If they can make the Alfieri the base for a number of different vehicles, it has a lot more chance of becoming a reality.

Exaclty.

But but before I think that China was more in the picture for Maserati.

It is worth remembering that Porsche has adjusted things quite a bit since the Cayenne first came out. They didn't get it perfect the first time around.

I don't think they would make Maseratis unique for China, but I do think that they may tailor vehicles more towards China. Those vehicles would still be sold globally though.

Do you think a lot of people will simply purchase the Gran Turismo instead of the Alfieri? Or are the two vehicles really too different for that to be a general trend?

FCA has so many brands that its hard to have any architecture that is solely for one vehicle or brand. That is a weakness. I think FCA has too many brands. They need to chop some. It's hard, but I...

But MB is now turning to hybrids. Everyone has to in order to keep up with regulations. And performance isn't an excuse. It has already been done by other brands so it is possible.

I don't see it as outdated. I also think I have to see it in person. The more rectangular base shape of the SUV might be dated, but it also could just be a cool styling element that makes it...

In certain circumstances I think that would work. A performance trim for the Aliferi could compete with the AMG GT, for example.

I am gonna have to see it in person because sometimes the proportions look weird with the more square rear end, but generally I like it. I think its better than the first Cayenne was.

It makes sense from their perspective. I am just saying that there is probably a significant problem when you bring in a brand new exec in order to take care of it.

It has all the potential. If Porsche can do it then Maserati can. It really could be the thing to catapult the Maserati brand. I am hopeful.

It certainly does signal good things. I think more hybrids could really contribute to reversing FCA's fortunes because right now they spend so much buying carbon credits.

I just have never understood buying something so nice that you don't want to use or touch it. Seems like the definition of conspicuous consumption.

There are hybrids and EVs that are very capable from a performance stand point. I think it's a lie that hybrids mean you have to sacrifice performance.

I suppose Maserati is close to Lexus but the brands have sufficiently different styling that I don't immediately equate the two.
