The Maserati is one of the premium sports cars in the world. They have taken a bold step and asked a group of students from Italy's Istituto Europeo DiDesign to come up with a concept. It's known as the Maserati Chicane coupe. The final design will be 2+2 seating with a front mounted V8 engine. It will be shown at the Geneva Auto Show in March.

Implications - In this technology-infused world, the possibilities for futuristic devices seem endless to consumers always looking for the newest concept. Cell phones, music players, computers and even automobiles that are not only aesthetically futuristic and top-of-the-line, but also are innovative in capabilities will generate high levels of buzz and see increased consumption levels as a direct result.
