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.
