The Maserati GranTurismo's four plush seats and brilliant handling make it a rare bird in the luxury sport coupe segment.
The Jaguar XK, for example, is only available as a two-seater, though it packs its own British flair for style and luxury; it's the most logical alternative to the GranTurismo.
The Porsche 911 offers four seats and even more inspired performance, but lacks the rear-seat space and the passionate styling of the Maserati.
Ferrari's California is a pricey jump from the GranTurismo, but its folding hardtop and Prancing Horse badge may justify the splurge.
Aston Martin's Vantage line offers an upgrade from the Jaguar's prestige, with similar traits, and a new V12 Vantage S model for the 2014 model year makes it the only one of this group to offer a V-12 engine.
