The Maserati Coupe GT was the car that will forever be known as Maserati’s savoir. Coming off a bad marriage with DeTomaso in the early 1990s, Fiat’s takeover of the marque did wonders for the brand and with its return to the US in 2002, expanded its sales reach like never before. Now, a decade on, Maserati is well into its second and third generation models, leaving cars like this Coupe GT behind as affordable modern classics.

Sure, a Maserati like this is a bargain considering its original MSRP, but are they easy to live with? True, you will have to budget out a bit more in maintenance, especially when it comes to clutch replacements for the automated manual gearbox. But those who I’ve spoken to who own Coupe GTs and Spyders say they aren’t as bad as you would think, many of them using them as daily drivers. So if the thought of a pre-owned M3 or Porsche may leave you a bit non-plussed, then it might be time to sample something with a bit of Italian flair.
