Bigland Gets a Break as Fiat Chrysler Shuffles the Executive Deck

Mon, 05 Feb 2018 21:30:10 +0000

There’s going to be a lot less Italian in Reid Bigland’s diet going forward, after Fiat Chrysler Automobiles removed the Alfa Romeo and Maserati portfolios from the high-ranking executive’s oversight. It’s all part of a broader raft of management changes announced today. Bigland, quite a star in FCA’s upper echelon, will continue in his existing […]

Rare Rides: The Cadillac Allanté, Which Was a Race Car in 1992

Tue, 09 Jan 2018 18:38:28 +0000

The year is 1986. There’s a new, V8-powered convertible on the horizon from Cadillac — the Standard of the World. This particularly special convertible is slotted above the Eldorado in the product lineup. And it was designed by a famed Italian house. You’re drooling by now, 1986 person. Vamanos, to Allanté! Much like Chrysler’s TC by Maserati, […]

Maserati Recalling Brand New Sedans Over Fire Risk

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 19:45:40 +0000

Maserati of North America is recalling over 1,000 of its newest luxury sedans to repair fuel lines that pose an engine fire risk. It’s not exactly what you’d want to hear when discussing your fresh, six-figure status symbol, but the automaker appears to be addressing the problem right out of the gate. According to the […]

Rare Rides: This 1972 Maserati Mexico Is Actually From Spain

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 17:30:47 +0000

Open the wood paneled glove box lid to find familiar fine-grain Italian leather driving gloves. Fingers twist a small, delicate key to ignite 4.7 liters of displacement sitting under the long, gleaming hood. Eyes are met with a proud golden trident, embedded in navy inside the three-spoke wheel. Select “drive” with the polished wooden gearshift; […]

Rare Rides: A 1989 Chrysler TC by Maserati – the Lemon Mix-up

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 17:04:07 +0000

The heart of a K-Car, the styling of a LeBaron, the build quality of an Italian, and the price of a Corvette. Just one car in the history of the world managed to combine all these virtues together into a gelatinous, custard-like vehicle. And our Rare Ride today just happens to have a similar color, too. […]

Sergio Says Maserati Needs Another SUV

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 19:30:22 +0000

Nobody could have predicted the success Porsche was to enjoy after introducing a performance-oriented sport utility vehicle in 2002. When the German manufacturer introduced the Cayenne, everyone scoffed, claiming the very idea of a sporting high-end SUV was patently ridiculous. It’s now 15 years later and every premium brand is trying to replicate Porsch’s success […]

Rare Rides: Maserati Merak SS From 1981 – a Seventies Time Warp

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 17:41:38 +0000

We’ve featured a Maserati previously in our Rare Rides series — a bespoke Quattroporte shooting brake which drew mixed styling opinions from the informed and gracious peanut gallery of the B&B. Today though, we step back in time to something closer to the traditional two-door, sporty exotica that makes up much of the brand’s history. Presenting a […]

Jeep’s Probably Too Important to Spin Off, but Other Brands Could Get the Heave-ho: Report

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 16:00:10 +0000

So, a Chinese automobile manufacturer, Great Wall Motors, would totally love it if Fiat Chrysler Automobiles flung the Jeep brand its way. Who wouldn’t? In the mid-1980s, Jeep was the ruby in AMC’s crown, and its new (and highly profitable) Cherokee line had Chrysler Corporation chairman Lee Iacocca salivating at the thought of where he […]

Light Entertainment: Answers To the Matching Taillight Challenge

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 18:34:53 +0000

Last week, we showed you four different vehicles, each with strikingly similar taillamps. So began the Taillamp Identification Challenge. (Un)fortunately, Flybrian was around, and came up with the correct answers just 10 minutes after the post went live. So, the challenge was short lived, and all props go to Flybrian’s keen taillamp eye. It’s almost like he knows […]

Sergio Warms up to Electrification, Even As FCA’s Light-duty Diesels Get the Green Light

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 14:18:38 +0000

It’s no secret that hybrids and fully electric vehicles are about as appealing to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne as a crisp, button-up shirt. The FCA boss once famously railed against his company’s sole electric offering — the tiny, money-losing Fiat 500e — for losing $10,000 for every unit sold. Placating California doesn’t come cheap. Still, […]

Wedge Wonders – the Influence of the Angular Era in Automotive Design

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 14:00:17 +0000

Though it may seem hard to believe, we’re only a month away from celebrating the 50th anniversary of the start of the Wedge Era in automotive designs. To those of us who still think of the Countach as a sharp enough design to be considered cutting edge, this is a sad reality. Yet the prototype […]

Sergio Marchionne: Maybe EVs are the Future, Who Knows, What the Hell…

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 16:24:13 +0000

Shortly after publicly dissing Tesla for the umpteenth time and speculating that electric cars aren’t the future, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne now says he wants to make an electric car. Well, maybe. If he has to. But it’s probably gonna happen. This EV thing could be big, you know. The indecisive company head […]

FCA’s Friendly Giant Given Keys to Alfa Romeo, Maserati

Tue, 24 May 2016 13:00:19 +0000

Look up, waaaay up. Human redwood and former Canadian junior hockey star Reid Bigland adds yet another set of responsibilities to his resume thanks to an executive shuffle at FCA. Bigland replaces Harald Wester as CEO of both Alfa Romeo and Maserati brands effective immediately, though Wester retains his Chief Technology Officer position with the group. Both men […]

