I believe this is from Road and Track:

2009: GT Sport with 35hp bump and CambioCorsa
2010: GT Convertible
2011? Smaller QP based on Alfa Romeo platform
2012: (Goal) 10K total annual production

And from another mag: the non-suits at the factory would really, really like to put a V-12 in the GT....

sounds possible. but is that year or model year?
it's unfortunate they have a gap for the convertible for 4 years...
may be that will help my spyder's resale. =P

well, there was that prototype of that large alfa romeo sedan.. so it is not impossible for them to make a smaller QP. but that would be dangerous - like jaguar with its s-type...

Jaguar lost it's uniqueness by building Mondeos with the jaguar on the hood!
Ferrari became an everyday toy, by giving authority to produce Barbies, hats, T-shirts like shit, mobile phones, shoes, and a bounch of thousands other useless crap.
If Maserati wants to burst sales, better make descent, RELIABLE, fast, agile, refined, and most of all good looking cars, than immitating Alfas, Betas or other low cost platforms.
I bought my 4200 because is a rare image on the streets more rare than a 430 here in Greece.
If Maserati become Barbie in blue it will be a huge X for me!
Period!!!!:mad:

2009 for the beefed-up GT... if true, comes at a good time for the replacement of my GS :D

I heard a substantiation of the 35hp bump on the GT yesterday from a Maserati sales guy. He said in about a year, so the 2009 as R&T and Bcube state.

I was under the impression the 10k/year production was already hit with the QP.
Andrew,

According to October issue of EVO:

2006 Total Production: 5700 Coupes.Spyders,QPs
2007 Total Production: 7000+
2011 Goal: 12,000

It is obvious that the Automatic for the QP was/is the correct decision - 2007 is the year that Maserati isn't bleeding red since the Fiat ownership of 1993.
