Maserati is planning to sell approximately 13, 000 units of the new Quattroporte generation in 2013 and by 2015 the carmaker wants its total sales to reach 50, 000 units annually.

The new generation of the Maserati Quattroporte is expected to become a hit and the Italian based automaker Fiat, the owner of Maserati brand, is planning to sell approximately 13,000 units of the model next year. The company has big plans for the Maserati brand and by 2015, the Fiat Group is looking to reach 50,000 Maserati vehicles sold annually. This is a huge sales target considering the fact that Maserati has only sold 6,159 units last year and 4,700 units in the first three quarter of this year.

As a quick reminder, the new generation of the Maserati Quattroporte will get a 3.0 liter V6 petrol engine under its hood, producing 410 HP, which will allow the model to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in approximately 5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 285 km/h. The top of the line version will use a 3.8 liter V8 with double supercharging and direct injection, generating 530 HP and 670 Nm of torque. Thanks to overboost, the torque figure can go up to 720 Nm. 4.7 seconds will be needed in order for this version to reach 100 km/h from a standstill and 307 km/h will be the top speed.
