I think Pride is overrated.

It's a good wine but I would never buy it again. "

Sticky created the thread Maserati likely to produce the Alfieri concept based on strong sales.
" Maserati is increasing volume considerably and generating quite a bit of sales. Due to this upward trend management is leaning toward production of the Alfieri. The production car will no doubt differ from the concept pictured below but this shows significant confidence in the brand.

The Alfieri would likely compete against the Jaguar F-Type and possibly the upcoming Mercedes AMG GT. Maserati does have a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 at their disposal along with boosted V6's.

A 500+ horsepower V8 would definitely make this car have the muscle under the hood to match its looks which is something the current Gran Turismo can not say. Additionally, with the Gran Turismo getting a bit old now the Alfieri certainly can slide in to take its place.

We will have to wait and see what happens but the outlook is bright for Maserati.

I don't think my M3 will be anywhere near this as it sits but I wouldn't mind doing a comparison and don't mind losing.

Good thread! Would love some more pics. "

Oh don’t get me started on Kiper. I don’t know the guy personally, but he’s a joke. The butt of so many jokes in scouting departments around the country. He’s a talking head and that’s about it, I could care less what he thinks. The concept of a draft “Grade” is insulting. These kids haven’t played a snap of NFL football, and we’re going to grade them? How can a player be a “reach” if we don’t have access to results? What a joke.

You are absolutely correct it’s a projection, that’s the nature of scouting. It’s why scouts tend to be quite aggressive, and coaches tend to talk us down off the ledge. I want to see upside, coaches want to see production and a high floor. It’s all give and take with limited information, and it’s getting harder and harder with how laughable simple NCAA football is becoming. You have entire conferences where an offensive play is as simple as “4”. No joke. That number tells each individual one thing, but they have ZERO understanding of what others are doing. So you have kids coming out of school now a days who genuinely have never had to learn what the player opposite to them is doing. It’s awful, but collegiate football is a gimmick to begin with.

Rant over….I share your frustration x10000 "

Tony, sometimes you get riled up way too quickly. Heh, man, this is a cool comparison of two different powerplants. That is it.

Two very different cars and of course the SLS Black Series is a ton more money. It isn't even a straightline car it just happens to be fast in a straightline as well.

To me, this is as cool as engine comparisons get when you get two very different approaches running like this. "

" I’ve been working through cutups of Jason Verrett since about 8 this morning, still cannot put my finger on how I feel about him. Can he play outside? That’s the real question. In terms of pure tape, his is better than any corner in this class. It’s simply outstanding. He has every tool I want to see in a corner, but as a bottom line matter he is height deficient. Were he blessed with an extra 3-4 inches or so, he’d be a top 10 pick absolutely no questions asked. Frustrating evaluation… "

Look, it isn't just about you. It is also about all the people from this point forward who will spend their hard earned dollars. Taking this down means the cycle can continue on indefinitely and countless more people can go through what you went through.

I am offering money out of pocket to you and I'm sure forum members will chip in to help when people see you are getting taken advantage of. Why let anyone threaten you and push you around? This should be exposed, not hidden.

I will not remove the thread. It does not help the tuning community it only masks problems. If you give in to them they will see they can use threats to get things pulled. It's essentially forum terrorism. What they should be doing is working positively to make sure you are happy and to prevent problems like this in the first place.

I'm sorry, I can't delete this for you. It goes against the principles of what we are trying to accomplish here. I'm more than open to working with you toward a positive solution rather than hiding this. "
