Vintage Maserati Quattroporte-amino Fire Truck Is Here To Save Us!

One of five cars built by the Construzione Estintori Anticendio of Bologna, this 1967 Maserati Quattroporte was camino-ized for firetruck duty. Known in their day as the "fastest fire tenders in the world," they were powered by the original 4.2-liter four-cam V8 engine that churned out a healthy 260 HP. Serving duty… »8/06/08 1:45pm8/06/08 1:45pm

Maserati Quattroporte S, Standing Still In Moving Picture

The 2009 Maserati Quattroporte S, with its 425 HP 4.7-liter V8, is as much a supercar as it is a mob boss-wafting luxury sedan. But apparently Maserati thinks the best way to show off their facelifted Q-ship isn't by showing it being wrung out on a twisty backroad or demonstrating how many dead thugs can fit in the… »7/09/08 12:15pm7/09/08 12:15pm

PCH, Dante Alighieri Thinks You Deserve It Edition: Lamborghini Jarama Or Maserati Quattroporte?

We love to pit one high-end Italian car against another in this series; we've had Ferrari 250 versus Lamborghini Diablo, Espada versus Espada, Ferrari Mondial versus Maserati Coupe, among others. Up until now, however, a Lamborghini has never vied with a Maserati for a place in your Garage Of Eternal Suffering. We've… »6/25/08 5:20pm6/25/08 5:20pm

2009 Maserati Quattroporte and Quattroporte S Revealed

If you love the Maserati Quattroporte, these photos of the 2009 Maserati Quattroporte S should warm your heart. If you don't love the QP, we're sure with enough therapy you can turn things around.

2010 Maserati Quattroporte Spied In Italy, Testing California Motor?

With forthcoming competition in the form of the Porsche Panamera and the Aston Martin Rapide, Maserati has apparently decided it's time for the Quattroporte to get its game face on. Behind the saggy cladding on this tester is said to be a new face with a grille similar to that found on the Gran Turismo coupe. But… »5/19/08 3:20pm5/19/08 3:20pm

Maserati Cinqueporte Proves That Five Doors Are Better Than Four

We love the unique design of the Maserati Quattroporte but have always felt something was missing. Clearly, what was missing was a fifth door. It may not be Maximum Wagon Day, but it's hard not to appreciate how wonderfully unnecessary this vehicle is. And how do you know that it's wonderfully unnecessary? The order… »2/25/08 1:00pm2/25/08 1:00pm

Detroit Auto Show: Maserati releases even more exclusive Quattroporte, the Collezione Cento

At first glance, we were tempted to write this limited edition off as an attempt to flog unwanted cars. But looking at the interior pictures in detail, it looks like the Quattroporte Collezione Cento might actually be something special. The 100 units built will feature a standard multimedia system which can show… »1/13/08 6:12pm1/13/08 6:12pm

Project Car Hell, Fourth Circle: Quattro or Quattroporte?

After listening to the Jack Astro & the Asscrackistanis hit single, we approach the results of yesterday's Mix-n-Match Engine Swap Hell poll with a new understanding. The Ferarri-powered Porsche 912 didn't win because the swap process itself might be slightly less hellish than, say, the Series 60 Morris. No, it won… »10/11/07 5:00pm10/11/07 5:00pm
