2012 Maserati Quattroporte S and Sport GT S (4.7 l, M139, MY13) received a Power Increase package along with the new GranTurismo Sport. Thanks to optimising the engine mapping, increasing the valve overlap above 5,500 rpm thanks to VVT system and optimal use of timing advance. All this resulted in increased performance in SPORT mode above 5,500 rpm (+10 PS and +20 Nm). New F136 YR and YT engine codes were assigned to this update. Production of M139 also ceased in 2012.
When Maserati Quattroporte IV was being turned into Quattroporte Evoluzione it took 400 all-new or modified parts out of a total 800 main components (even though press-pack states that 70% of the components were redesigned). But when Quattroporte V DuoSelect stepped down for Quattroporte Automatica; 4,800 new components were introcduced out of 16,500 that makes the Quattroporte.

Some sources show that Quattroporte IV Evoluzione was available with 2.0 V6 engine, when in fact Ferrari management dropped it for couple reasons. Firstly to upscale the whole marque and secondly to distance it’s reputation from the 2.0 Biturbos. And after this change and the introduction of 3200 GT, whole Maserati lineup was made up of 2.8 and 3.2 capacity engines.
Old production numbers:
Quattroporte Evoluzione 2.0 V6 200
Quattroporte Evoluzione 2.8 V6 190
New production numbers:
Quattroporte Evoluzione 2.8 V6 390
Reason: the other remaining model is a V8 Evoluzione and it’s production numbers are not changed, so all the available numbers should be counted as (2.8) V6 Evoluzione.
From Maserati Classiche:
“The Quattroporte Evoluzione model was manufactured only with the engines V6 of 2.790cc and V8 of 3.217cc.”

On National Geographic’s ‘Magafactories: Ferrari 599 GTB’ there are some Maseratis being painted at Marabello. And as the Maserati factory was being modernized at that time it seamed that Coupé, Spyder and Quattroporte V may have been asembled at Ferrari’s plat in Maranello. Maserati Classiche explained that at that time only paintjob was supplied by Ferrari and those models were assembled at Maserati, Modena.
