  • Here at C/D, each editor drives 200 to 250 cars every year. We see a bunch of BMWs, a plethora of Porsches, and a ton of Toyotas. You get the idea. When it comes to Maseratis, it’s a different story—and one that usually involves us traveling thousands of miles to far-flung locations to get behind the wheel.

    So there was understandably a bit of a buzz at C/D headquarters when Maserati handed over the ingot-like fob to a 2015 Quattroporte GTS, looking understated in its Nero paint and rolling on handsome 20-inch 14-spoke wheels. Up front, Neptune’s trident was set to skewer the lesser traffic that would inevitably cross its path. Anticipation was high.

    So was the sticker. At $143,890, the sole option was proximity entry for $290. The north-of-$140K neighborhood is a swanky one, where the language spoken is predominantly German and populated by the likes of the Audi S8, the BMW 760Li, and the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG. We expect a sedan that speaks Italian to provide more than the mighty performance and luxury of those Teutonic powerhouses—it should offer a flair for the dramatic, with swooping lines that make priests get all sweaty and a yowling engine note that floods the brain with deeply satisfying hits of dopamine.
