Default Maserati's 2-Door Concept

LeftLane News is at it again. This time its a prediction of what the newest member of the Maserati family will look like. Quite stunning in my opinion.

Important details extracted from the article. For the full article refer to:
Illustrated: Maserati considering smaller two-seater
  • "the Italian automaker is considering adding another model to its current lineup, a new report finds. The model under consideration would be an “entry-level” Maserati, with a sales target of 6,000 units per year."
  • "The baby Maserati would be built on a shortened GranTurismo platform, and would be offered exclusively as a two-seater
  • Underhood, the new model would be powered by 4.2L and 4.7L V8s, with a more economical V6 still a possibility. "
  • "The new car would cost €80-100,000 "

Excellent! Looks great.
I think that it will be surely a success. IMO, this car must be based on Ferrari Dino, i.e. Baby Ferrari.

As it is clearly mentioned, the above picture is an illustration of what it might look like. All recent Maserati designs have been gorgeous, this one should follow the trend.

Oh my bad. I did not read the first post clearly enough, it seems.

Default More pictures

I think I might be in love with this car. Here are a few more pictures courtesy LeftLaneNews.com. Check out the convertible. I really hope they put this car into production. Maserati should make it look exactly like this illustrations.

Maserati has always made great looking cars, and this is no exception.
