2016 Maserati GranTurismo vs. Its Competition

Maserati GranTurismo Centennial edition
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Maserati GranTurismo's four plush seats and brilliant handling set it apart from most of the luxury sport coupe segment.

The Porsche 911 offers four seats in most models and is a more focused performer, but it lacks the rear-seat space and the passionate styling of the Maserati.

The Jaguar F-Type is only available as a two-seater, though it packs its own heritage-influenced flair for style and luxury.

Ferrari's California is a pricey jump from the GranTurismo, but its folding hardtop and Prancing Horse badge may justify the splurge, and it gets a new twin-turbo V-8 for 2015 to further broaden the performance gap.

Aston Martin's Vantage line offers an upgrade from the Jaguar's prestige, with similar traits, and the V12 Vantage S model makes it the only one of this group to offer a V-12 engine, while the V-8 model is available with a manual transmission.

9.0
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type fleshes out its sportscar credentials this year with a manual transmission and all-wheel drive.
9.0
From the satisfying Carrera to the outrageous GT3 RS, the 2016 Porsche 911 is consistently brilliant, and lives up to the this model line's pedigree in every respect—with some modern comforts spliced right in.
The 2016 Aston Martin Vantage makes great sounds with either the V-8 or V-12 engine, and the short wheelbase helps it deliver sports car performance in a gentlemanly package.
Perhaps the best weekend getaway car of Ferrari's lineup, the 2016 California T combines the brands traditional look and feel with a little more open-air flexibility.
