Below is a spy pic of the next generation Maserati Spyder from a recent C&D (APR 2004). I don't think anyone posted this before but I might be mistaken. Anyway, it is supposed to be based on the QP platform - shortened version. Given the amount of investment Maserati put into the new sedan, and the aging of the current coupe/spyder platform, I think this spy pic is pretty believable. According to C&D, it should be available in 2005 or 2006 - also believable. What I question is C&D's claim that the new motor will have 200 extra CCs (4.4 L total), and about 400 hp. I would expect a more substantial increase in both displacement and power (currently at 4.2 L and 390/400 HP). Also, since it seems that the present-day 4.2 L engine will be seen in the new "Monza", perhaps the next-gen Maser will once again be a test bed for a future Monza replacement. If so, this also makes the case for at least more HP. Anyone have more concrete information? Any thoughts??
