Maserati Reveals Initial GranCabrio Convertible Sports Car Since 2019

Maserati’s premier GranCabrio convertible since 2019 is anticipated to hit the U.S. market this summer, boasting a staggering top speed of nearly 200 miles per hour and an anticipated six-figure price tag that’s bound to make an impression.

Derived from the Maserati GranTurismo Trofeo sedan currently retailing from $190,000, this sports car shares the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, generating an impressive 542 horsepower and 460 foot-pounds of torque, as confirmed by the manufacturer.

Stellantis-owned Maserati has disclosed that the pricing for the convertible variant will be disclosed closer to its market availability—a customary practice as convertibles typically command higher prices than their hardtop counterparts.

The 2024 GranCabrio could prove instrumental in bolstering Maserati’s profits and sales for the year. Despite experiencing marginal upticks in revenue and sales in 2023, the Italian performance automaker saw its adjusted operating income dip by 30% from the previous year, amounting to 141 million euros, or $152.9 million.

In terms of aesthetics, the exterior of the vehicle, akin to its hardtop counterpart, exhibits a less aggressive demeanor, characterized by smoother design lines compared to its predecessor.

Inside the four-seater GranCabrio, which was unveiled online Thursday, one can expect sporty aesthetics, luxurious amenities, and an array of digital screens and gauges.

Additionally, the car comes equipped with an “innovative neck warmer” as a standard feature for the front driver and passenger seats, ideal for combating chilly temperatures. Functioning by emitting warm air directly from the seats at three different intensity levels, this feature adds to the vehicle’s allure.

As the latest iteration of the GranCabrio, which debuted as a nameplate in 2009, this model could potentially mark the swan song for gas-powered versions of the iconic drop-top. Maserati has outlined plans to transition exclusively to electric vehicles by 2028.

Nevertheless, with some automakers facing slower-than-anticipated EV sales, several have opted to delay or scale back their investments.
