Maserati Kubang – Family Likeness Pix

By: Luca Ciferri, Automotive News Europe on 4/24/2012

Maserati says the Beijing motor show will be the fourth and final auto show appearance for its Kubang SUV concept.

“After Beijing, we will retire the Kubang concept. Our SUV will reappear in its production form and with its final name in due time,” Maserati CEO Harald Wester told Automotive News Europe on the sidelines of the show.

Sources say the production version of the SUV will appear at the Detroit auto show in January 2014.

Unveiled last September at the Frankfurt auto show, the Kubang also has been displayed at auto shows in Dubai and Detroit.

In Beijing, the Kubang was located near one of its future rivals, the Lamborghini Urus concept.

Maserati, Lamborghini and Bentley want to enter the SUV niche a decade after Porsche broke with tradition and rolled out the Cayenne in 2002. The Cayenne–not the brand’s iconic 911–accounted for half of Porsche’s 118,867 sales in 2011.

BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe @Geneva

The 2013 BMW 6-series Gran Coupe, pictured here in production guise for the first time, arrives just 20 months after it was previewed as a concept car at the 2010 Beijing motor show. It joins the existing coupe and convertible in an expanded range of 6-series models aiming to attract buyers who place greater emphasis on outright style than sheer practicality. It will make its public debut at the 2012 Geneva motor show.

Stylistically, the Gran Coupe is identical to the second-generation 6-series coupe and convertible, from its forward-leaning kidney grille to the upper trailing edge of its windscreen. However, the car adopts a longer roof structure, shorter front doors, more substantial B-pillars and two conventionally front-hinged rear doors, providing it with added levels of everyday practicality. But to maintain a degree of coupelike style, all four doors are frameless.