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 20:00:18 +0000

On Wednesday, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne will update investors on his long-term plans and fourth-quarter profits — namely, how many Jeeps it sold — during his scheduled earnings conference call. It’s widely expected that Sergio will address the near-certainty that Jeep will build a pickup based on the Wrangler, as well as the […]

Fiat Chrysler Rebuffs Claims of Falsifying Sales

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 15:00:13 +0000

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles on Thursday released a statement strongly denying claims made by a Illinois dealer that the automaker was strong-arming its dealers into reporting bogus sales and illegally paying complicit dealers to continue its long-running sales growth. This lawsuit is nothing more than the product of two disgruntled dealers who have failed to perform their obligations […]

Maserati May Have Falsified Monthly Sales Before FCA Went Public

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 21:47:31 +0000

According to a report by Automotive News, Maserati North America may have falsified nearly half their sales in December 2014 and an undisclosed amount for other months through a demonstration car scheme that rewarded dealers for being complicit in the scheme. A lawsuit filed by Recovery Racing, owner of multiple Maserati stores in the northeastern U.S., […]

Fiat Chrysler Reportedly Showing Dealers Impossibly Fun Cars That We May Never See

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 18:00:36 +0000

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles may be showing off a Dodge Barracuda convertible, a next-generation Charger, Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and a Grand Wagoneer — they probably put root beer in the fountains too — according to multiple media reports. At the dealer meeting in Las Vegas, FCA executives outlined the future for the brands (Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, […]

Motorcars, Manhattan and Money

Sat, 09 May 2015 15:00:47 +0000

  It’s impossible to visit Manhattan without noticing wealth and privilege. Though I’m loathe to use the P word as it’s been corrupted by politics, how else can you describe someone driving a S Class Mercedes-Benz with “MD” New York license plates other than as affluent and expecting special treatment from parking enforcement that won’t be extended to […]

Maserati Sells As Many Units Through June 2014 As It Had For All Of 2013

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 11:00:40 +0000

Maserati may have had a slow 2013 as far as sales go, but the Italian brand is on pace to sell within the first half of 2014 as many cars as it had in the last year. Reuters reports CEO Harald Wester said that while the United States was Maserati’s biggest market, China, Italy and […]

Marchionne’s Grand Vision For FCA Faces Hard Financial Road To Success

Thu, 08 May 2014 12:00:11 +0000

Though Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne’s five-year plan announced this week may be ambitious, analysts are raising questions about how the plan will be funded — and how much will be needed — if it is to be successful, let alone live up to Marchionne’s vision. Automotive News Europe reports a large part of […]

Review: 2009 Maserati GranTurismo S

Fri, 13 Mar 2009 17:31:46 +0000

(image)

Walking towards the Maserati GranTurismo S, I felt like a teenager trying not to stare at a Playmate's breasts. While the "base" GranTurismo's elegant lines, dignified proportions and powerful stance had captivated my attention, the S dared me not to look. I know; it's stupid. At the ripe old age of near-50, I'm supposed to have left my spoiler infatuation with the pet rock slowly starving to death in the basement. And yet, somehow, the GranTurismo's tail made the Maser's design pop, blending pole position with pole dancing. Yes, well, I'd just driven the base Maserati GranTurismo and found the brakes, seats and handling wanting. So I was ready to be disappointed. If you're jump aversive, here's the bottom line: I was and I wasn't.

2008 Maserati GT Review

Wed, 09 Jan 2008 11:22:05 +0000

(image) Thanks to modern speed enforcement, the idea of leaping large continents in a hugely fast, spectacularly comfortable car has become something of a quaint notion. And yet, upscale manufacturers still compete to build the ultimate GT (Gran Turismo). Reflecting the concept’s European origins, the short list of candidates for this honor all originate on the other side of the pond: the Mercedes CL63, Bentley Continental GT, Aston Martin DB9, BMW 650, Jaguar XKR and the Maserati GT. Having owned or reviewed all but the new Maserati, I decided to see if the mad Italian has what it takes to trump its continental cousins.

Maserati Quattroporte Automatica Review

Wed, 14 Feb 2007 11:43:39 +0000

(image) Since its introduction in 2004, the fifth gen Maserati Quattroporte has been a sedan poised on the brink of greatness. Its fatal flaw: a clunky automated manual transmission ill-suited to the model’s luxury mission. Unlike some propeller-badged Germans we could name, Maserati’s Italian parent heeded the catcalls directed at its high tech gearbox. FIAT sourced a ZF six speed fully automatic transmission to cure the problem, subito. So, are we there yet?

Maserati Quattroporte Executive GT Review

Mon, 14 Aug 2006 12:02:08 +0000

(image) Backseat branding is easy. Porsche? Sports cars. Ford? Sedans. Hummer? Assault rifles. Maserati? Who knows? The company likes to promote a philosophical connection to its distinguished racing heritage. But Maserati's competitive heyday ended on May the twelfth 1957, when the Marquis de Portago’s Ferrari somersaulted into the crowd at Guidizillo, triggering a vicious pan-European anti-motor sports backlash. Since then, Maserati has concentrated on making unreliable sports cars and sporting sedans. These days, the resurgent automaker builds Jaguars.
