The word “Maserati” comes from the Italian word “mazerati,” which refers to the brand’s premium automobiles. The firm was founded on December 1, 1914 in Bologna, Italy; however, its current offices are located in Modena, and a trident serves as the company’s insignia. Since 1993, the business has been under the ownership of FIAT Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), as well as FCA’s Italian forerunner, FIAT S.p.A. In the beginning, Maserati was closely connected to Ferrari. Due to aggressive sales goals and new model introductions, Maserati set a new record of over 3,000 vehicles sold in a single month in May of 2014. As a result of this, they increased manufacturing of the Quattroporte as well as the Ghibli model. Maserati’s lineup includes, in addition to the Ghibli and the Quattroporte, the GranTurismo, the GranTurismo Convertible, and the Maserati Levante (the first ever Maserati SUV). Maserati has decided to limit its annual manufacturing to 75,000 automobiles around the globe.
