A Maserati executive told Reuters the Italian brand plans on limiting production output to 75,000 units.

It seems Fiat wants to keep Ferrari and Maserati exclusive as production of cars at Maranello is already limited to 7,000 units and now Maserati has announced they will not produce more than 75,000 units. However, there's still a long way to go as they estimate production rate will hit this mark in 2018.

Rejuvenated Maserati sold only 15,400 units in 2013 but this year they are on track to deliver more than double while in 2015 they expect to sell 50,000 cars. A large portion of these sales gains are the result of introducing the entry-level Ghibli sedan and will be boosted further by next year's Levante crossover while in 2016 they plan on offering a production variant of the Alfieri concept, followed a year later by a convertible derivative. Lastly, an all-new GranTurismo is set for a 2018 market release and will be positioned above the Alfieri with a rear-wheel drive layout and a V8 engine generating more than 560 PS (412 kW).

Hopefully, Fiat is working on a plan to bring back dying Lancia.
