Italian automaker, Maserati, is all set to make its debut in India coming April introducing a new generation of luxury cars to the country's evolving auto market.

Besides the venture into the Indian market, the company is also reported to be working on an in-house Quattroporte replacement code named M156.

The entry of the luxe brand into the Indian market could pose a challenge for the already established auto companies like Porsches and Audis.

The Indian daily Economic Times quoted Maserati spokeswomen Silvia Saporetti stating that the company sees a great potential for Maserati marquee as all major luxury brands are sold out in the Indian market.

Headquartered in Modena, Maserati is owned by Italian car giant Fiat S.p.A. within which it was initially associated with the Ferrari group. However, more recently, it has become part of the Alfa Romeo sports car group after splitting off from Ferrari in 2005.
