Maserati CEO wants a mid-engined sports car to take on the Porsche 911 Turbo

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 1, 2012

It appears that Fiat wants to take things even further with its Maserati brand as the Italian carmaker wants a mid-engined sports car in order to take on the mighty Porsche 911. According to our Italian sources, it appears that the upcoming sports car will debut in 2015 and will feature a carbon chassis as well as a V8 engine.

Harald Wester, CEO of Maserati and Alfa Romeo has some ambitious plans and he seems committed to refresh the lineup. With a price of less than 150,000 the new Maserati will take on cars such as the Porsche 911 Turbo and the Audi R8, and will be the perfect fit for the market place left untouched by the more expensive Ferrari brand.

As we said, the car is expected to receive a V8 engine, more exactly a 4.7-liter V8, mated to a dual-clutch gearbox derived from Ferrari. The bad news is that the car is only an idea and will be proposed by Harald Wester at the board meeting.
