Curious about what the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte will look like? Recent spy shots of the big Maserati sedan haven't been much help, but now we have this: Three alleged patent drawings found by AutoWeek.nl. Better fire up your imagination, however, as like all European Patent Office images, these sketches have the unique ability to suck the beauty out of even Italian cars. Truth be told, if AutoWeek.nl had told us this was a new Buick, we might have believed them.

That said, we can certainly see the resemblance in the rear to the Maserati GranTurismo, with a similar C-pillar and that little flipped-up spoiler. In the front, too, we imagine the new Quattroporte will resemble its sportier sibling, with the crude lines from these drawings turned into more voluptuous curves through the magic of modern manufacturing.

Rumors say the next-gen sedan will be available with a choice of two engines assembled by Ferrari, either a turbocharged V8 or a supercharged V6. We're likely to see the new Quattroporte in the flesh for the first time at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

        awesome, thanks for these links evilzibob! It obviously has a longer wheelbase now, I'm guessing to make room for a smaller sedan. The 6-window greenhouse is a surprise to me. Overall, it seems to be a bit "blockier" but again, I would guess this is to make it as roomy as possible to sit above a smaller one.

      I'll reserve judgement for when I see the actual car. These type of drawings are not flattering to any design

      K9. Looks great for a Kia. Oh wait it's not a Kia? It's a Maserati! Fusion. Looks great for a Ford. Oh wait it's not a Ford? It's an Aston Marton!

      I googled 2014 Quattroporte images last week and was hoping of all the versions I found that this one wouldn't be it. Oh well, its not like I was actually buying one anyway. This thing is supposed to share significant parts with the next gen 300/Charger I believe though..

      Johnny Ng will come on here and tell us how this cars sucks and how a Leuxs ES is a much better car.

      I had high hopes for the next Quattroporte. It is the car that has the license and the bloodline to be something truly special. I am more viscerally drawn to the Hyundai Sonata. Something's wrong with that. I feel like the luxury car market is lost in the woods right now. They used to have the market cornered on style, features, technology, and performance. Now there is a littany of choices below $35,000 that offer just everything on the wish list. It's time for the next quantum leap. It's time for luxury cars to again chart new territory and show us the future once more.

      Does anyone see the resemblance of the 2007-2009 v36 G35/37 sedan here? Particularly the front 1/4...

      Yuck. The Quattroporte just never did it for me. I'll go as far to say it's down-right UG-LY. Seriously. The proportions are god awful. Generic shape. Gross details. Frumpy front end. Buick Lucerne. The rear looks better, but I hate how this gets so much love just because of the badge. I'd take a Rapide of a Panamera over this any day. Sad really, because the Gran Turismo is stunning.

      Since Fiat bought Chrysler, I always wonder when they were going to bring the 300M back. Never knew M stands for Maserati. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/2d/2002-2004_Chrysler_300M_--_05-23-2012.JPG/640px-2002-2004_Chrysler_300M_--_05-23-2012.JPG

      Hmm looks like they're getting lazy, copying everyone elses styling. You'd think at the price point this car is at they'd do something more groundbreaking..........but sadly they just mash up a Buick front and a Hyundai Sonata back and call it their Quattroporte...............more correctly call it a Copyporte

      Looks good, except for the generic rear. Looks like the sonata/GS/ES/Impala/azera.
