While the first Maserati road car was built in 1947, the six-cylinder 1957 Maserati 3500 GT actually marked the transition of the company from a builder of racing cars to a road car manufacturer. Employing an aluminum body over a super light structure, the 3500 GT's design was also used for the V8-powered 5000 GT and set the template for the nature of subsequent Maserati road cars.

However, Maserati reviews of the day indicated that rather than an out and out sports car, the 3500 GT was a grand touring car. While exciting to drive, the GT was also comfortable and practical for daily use.

Going into the 1960s, Maserati offered a string of beautiful, fast, and luxurious cars with bodies by two of the most noted automotive stylists of the time, Vignale and Frua. For 1964, Vignale did the Maserati Sebring, while Frua designed the Mistral Coupe and Spider. Frua also did the first Maserati four-door sedan, the 1963 Quattroporte. The company’s fabulous Ghibli coupe was brought to market in 1967, with the convertible version of the Maserati automobile appearing in 1969. The 1970s saw the launch of the first mid-engine Maserati models, Bora and Merak, as well as the stunningly beautiful front-engine Maserati Khamsin.

Today’s Maserati lineup straddles the line between exotic and premium mainstream, with a collection of grand touring coupes, convertibles, and a posh luxury sedan in the form of the Quattroporte. The Maserati reviews here on the Autobytel Website reflect the illustrious history of this noted brand while thoroughly examining the cars the brand offers today.
