What? Do you know how much money an engine assembly line cost? Now we have two? Ferrari makes the engines Maserati and some 4.2 cars have blue cam covers...Maserati doesn't currently manufacture engines....Jason

Another reason for the change ...

Maserati's last 5 year plan documents (2018) had them move to plugin hybrids and battery hybrids quite quickly - by 2022. So the need for a Ferrari assembled engine is no longer a requirement. They will be buying kit from somewhere else, maybe Rimac, who knows outside of the factory.

The Ferrari agreement is presumably not part of the strategy.

I'm pretty sure Alfa too will stop getting their QV engines from Ferrari, for the same reasons - warranty, price, reliability.

Yeah it’s a very good engine. I was meaning that since it’s ferrari derived it probably won’t be supplied to Maserati or Alfa after the Maserati/Ferrari contract isn’t renewed. But who knows ......

Maybe they’ll make just one exception and the Alfieri will be released with this engine :

SECRET: all untrue rumors. A proof? Here is the experimental vehicle of the future Ferrari full electric drive for the Alfieri. I have one, I am part of the test trial, it runs great.

So weird! Someone pulled up to me in a white van and tried to sell me a box of those last week, along with a set of speakers and an astonishingly lightweight projector TV.

I realize many current 6 cyl TT engines can be extraordinarily good, and super-powerful vs. our NA V8, but I simply can't come to terms with anything less than an 8 in a Maserati GT, nor in a Ferrari for that matter.
Nothing tangible to base that on, other than my personal bias..an entirely subjective thing.

Ironically, I did own a 6 cyl Maserati ( Merak ) long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away , but in the last couple of years after driving some 6 cyl TT cars than can annihilate our GTs, I would still not trade our V8 for any of those engines. The 6 cyl engines just FEEL weird to me ..the way they revv is not my cup of tea, and also they lack something I can't express other than calling it "soul ". Frankly I even prefer a large capacity 4 cyl (3 L ) to a six because of how the engine feels and revvs.

Furthermore, the turbo muffles the exhaust sound of what is already a pathetic note most six cyl engines produce. And sure, Porsche and a few other top brands have been able to attain very impressive exhaust notes in their six-banger cars but that's just been a fairly recent development. No doubt Maserati will match or exceed that note with any 6 cyl car they might release, but still.. the Ferrari V8 is epic. IMO.
