Maserati plans to expand its U.S. product line. The Italian brand's first four-seat convertible goes on sale in March, and a small sedan could follow a couple of years later.
Here are the highlights.
Small sedan: Maserati may add a sedan that is smaller than its four-door Quattroporte. The vehicle could be jointly developed with Fiat's Lancia brand. It likely would arrive in late 2012. Both Maserati and Lancia are owned by Fiat S.p.A.
GranTurismo: No major changes are planned through 2012.
GranCabrio: Maserati's first four-seat convertible debuted last month at the Frankfurt auto show. The car is basically a soft-top variant of the four-seat GranTurismo. U.S. sales begin in late March with an expected sticker price of $140,000. The GranCabrio will be powered by a 440-hp, 4.7-liter V-8.
Quattroporte: The big sedan was freshened this year; a redesign is planned for 2012.
