Yes. I think that was the Paris car show I was at in 2014

Funny how it looks smaller on the grass and larger in doors. Same car?
I am pretty sure it is the same car. They have not made more than one as far as I know.

Interesting that you say it looks small outdoors. I have not seen it myself, so cannot judge, but I sincerely hope that the production version will be relatively small (911/F-type dimensions) and clearly differentiated from the Gran Turismo.

Today I heard that the Alfieri will not be coming out and it's strictly rumors. Because the Alfa Romeo 6C is coming out in a few years, FIAT doesn't deem it necessary to have the same car (Maserati and Alfa Romeo) be in the market. Plus, Alfa Romeo needs another car in their lineup. I heard this from a Maserati dealership but it is what I heard so I don't know how credible it is.

I have heard similar and that they will try and do a lighter, stripped out, V6 version of the new GranTurismo to fill the gap.

Timing of the new GranTurismo sounds uncertain and it could easily be as late as 2019. There is talk of the current car not meeting European emissions and having to stop sales come end of 2016. If so I presume they will keep it running to ROW as the 4C won't be enough to keep Modena busy?

I hope the rumors are not true. In Europe at least, there seems to be considerable interest in the Alfieri; i.e. a smaller, lighter, sportier car than the Gran Turismo.

FCA seem to be investing in Alfa at the moment. Even if the Alfieri is coming there seems to be little signs of information, mules out running etc. Ditto for the GranTurismo replacement for that matter. I guess it all depends on how much cash the Levante pulls in.

You are right - the company is amazingly quiet about future Maserati models. It is almost as if the company is incapable of handling more than one communication front at any point in time.

At least I hope the car will remain exactly the same for production as well, without any intervention from ferrari regarding the shape.... ;)

Recent? No... Last I read Bigland said the Alfieri was in an indefinite "holding pattern" and there was a "possibility" of a GT replacement for 2020. I would think that, given the recent refresh, the current incarnation would still be produced for another year or two simply to ensure Mas has a GT in their lineup.

Hello Merak1974, how are you doing (I was away from Maserati for a few years)?

Definitely great news about the Alfieri, can't wait to see the final version.

Hi Sunshine - I'm fine, thank you. I hope all is well with you too. ... Like you, I am patiently waiting for the "Alfieri" :smile2:


Cheers

WO WO WO STOP THE CLOCK! :grin2:

I'm turning 50 in 2020 and was going to splurge on a new Ferrari, Mclaren or the likes. If this is really happening and it will have blistering performance in the 2 sec 0-60 range, I'm in!
My '18 M5 is in the 2 sec crowd and it's insane, but to have an exotic goddess like this do the same.....!

LOL. This thread started in 2014! The current GT platform started in 2008 (designed before and ready to go in 2007). You can't make this stuff up! In 2007 Ferrari were on the 430. Then the new platform 458. It even got two major refreshes along the way in the 488 and the just-launched F8. Porsche were on the 997 back in 2007. Even Aston has long-since launched an all new Vantage (with their limited resources). This is embarrassing for Maserati.
