Was the Subaru BRZ design influenced by the Maserati GranTurismo?

Ever since I took delivery of the Subaru BRZ press car I've had a sneaking suspicion that its design (and therefore Toyota GT86 and Scion FR-S) was influenced by the Maserati GranTurismo, and not just because these two come in a similar shade of blue - so I put this together.

What do you think?  Coincidence or influence?
