The nameplate could potentially be used for another (as yet unknown) model such as a hatchback or shooting brake, but the most likely recipient of the Cinqueporte badge is the Kubang.
The eventual production version of the Cinqueporte/Kubang will be powered by a range of "high tech proprietary engines" designed by Maserati and built by Ferrari, and it would not be unreasonable to expect a V8 among them.
An eight-speed automatic transmission will also be developed exclusively for the Kubang, Maserati says
A production date has yet to be finalised, however Maserati's new SUV is expected to hit showrooms sometime after 2013.
