That grey rendering looks great! The grille and headlights are a good variant of the Quattroporte ones, and with a suitably long bonnet. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The orange rendering looks a bit stodgy though, like a two-door sedan. Could look a bit more sporty.<p>As it is, the spy shots seem to show a car with a very sloping character line on the side, and a much wedgier profile than the current one or the renderings - this thing should be less GT and more sports car, like the DB9 or some such.<p>Er come to think of it, the contours of the side remind me of the Porsche 928..

The current Maserati coupe and spyder beg the question, is the Ferrari's 80 grand premium worth it? It's good to see that these will do it again. If you ask me the don't look quite as amazing as the current ones though.

The caption says "auf bases de 166."<p>Although I don't speak German, I think it means the Alfa 166 is the base for this car. Still, that strikes me as somewhat unlikely given what we've heard, so I expect a real Maserati in this style to share its new platform with the Alfa Brera

I honestly didn't think it was possible, but if that chop or whatever it is is acurate, then they have actually made the coupe/spyder even more gorgeous. This is why Maserati is so awesome. I didn't think they would be using Ferrari engines this time though, seeing as Ferrari has made it clear that they're tired of Maserati's mooching.

This is by no means the GT. Obviously its a Quattroporte facelift. <p>Edit: Just followed the link provided. I was not that wrong. This should be worth its own thread, don't you agree? I don't like the roofline though. Maybe this isl about to change. Right now it just looks like a 2 door quattroporte.

Are we referring to the CC one? I think that version is already testing and will have a much shorter wheelbase than these new mules we've been seeing.<p>The new GT coupe and spyder are much larger than the CC in length since there is some kind of a back seat there, even though it's too small for your average person.

It should not be called Quattroporte Coupe, i think i said it before because it's 4-doors in italian. It's better this should be as GT Coupe but i really hope it's hard top CC as well.

I reckon it's a test mule for the GT Coupe, but it's based on a shortened Quattroporte test car, much like the early Jag XK prototypes were shortened XJ Saloons. This looks very similar. There's no rear door, even though there's a handle. Afterall, there are no shut-lines around the rear windows.

I have to agree with the last poster. Maserati has always been very extensive with disguises IMO - lots of cladding.

Totally. I think Maserati is wise to not go down the "ultimate sports car" route that is so trodden today. To be marketable, they need only offer killer power and handling (becoming a commodity!) and do so with italian style and exclusivity. <p>With Aston, Porsche and a bunch of other better financed rivals jumping in, they need to focus on being a great drivers care for older, more sophisticated buyers who crave the italian style. Something tells me they'll do that here.

Damn dude, that's a beautiful car. They have such rich heritage to work from, in both styling and marketing. I think Maserati could be the next Aston or better if they could just keep their costs down -- The hidden aesthetic jewel in the high-end GT pricepoint? There isn't much for us yanks to choose from in the Italian brand of style. I can't wait for this and the forthcoming Alphas. We could use some of what they have to offer...

I don't know if they're sharing a platform yet but Alpha and Maserati better start, quick. They're both struggling and it's too expensive to keep developing these low volume models on their own. Ferrari can do it because it's a cost-no-object brand. Maserati and especially Alpha do not share that luxury. <p>Alpha hasn't had a good rear-drive platform in decades, and even at $100k+ it's getting tough for Maserati to make money. If they engineered everything for US use, shared platforms and got a little dealer base going, they'd both be players again.

I recently saw a Chrysler TC by Maserati on the road, also. It such a departure from the product line now, and from what's soon to be in store. It was the humble K-car chassis, with a choice of I4's (turbo application on one, I believe), but with a classier Italian body compared to the Standard Chrysler fare (which come light-years ahead since then) at the time; it was the 80s after all.<p>I'm now all the more anxious to see these new Coupe/Spyder offerings! It's awesome and outrageous, what more can I say, this will soon be a superior line-up, more than ever. Today's Quattroporte easily outclasses the last (large) model, used in the Rocky movies when the Stallone character was on top of the heap, and I thought it was something special then, which it was! <p>When are the Coupe/Spyder vehicles set to be unveiled?

Nearly ten years from the debut of the Maserati "3200 GT", whose name then has simply become "Coup", arrive the heir. Ve of it we anticipate the probable aspect (image here to side), but only 20 tuesdays February we will be able to reveal of the definitive shapes. For hour, we can say that it changes the paternity of the style: not more Giugiaro but Pininfarina. The new coup of the Tridente will be the much most aggressive one and spinning of the previous one, like famous also from the first sketches that we show you (second and third image). By rough estimate, the dimensions also grow, also because it has been realized on a different pianale. An other mystery that will be cleared next tuesday regards the name. The only sure thing is that the new granturismo will not call more "Coup" and that names like "Sebring" or "Ghibli" will not be rispolverati; a lot probably, however, will remain a some callback to the tradition. Which is second you it denomination who will choose the men of the Tridente? It indicates it to you cliccando on the link here under: we are curious of knowing how many of you indovineranno.

Anyone care to translate the Italian? I'm frequently wrong about Ferrari's moves (The FXX being "not a new model" but "only a development mule" being somewhat embarrassing!) but this doesn't seem like the sillohuette of a new entry Ferrari. Yeah, not much to see but it seems a little too tall and sedan-like to be the oft-speculated "Dino." Besides, they've got enough problems making 430's and 599's -- Three year waiting lists are developing into a serious marketing problem.

Agree that the back car in pic is a new Maserati coupe mule, the other, after looking at a blow up, is in my opinion a (new) <U>Alfa 8C </U>mule......Exhaust, top of tail bowed curve and big tail lights (and placement) match the Geneva Auto Show car...... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/driver.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/banana.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>BTW the Geneva Alfa 8C in black w/red interior is <B>gorgeous</B><U></U>. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/eek3.gif" BORDER="0"> .......................... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0">

Those are old GT mule shots. <p>Would Ferrari make an "entry" car with the 2.5/3 year waiting lists? Their workers are on semi-strike over falling quality standards because of the growth in production. I don't think this is legit unless they're trying some sort of bold growth strategy. But that's fraught with risk for an exclusive brand. Unless they're preparing to diversify their line up to withstand an economic downturn (which almost killed Porsche in the early 90's). <p>This thread should all be in "rumors" I think!

An entry level Ferrari would be better as a Maserati.

Maybe. Maserati's marketing is trying to convince buyers that it's not as expensive as they think. People thnk they're pricier and more upscale than they are apparently.<p>Personally, I'd still love to see Ferrari produce something like the old 166 Barchetta. A stripped down runabout that could be driven to, around and home from the track. Say, $100,000 even and in annual batches of 3000 with an owner Challenge series for weekend racers. It wouldn't detract from the exclusivity because it would be too barebones and hardcore for anyone but a true enthusiast to enjoy.<p>Then I could buy one second hand a few years later. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">
