Maserati FuoriSerie Wants to Build Retro Rekall Model

Box flares are back, says Maserati

  • Project Rekall a modern Shamal

  • Best of the brand’s 1980s styling


Maserati‘s personalisation arm is doing more than just adding fancy interiors. They’re designing entire cars like this 80s-inspired coupe that they’ve just posted to Instagram. Even better, they’ll actually build it. But they’re going to need some help.

Called Project Rekall (spotted via TopSpeed.com), this takes some of the best of Maser’s 1980s styling, including the Biturbo, Ghibli, and the Shemal, all two-door coupes, the latter two getting a shortened wheelbase compared with the first, but all looking delightfully 80s chunky.

The Rekall, well, recalls all of that well, thanks to bulging but angular fenders, a hood designed with a straight edge, and the grille that made Maserati cool in that decade. With more modern headlights, taillights, and giant wheels.

Maserati Fuoriserie says it wants to build the car, which it describes as being from ModenaCity-One. “Sharp edges, box fenders, up-to-date technology and sci-fi taste is what’s on the menu,” they said in the post.

The branch of the company wants this car to see production, but, as it says in the post, “we’ll need your help to get there.” It’s not entirely clear if that means that Maserati wants fans, likes, and social media engagement, or if the automaker is looking for well-heeled customers to send them a cheque and then wait for a car. We’re hoping that it’s the latter and that enough fans of Italian styling will put their money where their eyeballs are and help Maserati make this one a reality.
