Just two days ago we were reporting that Maserati is preparing a new mid-engined sports car to rival Porsche 911 and today we have a pretty cool rendering of the future car for you. The company is being pretty secretive about this new model, but we still have enough time to learn about it as an official debut is not expected until late in 2014.
It has been rumored that Maserati might revive the GranSport name, so this new model could carry this name. But no matter how it will be called, one thing is for sure: it will share various performance aspects with the Ferrari 458 Italia.
The new Maserati could feature a mid-engined V-8 powerplant like those found in the Audi R8 and Ferrari 458 Italia, but of course do not expect to see it deliver an output of 570 HP. Still the fact that Maserati is trying to come with a Porsche 911 competitor is pretty admirable considering that many other companies have tried and failed. But we have big faith in Maserati, so fingers crossed!
