Nice! I think the rear end especially the rear lights/chrome strip seem a little generic but who cares. The strong side profile and updated front end look amazing. Interior is classy too.

It seems those old "renders" were actually genuine!

kinda like the old rear, this one looks a little lexus-y, but still a looker. if the warranty is extended or its more reliable, id certainly get it.

*Very* impressed with the outcome!!

Looks much better than the previous generation.

The rear end finally came together nicely and no longer looks like a retirement vehicle.


Maserati is headed in the right direction!


Between the Panamera, Rapide, and Quattroporte, Maserati has the best 'overall' package.

The Panamera is probably the most 'reliable' of the 3.


I can't wait to see how the 'Sport' models of this new Quattroporte will look.

I like the actual model better. I think it has lost a bit of the sportyness. Now it looks les like a sport car and more like a big limo.
Interior looks good, the shifter reminds me the BMW shifter of the sport auto.

I love the refresh! I've always been a fan of the looks and sound of the Maserati. How does it hold up in the reliability department though?

Lol. I'm 19... There are 3 or 4 ferraris in my immediate family, plus a slew of other exotics above and beyond the cost of a Quattroporte. This is a baby compared to those

Sure, I personally can't afford it on my own merit, but hopefully in the near future a Maserati will be on the lower end of what I am looking to purchase.

Actually he was quoting a line from the fast and the furious (1. movie).

He quoted it wrong then... I'm assuming it was the part when they were racing the ferrari along PCH... It's just "more than you can afford pal. Ferrari"
And it was way out of context here... so I guess I jumped a bit too quick, but the quote doesn't really make sense in this context...
