Maserati Quattroporte – Striving to be different

Maserati Quattroporte – Striving to be different

What do Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Maserati have in common? They are all Italian luxury car marques. With that said, the last one stands a bit away from the bunch. That couldn’t be more obvious with the latest Maserati Quattroporte model.

While both Ferrari and Lamborghini fight for the title of the most exotic sports car, Maserati takes a different route. In this post, we will see why “luxury” does not always mean the same thing for all cars.

Why do some people refer to Maserati as a poor man’s Ferrari?

Who likes living in the shadow of a much more famous brand? Whatever they do, they will always be compared to that “number one”. Unless… they change the game!

Undoubtedly, Maserati has gone through its fair share of identity crises in the past. For a long while, both Ferrari and Maserati were Fiat Chrysler subsidiaries, and they still share many things to this day. That naturally leads some people to conclude that if you want to save up on a Ferrari, you better go for Maserati. Only that’s not how it works.

Since the late 2000s, Maserati has been positioning itself not as a competitor to the other supercar brands, but as the more comfortable alternative. Craving speed and power? Go for a Lambo (or Ferrari). Want a nice long ride, comfort, and the ability to still push that pedal hard? Can’t beat a Maserati!

Take the Quattroporte for example. It still has that cozy sedan spirit, but it can bite, too. On top of that, it is not just a car to show off, but one that can actually serve a family. That makes it a smarter choice in many situations. Does it deliver though?

Is Maserati Quattroporte a good car?

Maserati Quattroporte

All Italian cars have suffered from bad reputation in the past. There’s a saying that Italians design amazing cars, but cannot build them afterward. Is that the case with Maserati Quattroporte?

Plenty of interesting vehicles have passed through our luxury auto transport services. Of course, this does not give us a perspective on their quality, but we can see how much their owners cherish them. Plus, we can confirm straight away that the Quattroporte has one of the best designs out there – interior too!

Now, it would be dishonest to say that Maserati is famous for reliable cars. However, if you do your research, you would notice that the Quattroporte stands above the rest. Compared to its German competition, it provides a more distinctive feel with similar reliability. Мany also say that it beats Mercedes-Benz S-Class in comfort, which means a lot!

To answer the question though – it can be a good car for the right person. For people who want unique luxury and speed to match without sacrificing the smooth ride, the Quattroporte is indeed a good choice. Great even! We just have to take into account that its target market remains very small.

How successful is Maserati Quattroporte?

This may come as a surprise, but the model has almost 60 years to its name. Considering how luxury brands go through new models one after the other, this goes to show that Maserati cares about consistency.

Fun fact: its name translates as “four doors”. Because of that, it has always had a very particular niche – that of a sports sedan. The very first generation had a V8 engine from the get-go with its not-too-shabby horsepower of 260. Though now famous for its aesthetics, the Quattroporte was not that beautiful at first. After its first generation, it wasn’t until the 5th one that folks started to care about it.

With all that said, Maserati has always been on the lower number of sales. For example, Quattroporte’s third generation had only 2,155 units made, and the fourth went up to 2,400. Even with its fairly popular fifth generation, there were only 25,000 cars sold.

As you can see, as far as big numbers go, the model is not among the most popular. Even among luxury brands, Maserati remains fairly niche to call it an obvious success. But you know what? Its fanbase prefers it that way!

What makes Maserati Quattroporte different from other luxury cars?

If you compare the prices of Italian luxury cars, Maserati Quattroporte may actually seem affordable. It falls within the same price range as BMW’s and Mercedes’s top offers. Yet when people see the Maserati brand, they put it at least a tier higher, maybe even more!

The marque has done an amazing thing – they have positioned themselves as an exotic choice, without having the ultra-expensive price tag. There is even a niche market for used Quattroporte units that cost even less. As some say, you can enjoy all the luxury benefits without having to pay the luxury tax.

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
