The 10 Sexiest Classic Italian Cars of All Time

When sitting down trying to come up with a list of the 10 sexiest classic Italian cars, a couple of things are immediately clear to me; Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. And it is not only about the looks of a car. It definitely has nothing at all to do with […]

Maserati Plans To Add Small Crossover In Quest For Global Sales

The ink is hardly dry on Maserati’s decision to produce one crossover SUV, but Car and Driver reports that another one is coming. Maserati has toyed with the idea of making an SUV for years. Recently, Fiat committed to making a large investment into the brand, with the goal of growing sales to 50,000 units […]

Maserati Has High Hopes for 2014 Quattroporte

Maserati Has High Hopes for 2014 Quattroporte

It has been over ten years since we have heard about Alfa Romeo’s imminent reentry into the United States market. In an interesting twist of fate, the Fiat brand has actually launched before it.

A nice exhaust note is a key part of the experience – whether it is a high-strung scream or a low burble. That sensation is one that really is only had with a traditional internal combustion engine. Electric cars? Forget […]

Rumors: Mid-Engined Maserati GranSport Based on 458 Italia

Maserati’s current lineup is biased toward the luxury/grand touring end of the spectrum. That market positioning has come as part of a plan to keep it differentiated from Ferrari.
