Well its a tentative yes from me. Would depend upon which is better as to which way I would go. Electric (rumoured) would be a no go for me but if the Alfa has the QV engine and the Alfieri the Ghibli S lump then the styling on the Alfieri would have to be monumentally better for me to take it over the proven Alfa.If the 6C and Alfieri are so similar what would people buy?
Given the timescales I'm expecting a range of power plants for the Alfieri and not all of them at launch. Something like; existing V6, existing V6 + electric as a hybrid, fuil electric.Well its a tentative yes from me. Would depend upon which is better as to which way I would go.

Personally I see them running the same engine...why wouldn't they?
Personally I feel they would have to be different under the skin, Alfieri Electric and faster (more expensive by Â£20k) and the Alfa running the QV engine....so it would be the Alfa for me.
I'm not sure its that bad. The drive will be the same from the gearbox back. Its just a case of having to fit the existing Maserati engine and ancillaries into the engine bay instead of the Alfa ones. Mild hybrid would be good. Or electric motors on the front wheels to replace the existing Q4 system and give a plugin hybrid capability.It would be lunacy to have two sister cars with different V6s.. the cost of developing 2 vs 1.
Could be something like the Alfa gets the petrol and the Maser gets a mild hybrid petrol (cam driven type)
+1 (second time today...you must be coming round to my way of thinking!)Yawn.
I now can't get excited or even interested in any Maserati related news. Which is a crying shame given how much I (and lots of you) love the brand and it's history. Same old story, the need a marketing rocket up their corporate behinds before they force us all to leave. My car is a 2011 model and there is literally nowhere to go with Maserati and doesn't look there will be for a couple of years at least. And then I'd want someone else to swallow the first year of depreciation.
I see a Ferrari on my horizon.
Hehehehehe....made me titter....It’s like a Unicorn but even harder to spot. I think one saw one once but it was probably a mirage.
