In case anybody missed it, check out this link for Road & Track's guess as to the next Maserati model.

http://www.roadandtrack.com/article.asp?section_id=2&article_id=6752

In short, R&T predicts a "more dynamic Maser" and "a sporty coupe (or spyder) for younger customers" to be on the road in 2011 or 2012. Probably just about the time I am ready to trade in and up from 2005 Coupe GT. :D

I think it is common knowledge there will soon be a baby Maser.

Not sure whether R&T is essentially talking about the same thing.

Maserati trying to save money by not hiring Pinin Farina for a new design???
That isn't a NEW Maserati, that's pretty much GranTurismo junior. Looks EXACTLY the same with a few subtle line change. I would MUCH rather see this baby in the showroom.
are you replying to the wrong post?

??? Maserati did not commission anyone for a new design in this.

the a8gcs is touring superleggerra's creation for themselves, not for maserati.

it is actually based on the GS (to my surprised too, as it looks like a GT).

Apologies for not being more specific... what I meant was that the supposed new 2012 Maserati model (in the website link) looks just like the GT, rather than a "new model". From a new model, I would hope and expect for a very different design which would inspire a GT owner like myself to go out and buy this new model. The A8GCS actually looks pretty different from the GT (which it is supposedly modeled after), so my comment was meant to say that I would rather see something LIKE the A8GCS in the showroom rather than the new 2012 model. From the brief article on the A8GCS, it doesn't seem like it will be easy to get my hands on this car... and that's if they actually decide to sell a few limited edition models.

'Korea, I think the photoshop in the article can be completely disregarded in terms of figuring out the GT's replacement.

The real question is whether before the replacement, Maserati will do a facelift on the GT (and QP) or not, but I don't think that's been Maserati's style so don't see them starting to do so now.
