I think the reaction most people had when they found out I was driving a 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC for the weekend was: “Holy hell, they still make that thing?” Yes, in fact, they do and the world is a more glorious place because of it.
In terms of dinosaurs, the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo kind of is one, as the first GranTurismo came out in 2007. Surprisingly, you can still buy one new today and you know what? It’s still pretty good. Especially the sound.
Recently, we told the tale of a man who achieved a lifelong dream of buying a Maserati, only to have it break again... again, and again, forever, causing him to wonder whether he’d be able to feed his children or keep the lights on. But a kind soul on the internet came to the rescue with a simple fix.
Craigslist is a tricky place. Some people seem honest about a vehicle’s condition, others seem to be typing up things that are just too good to be true. But rarely are Craigslist car ads so captivating, and so truthful, that you’ll sit through 11 paragraphs of someone’s misery without getting bored. This was one of…
Time to fire up the Biturbo and tackle your Wednesday! If it, you know, works. Which it probably won’t.
Like many parents, I have a child who’s interested in cars, which is an interest I’m more than happy to encourage. Lately, he’s been especially fascinated with car badges and emblems, and loves to point out as many as possible. When he sees one he doesn’t recognize, he asks me. Normally, this is fine, but the other…
Ah, Friday. At last. A chance to pull the Maserati Khamsin out of the garage and let it stretch its car-legs a bit.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Sergio Marchionne, our favorite Guy Who Definitely Has Solid Plans and CEO of Fiat Chrysler, revealed a plan to push his company towards hybrid and fully electric models, which isn’t such a bad idea. The bad news is that it’s been decided Maserati will be the halo brand for this.
Maserati is just now getting around to offering a certified pre-owned program, which isn’t surprising since historically Italian cars and reliability didn’t often go together. But if you want a depreciated Maserati and worry about repairs, a CPO car could be just the thing.
You are familiar with this car, yes? The 2017 Maserati Levante? Known for its stellar quality and unbeatable reliability, right? Of course not. It is Italian.
I forgot about the 2008 Maserati A8GCS Berlinetta Touring prototype. I had also forgotten how much I liked it.
I’ve always been excited at the prospect of a concept car or design study. Heck, I was excited when Ford revealed the new Fiesta a few weeks ago. There’s just something about the reveal of a new look that’s fun, and what Fiat Chrysler has these college students working on is what I’m all about.
Usually, when an online car buying scam goes down it’s for some beater car off Craigslist. One scammer decided to take his operation to another level by conning an exotic car dealer out of a 2014 Maserati GranTurismo selling for $81,900.
Lapo Elkann, billionaire heir to the Italian family that built Fiat and a notorious playboy, was arrested in New York last weekend for faking his own kidnapping with an escort, multiple news sources report.
Nearly everyone seems to be jumping on the electric vehicle bandwagon, including Maserati. Only it has no intention of making a “Tesla fighter” because Teslas are “not the best.”
Maserati is “working to be ready” with an electric vehicle that it hopes to show off by 2020, the company’s engineering boss said in a recent interview with Car & Driver. He also said that electric-car maker Tesla is “not the best,” and that making a Tesla rival probably isn’t a good idea.
Just don’t send me the bill, because I’m a big fan of getting the last laugh.
If you had to think of two ends of a spectrum of classiness in the automotive world, with one end being as class-free as a drunken hammer fight in a Wal-Mart parking lot, and the other end as classy as a princess on a gilded horse, what would be at each end? Maybe a novelty car horn that honked out tunes on the…
If I asked a random sampling of my audience to recollect one of their most memorable dreams, I’d likely hear something extremely outlandish, proving that only something truly shocking will make it into your memory banks. Having said that, this crazy cheap Maserati proves that the same concept applies to cars, as it…
