Is Chrysler made by Maserati?
Currently, the Maserati car company is owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The company was founded in 1914 when three of the Maserati brothers started an auto workshop in Bologna, Italy. They created the very first Maserati car, the Tipo 26, in 1926. They owned the company until it was sold in 1937.

Is Maserati a poor man’s Ferrari?
The manufacturer has a strong racing background and a strong consumer luxury performance vehicle background. But, for roughly 20 years, the company has been using someone else’s engines, Ferrari’s. That is why Maserati is often referred to as the poor man’s Ferrari.
Is Maserati owned by Ferrari?
Those days are coming to an end. Every Maserati since 2002 has a Ferrari-built engine under its hood. It stems from Fiat handing over control of Maserati to Ferrari in the 1990s. But since then, Maserati has come back into Fiat Chrysler (FCA) control, and Ferrari was spun off in a 2015 IPO.

What is a poor man’s Porsche?
The term ‘poor man’s Porsche’ is commonly used to describe a separate, cheaper brand that offers a comparable experience. But there may be cars made by Porsche that can claim that title as well. But cheap cars are the reason Porsche themselves are still in business today.
Is Maserati dying?
After 12 years in production and some 40,000 cars sold, the Maserati GranTurismo is finally being put out to pasture, giving the company time and space to concentrate on renovations to its Modena plant and development of its next “high-performance sports car”.
Why is Maserati so cheap?
Maseratis have a unique depreciation rate in the luxury sports car market, which is one of the reasons they are so appealing. Even newer Maseratis depreciate quickly, and it’s not uncommon to find one for 60-80 percent off the original $100,000 price.
