I appreciate your sensitivityAs you have a Ghibli, I accept your response. Its difficult for us to put our feelings across without upsetting members who have these cars so don't take it personally, its more of a shot at Maserati, not its customers.
I do however agree with you that they should have produced a Ghibli Stradale and showed just how good the car could have been. This points that they have no interest in performance and are only interested in shifting units but it looks like its come back and bitten them on the @rse!
I know and accept my circumstances, of high mile driving. Had a diesel Ghibli not come on the scene I would still be in Alfas. The direction they have gone means they have a car that suits my needs now. I know this is not to everyones liking. Some of the parts may have come from the FCA parts bin, however, if you want (and heres the key) an E segment saloon with a diesel engine then for me the Ghibli won vs BMW / Audi / Merc / Porsche
And they did indeed make 8000 cars, to order, with Ferrari DNA.... but were losing money!
