The first step in Maserati's next-decade plan will roll out in May, offering a sports car to offset the loss of the now-defunct GranTurismo and GranCabrio.

Maserati has announced its upcoming sports car will be revealed in May 2020.

Details about the 'sports car' are hard to come by at the moment, but a teaser video posted on Twitter offers a few hints beyond the launch date.

For one, it features a revving petrol engine, suggesting the first electrified Maserati won't be a pure-electric vehicle – instead, it's likely to be a plug-in hybrid, or offer a purely internal-combustion powertrain option option.

Reports from earlier this year claimed the sports car – which may be called Alfieri – will be built on a modular aluminium space-frame chassis designed to support fully- and partially-electrified powertrains.

The most powerful model is expected to be a three-motor, all-wheel drive electric model capable of hitting 100km/h in around two seconds.

The sports car will be joined by a convertible version in 2021, according to Maserati's latest earnings report. Also on the cards are refreshed Levante, Ghibli, and Quattroporte models in 2020.

An all-new GranTurismo is also expected to follow in 2021, with a new GranCabrio and Quattroporte to come in 2022.
