is also sportier than the GranTurismo. Well, just like every brand’s strong desire to convert a concept into a reality 100%, Maserati seems to have nailed it. This is however speculative at the moment, as we’re yet to confirm the exact designs of the heavily guised prototype.

According to Maserati, the source of inspiration to build the Alfieri came from the Maserati A6 GCS-53 that was designed in 1954 by PininFarina. The car was a masterpiece of design then, and was the last one to be designed by PininFarina before emerging once again in the twenty-first century with the GranTurismo and the Quattroporte. The breathtaking design features and proportions of the A6 GCS-53 made it an iconic piece of automotive technology: long, sinuous wings extended all the way to the aft wheels, an outwardly endless bonnet, and a diminutive cabin positioned almost at the rear.

With that in mind, Maserati aims to once again rewrite history with the new Maserati Alfieri 2017, just like it did with the A6 GCS-53 model back in the ‘50s. The Alfieri, according to recent news will be forceful but understated, aggressive yet subtle in style.

See, once available, the new model will take aim at the 2017 Porsche 911 and the 2017 Jaguar F-Type. It’ll use the same platform as the Maserati Ghibli and the Quattroporte, but with a slight revolution in the exterior and interior design language.

Maserati is yet to make the release date and price of the new model known, which isn’t surprising as it’s quite early for official announcements. It was highly expected that the new 2017 Maserati Alfieri would be showcased during the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, but even without putting a show at the 86th International Motor Show in Geneva, rumors are rife that Maserati is working on final touches before making a debut. Pricing should be expected to start from around $100,000 while the release date might take place sometime in mid-2017.

2017 Maserati Alfieri Exterior

This is what we think of the exterior design according to the concept. In stark contrast to other contemporary Maserati models, it comes with a long, low nose. The grille seems to float on the air courtesy of the two concave sections that divide it vertically. The characteristic brow render the aggressive headlights that come with bi-xenon LED bulbs. The characteristic brow is also present on the twin tailpipes.

Around back, there are white elements in the center of the red external elements of the three-dimensional taillights. The shape of the taillights follows the rear shoulder harmoniously and creates an impressive, racing style complemented by the air ducts beneath.

In overall, buyers can expect an eye-catching silhouette that can almost entice you to caress it in passion given the way Alfieri’s designers developed finely-integrated, uncluttered form of the restyled air ducts on the wheel arches that form a decorative masterpiece.
