    When I showed the car around work, the Maserati is the first car a co-worker mentioned. The resemblance is remarkable.

    Hey, that's way too similar to be a coincidence!
    Look at the mirrors, almost the same. The whole difference is a littlebit longer tail.

    Hmm, what's going on here??

    Follow the links - someone took the white Model S photos and did a photochop rework on them and blended in Maserati bits.
    It is a work of fiction, rather well done.

    Model S is as good as it can be as a 4 door.

    You get a $7,500 rebate for buying the Model S. You pay a gas-guzzler tax for buying the Maserati... hummmm...

    Some nice Photoshop work, and it ends up looking like a fairly stylish Maserati at that. I don't like the port-holes though; those always look a little tacky.
