    Did Jag make any money off that little POS 4 door? It seems like the same exact thing (iffy quality sportish car maker goes low end).

    I had forgotten that one. For good reason. Looks like a K Car. Or an American Eagle.

    I for one like the idea of this move by Maserati, but the 16/22 (I expect) mileage would make it a non-starter for me. Also, while I like the Gran Turismo, I think that the Quattroporte is a bit boring, and this looks similarly underwhelming to me.

    But the acceleration specs look good to me, and it isn't IMO bad looking.

    I don't see why anyone would buy a Quattroporte with this on the market, though, so I see this cannibalizing almost all of those sales. Maybe this is a lot smaller. Can't really tell from this info.
