About Maserati Cars

Maserati has completed 104 years of its existence in December 2018. The distinction of establishing Maserati goes to the Maserati brothers, Alfieri, Carlo, Bindo, Ettore and Ernesto. All these five brothers have been in the automobile industry since the beginning of the 20th century. Together, they established the Maserati on 01st December 1914.

Having built racing cars earlier for the Diatto, Alfieri, Bindo, and Ernesto designed the first Maserati car in 1926 after Diatto suspended the production of racing cars. One of the first Maserati racing cars driven by Alfieri himself won the 1926 Targa Florio.   

There is a history behind the selection of the Maserati car logo. The Maserati brothers decided on Neptune’s trident as the logo for their car because Neptune represents strength and vigour. Also, the statue of Neptune belongs to Bologna, the home city of Maserati.

 

Foundation of Maserati

 

Maserati has been manufacturing sports cars since 1926. Many of their cars have gone on to win various races all over the Europe. The death of Alfieri in 1932 did not deter the other brothers from continuing to build racing cars. In 1937, the Maserati brothers sold the company to the Orsi Family. Producing racing cars was Maserati’s passion until the Guidizzolo Tragedy during the 1957 Mille Miglia. Since that fateful day in 1957, Maserati stopped manufacturing racing cars and started concentrating on grand tourers.

The first of such Maserati cars to hit the market was the Maserati 3500GT. Maserati went through a series of acquisitions and takeovers by various companies Fiat and Ferrari. Maserati intensified the production of luxury vehicles with the release of the sixth-generation Maserati Quattroporte in 2013. The Ghibli followed soon thereafter as a direct competition to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the BMW 5 Series. The year 2014 saw the introduction of the Levante and the exit of GranTurismo. The upcoming Maserati car top model is the Alfieri to be joined by the Alfieri convertible. It is not expected in India very soon.  

The Italian cars have unique names. Maserati names its cars after world-famous winds. Ghibli is the name of a hot desert wind. Similarly, the Levante is an Arabic word that implies the rising of the Sun in the East.

 

The Acquisition and the Expansion

 

Maserati has seen a lot of ups and downs in the automobile industry. With the winding up of the original company in 1937, the Adolfo Orsi family took over the management of Maserati by buying the shares from the Maserati brothers. The advent of World War II forced Maserati to stop car manufacturing and switch over to producing components for the Italian war effort. The V16 manufactured for Benito Mussolini failed miserably.

After World War II, Maserati resumed the manufacturing of racing cars until 1957. Since 1957, the company released various luxurious car models such as the 3500GT, the Mistral (2-seater coupe), Quattroporte (saloon) and the Ghibli (coupe).

Citroen took over the ownership of the company in 1968 where Maserati’s role was to manufacture an engine for Citroen’s flagship model, SM. It ultimately led to the introduction of the Quattroporte II with the V-6 engine.

The 1973 oil crisis plunged Maserati into debt with the company going into liquidation in 1975. The local politicians, the trade unions and the mayor of Modena saved the company from closing down by passing the baton to the Italian state-owned GEPI and Alejandro de Tomaso, an Argentine industrialist. This period saw the release of the Maserati Biturbo.

Chrysler bought a 5% share in the company in 1984 to produce luxurious cars for the American market. In the meanwhile, GEPI disinvested its shares to De Tomaso. The year 1989 saw Fiat taking over Maserati with a 51% partnership. In 1993, De Tomaso sold his stake in Maserati to Fiat making it the sole owner of the company. In 1997, Fiat sold 50% of its share in Maserati to Ferrari. The fortunes of the company changed after this deal. Maserati then joined hands with the Alfa Romeo Group (under Fiat) in 2005. The partnership still holds.
