  • Alleged patent drawings for 2014 Maserati Quattroporte

    UPDATE: The 2014 Maserati Quattroporte has been revealed. Click here for all the photos and details. Prototypes for Maserati’s next-gen Quattroporte sedan have been spied across Europe for more than a year now, but so far all of these test vehicles have been heavily disguised. This means that the final shape of the new Quattroporte is still very much a mystery, although new sketches alleged to be patent drawings for the car have surfaced and give away most of the design. The drawings, first posted by AutoWeek.nl, are claimed to have been found on a registry for trademarks and designs in...

    Maserati Boss Drops More Hints On New Mid-Engine GranSport

    Just last month reports broke claiming Maserati was planning a new mid-engine sports car to take on the likes of the Porsche 911, a car that could even revive the GranSport name. At the time, Maserati CEO Harald Wester said it was just a proposal and nothing had been confirmed. Now, in a recent...

    Ferrari To Build Engines For Other Fiat Companies: Report

    If rumors out of Italy are correct, Ferrari will invest some 50 million euros ($62.2 million) on a new assembly line to produce forced-induction V-6 and normally aspirated V-8 engines. Those powerplants won’t be destined for vehicles with a prancing horse emblem on the grille, but instead...

  • Maserati Kubang SUV

    When the exported-from-Detroit 2013 Maserati Kubang goes on sale, it will become the very first Maserati model to carry a diesel engine. At least one V-8 gasoline engine will be offered as well, as that’s what most buyers will expect to see (and hear) beneath the hood. As Maserati’s vice-president of product development, Roberto Corradi, told England’s What Car?, a diesel engine option is seen as necessary to compete with rivals in the European Union. Porsche’s Cayenne is offered up in a 3.0-liter V-6 turbodiesel variant in Europe (and soon, America), and BMW recently...

    Is Maserati Working On A Mid-Engine Porsche 911 Turbo-Fighter?

    We're never ones to look a gift horse in the mouth, so to speak, but it's with a healthy sprinkling of salt that we take the latest rumors out of Italy: a Maserati mid-engine coupe to rival the Porsche 911 Turbo. The idea is fantastic, of course. Maserati's styling is mostly brilliant, its...

Coincidently, none of us drive a Maserati, either. If we did drive a...

  • Maserati GranTurismo Sport live photos

    It's no secret Maserati's GrandTurismo S is aging, but Maserati has decided to rectify the problem by introducing the new GranTurismo Sport at the Geneva Motor Show. If the new GranTurismo Sport looks familiar, that's probably because it's the coupe version of the gorgeous GranTurismo Convertible Sport that launched last year. Powered by a 460-horsepower 4.7-liter V-8 engine, the GrandTurismo Sport will hit 60 mph from a standstill in under 5.0 seconds on its way to a top speed of over 177 mph. The power is sent to the rear wheels via a ZF sourced six-speed automatic transmission or an...

    1969 Maserati Ghibli 4.7: Pure elegance

    There are a lot of great cars on the market today. There are even some beautiful ones. But there' just something about the lines of a classic that can't be matched or imitated.

    The 2012 Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is the lightest, most powerful Maserati on the road.

Novitec Tridente straps a supercharger to the MC Stradale's 4.7-liter V-8...

  • Maserati Kubang SUV

    Named like an onomatopoeic Batman fight scene exclamation, the Maserati Kubang will be built in Detroit for American buyers sometime in 2013. This video is the first to show it on the road. Smacking heavily of computer generation, the video does a fair amount of brand-building before it gets around to showing off the Kubang, but given its classy looks and expected high performance (for an SUV), we're willing to cut it some slack. For the full details of the Kubang--or at least what little Maserati has released so far--check out our preview here. ________________________________ See more...
