What is a Maserati GranTurismo?

First introduced for the 2008 model year, the sporty and luxurious GranTurismo coupe and convertible enjoyed a long production run that ended in November 2019. Over that period, competitors surpassed it in performance and technology, but few topped it in aesthetics. To be sure, it looks as wonderful now as it did when it was first introduced.

How Fast is a Maserati GranTurismo?

A Ferrari-built V-8 lives under the GranTurismo's long, sloping hood. Over the vehicle's production run, that powerplant was enlarged and massaged for more performance. At its 2008 introduction, a 4.2-liter V-8 made 400 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. As tested by MotorTrend, that engine provided a 4.9-second 0-60 mph acceleration time. In its final, ultimate form, the GranTurismo featured a 4.7-liter V-8 good for 454 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque, which cut 0-60 mph acceleration to a MotorTrend-tested 4.6 seconds. Top speed as claimed by Maserati was 186 mph. Regardless of power output, a melodic exhaust note was always part of the GranTurismo experience.

Is the GranTurismo Still Available?

As this is written early in 2020, you may be able to find new 2018 or 2019 models on dealer lots, but production on the outgoing car ended in November 2019.

Does Maserati Make a Convertible?

The Maserati GranTurismo was available as a convertible. At different times it was called the GranTurismo Convertible, GT Convertible, or GranCabrio, but it always featured the same fabric folding top and 2+2 seating arrangement. Folding the roof away was a surefire way to better listen to that sonorous V-8 engine music.

What Was the GranTurismo Like to Drive?

Sexy looks and sweet sounds gave the Gran Turismo appeal, but it never had the sharp-edged reflexes or rib-bending speed of a true supercar. Early examples could be coaxed away from understeer and into balanced grip, but still felt underpowered. Later versions used a bigger engine that solved the output problem, yet a floaty suspension as well as relaxed steering and soft brakes kept the car from serving as a track carver—this Maserati was more of a grand-tourer than a supercar.

What Replaces the Maserati GranTurismo?

The GranTurismo may have ended production, but Maserati isn't done with the sporty luxury coupe game. The engineers in Modena are readying a successor, but the question remains when it'll show its pretty face. Previewed by the 2014 Maserati Alfieri concept, rumors indicate that plans for the car's electrification have been scaled back. Nonetheless, the brand revealed the name and some teaser shots of its upcoming mid-engine sports car (check out coverage of the MC20 from our friends at Automobile). We're confident there will be a Maserati GranTurismo replacement, but what form it'll take and when it'll be revealed are still to be determined.
