A new report indicates Maserati plans a supercar for 2015 based on the LaFerrari.

However, unlike the latest offering from the prancing horse, Maserati will ditch the hybrid tech and focus on either a V12 6.3-liter (from F12/LaFerrari) or a quad-turbo V8 3.8-liter (from Quattroporte). Regardless of what engine it will get, the Maserati supercar will certainly be slower than the LaFerrari, just like the MC12 was a tad slower and less powerful than the Enzo.

CAR says it will be available strictly as a coupe and should be lighter than the LaFerrari since it won't have the hybrid hardware. The same source believes the 2004 Maserati MC12 successor will be a two-seater with specially-developed carbon fiber body panels. Chassis, suspension and electrical systems are likely to be carried over from the LaFerrari.
