Of the two models Maserati is working on (a smaller car that will compete with models like the Porsche Boxster and a Spyder version of its GranTurismo) the GT Spyder is the easiest to imagine. After all just take the current GranTurismo and chop off the top.
There’s nothing new rumored to be going on underneath the skin either. The spyder is expected to share architecture with the Quattroporte and utilize a 399 hp 4.2-liter V8, just like the hardtop version. But the fact there’s no improvements doesn’t matter, it’s still a beautiful Italian. In fact, its a topless beautiful Italian. So we will be first in line at 2009 at the Frankfurt Auto Show to try and find out more.
