    Only a couple of years ago, Maserati was selling around 6,000 cars per year on the back of two model lines: the Quattroporte and GranTurismo. Not surprisingly, many scoffed when the automaker announced in 2011 it would increase annual sales to 50,000 units and launch three additional model lines by the end of 2015. Given its latest results, Maserati appears well poised to reach its goal. In 2013, the automaker managed to deliver 15,400 vehicles worldwide, a new record for the marque and quite the leap over the previous record of 8,600 vehicles delivered in 2008. The past year’s result...
