Could the A8GCS be the basis for a new Maserati baby coupe?

Revealed at the 2008 Concorso d”Eleganza Villa d”Este, the new A8 GCS Berlinetta is a design study by the newly relauched Carrozerria Touring Superleggera. But could this new small coupe design study become a reality for the Maserati lineup?

According to Carrozerriz Touring Superleggera, the A8 GCS Berlinetta is just an idea as of right now. However, Maserati is considering adding a small new coupe priced between £50,000 and £60,000 to take on the Porsche 911, Mercedes CLK, Nissan GT-R and the BMW M3.

Roberoto Ronchi, the big boss at Maserati, says that the Italian company needs a third model if it wishes to continue making profit. No power details have been released as of yet but we wouldn’t mind the 4.2 liter V8 delivering 405-hp from the GranTursimo.
