Maserati is likely to halt production of the Ghibli and Quattroporte at its plant near Turin, Italy, for a week due to slow sales. Fortunately, there's a plan in place to fix the brand's faltering fortunes.
Last year when Maserati revealed a plan to sell 50,000 units globally by 2015, it seemed like a pretty steep goal for an automaker that had sold just 6,300 units for the entire year. It turns out that goal may be a little on the conservative side. Through September, Automotive News Europe says the Italian automaker has already racked up 22,500 orders mainly on the backs of the redesigned Quattroporte and the all-new Ghibli, and there are still more new products in the pipeline.
