Maserati GranTurismo S – Click above for a high-res image gallery

As the prospective launch date approaches, everyone's wondering what will become of the upcoming Maserati Spyder. Some big questions remain about what shape the new GranTurismo cabrio will take: will it have four seats, or will the folding top take up the cramped rear quarters? Will it have a soft top like its predecessor, or a hard top like its Ferrari counterpart? Will it offer the 400hp 4.2-liter V8 from the base GranTurismo, or the 435hp 4.7-liter unit from the GranTurismo S? One way or another, sources suggest we'll find out soon enough, placing it on the road by early next year, with a springtime market launch likely. That means its debut could come as early as the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, or else wait for the Geneva Motor Show in March. Expect the sticker price to come in below the Ferrari California, targeting the likes of the Aston Martin DB9 Volante, Bentley Continental GTC, BMW M6 convertible, Jaguar XKR convertible and Mercedes-Benz SL-Class and at around $130,000.

      the coupe is already so heavy, so i wonder how they are going to keep the convertible at a reasonable weight.

        Never heard that one before, but a very apt statement nonetheless....

      Normally I feel like Maserati's look much better in person, and the pictures are not so flattering. This one is just gorgeous even in pictures, I can't wait to see one!

      beautiful car but everyone and their mother in LA has one. i think i see these more often than bentley continental GT's now, which are dime a dozen.

      maserati would do well for themselves to make this car with a six-speed stick. people looking for a car like this at least want the option of rowing their own gears instead of using maserati's "f1" transmission, which has not been so great in past iterations of this beautiful car
