Maserati Is Ending V-8 Engine ProductionMaserati

Maserati confirmed Thursday it will cease production of its twin-turbo V-8 by 2024, ending the company's 64-year love affair with the eight-cylinder powertrain as it pivots to full electric propulsion.

The Maserati V-8's passing will be celebrated by two special-edition cars, the Ghibli 334 Ultima and the Levante V8 Ultima. The company has yet to unveil any specs or performance figures on the two vehicles, with a full reveal planned at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.

The Italian sports car maker has been making V-8s since 1959, when its first V-8-powered car, the 5000GT, entered production. Currently, the company sells three vehicles available with V-8 engines: the Quattroporte, the Levante, and the Ghibli. But those cars are set to end production by late 2023.

While Maserati says it'll be fully electric by 2030, it still sells a handful of ICE-powered cars, including the Grecale crossover, the new V-6-powered Granturismo, and the mid-engine MC20. So if you'd like to own a Maserati before they're all EVs, head to the dealer sooner rather than later.
