Who makes Maserati?
The Italian brand Maserati has been property of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (and its predecessor Fiat) for over 23 years. Established in 1914, Maserati was an independent company for several decades. It gained popularity all around the world for its luxury specialty and racing cars. In 1993, however, Fiat took control of the company. Several years later Fiat sold Maserati to its long-term rival Ferrari, Ferrari itself being the property of Fiat.
Where is Maserati made?
Maserati has a reputation of a high-end car brand, and its parent company, FCA Italy, does a lot to preserve this image. That’s why it’s hardly a surprise that all the Maserati manufacturing plants are located in Italy. The oldest one, established in 1939, is Stabilimento Mirafiori in Turin. In addition to Maserati Levante, it also manufactures Alfa Romeo MiTo.
Another very old factory, which was opened in 1940, is located in Modena. Here, the GranTurismo and the GranCabrio are made. Each employee spends at least 28 minutes working at one car. So, only 35 cars are made daily. The factory in Grugliasco makes the Quattroporte and the Ghibli models.
We should point out that components are also manufactured in Maranello and Cuneo. Although Maserati has headquarters not only in Italy, but in the US, too, it never produces its cars anywhere outside Italy.
