Its a guessing game!

Like they said "its a guessing game..."

Thats a hands down Ferrari, when you follow the shape, size, curves, etc. Its a hands down Ferrari. Their just trying to mix things up. How did Alfta Romeo get in their???

Ferrari all the way and I can put money where my mouth is!!!!

I'd dispute the characterization of the Spyder and Coupe as "poorly executred" harrumph.

Back when the rumor was that what became the GranTurismo was going to be a 2 seat hardtop Spyder, C&D or R&T claimed it was going to be called the Ghibli.

how about the horse on the rear and the ferrari grill. nope that is a ferrari.
I wouldn't assume that though... car companies will go to some lengths to disguise their test mules.

What catches my eye is the fact that it looks so much like the Ferrari 599. Ferrari don't typically run around in near-production trim while being tested. Could that be the play? Cloak a Maserati test mule in Ferrari sheet metal to keep everybody off guard? OK, I admit, wishful thinking, but.....

Edmunds is full of shit and just trying to fish for a story to get attention. That car's design screams Ferrari and has nothing in common with a current Maserati designs.

On another note I would love to be wrong and Edmunds right. This would be an awesome car for the Maserati lineup.

I read a quote from Ferrari that they will never put out a Dino or any "cheaper" Ferrari. Cloaking this smaller car in Ferarri badges would be a good way to through the public off until the Maser two seater was ready for an announcement.

There were those rumors about a smaller, lighter, faster Mas.

After my two post the rumor starting going to my head and I thought the same thing. In one of the photos the horse is right on the back which is BS, mules never have badging so I am guessing that was a nice photoshop adjustment.

Only time will tell on this one and I don't have lots of patience.

looks like the same mule, don't you think?

i admire people with such photoshop skills.
Are you serious? Those two cars look nothing alike. The car first posted is obviously clothed in 599gtb-like body work and the car you posted is a photoshopped Porsche Cayman made to look like what they think a modern day Dino would resemble.
I'm not sure if it's a Maserati, Dino or Alfa but my bet says it's the new Dino. What does Maserati have to gain by dressing the next Spyder in a Ferrari suit for testing? It's pretty much a forgone conclusion that in order for them to be competitive they will have to offer a convertible. The Ferrari and Maserati divorce got kinda ugly so I doubt they would allow Maserati to use Ferrari in such a way.

hey you get porsche panamera dressing up as M5 or a 928 or something..., so seriously, why not a maserati dressed up as a ferrari?

don't think this is the spyder they are testing...

perhaps this next maserati is based loosely on the 599 chassis and layout? that would be really nice. :)

What do they have to gain? How about people putting off purchasing a GranTurismo to wait for a new Spyder? Yes everyone knows that they will eventually build another Spyder, the questions is WHEN?

If people think it will be release within a year, they will wait. If it will be released in 2 to 3 years, then you'll have customers doing a 36 month lease on a GranTurismo now and replace it with the new Spyder when the lease expires.
