What defines lifestyle? Is it the brand of clothes you wear? Is it where you take your annual family vacation? Is it your preference for wood-fired rib eye over sous-vide Chilean sea bass? At Faulkner Maserati Willow Grove, we believe lifestyle is less about what you do rather than how you like to do it.
This certainly is true when it comes to driving. Sitting atop the luxury performance class, Maserati and Porsche continue to vie for European supremacy. The only question you really have to ask: Which brand best fits your unique lifestyle?
To find the answer, continue reading our brief Maserati vs. Porsche comparison, and contact us with any questions!
Freedom is the ability to control one’s own destiny. It means carving out your own niche, liberated from the will of the crowd. That’s why Maserati and Porsche have each made a concerted effort to diversify their lineups. Now, you don’t have to worry about fitting into a box—you can burst out of it.
From the supercharged Maserati Gran Turismo Sport, showstopping Maserati Quattroporte to the adventurous Maserati Levante, there’s a vehicle for every mood and season. In fact, each of Maserati’s five vehicles are equipped with a Ferrari engine, supplying you with a Formula 1 experience without the flight to Monza, Italy.
Drivers who want an exciting sports car that’s also appropriate for daily living should step behind the wheel of a new Maserati Ghibli. In fact, in true Sprezzatura style, all Maserati models manage to balance artisan perfection with disarming nonchalance.
By comparison, Porsche exudes the German desire to push the limits with exacting certitude. Each one of Porsche’s six vehicles looks about as fast they move. While this might appeal to drivers with oil surging through their veins, it ends up limiting those who view luxury as more than what goes under the hood.
In fact, when Porsche does try to throw a bone to casual drivers via its turbo 4-cylinder Porsche Macan SUV, the results feel underwhelming. Sometimes, having less can means getting more—something Maserati proves well.
Since we’re on the topic of engineering, let’s compare how two of their most popular sedan models match up on the line: the Maserati Quattroporte and the Porsche Panamera.
Each sedan comes standard with its own turbo V6 engine with standard rear-wheel drive (RWD). Quattroporte drivers who want extra road-gripping ability can opt for the all-wheel drive (AWD) setup. From here, the differences are laid bare:
|Model||Maserati Quattroporte S||Porsche Panamera|
|Standard Engine||3.0L Twin-Turbo
|Max Speed||179 MPH||164 MPH|
|Horsepower/Torque||424 HP/428 lb-ft||330 HP/330 lb-ft|
When you decide to buy a new suit, which tailor do you pick? The German or the Italian? Sure, the German tailor will hand-sew an outfit that perfectly fits your body and lasts for many years.
On the other hand, the Italian tailor will hand-sew a suit that not only looks and feels incredible but that also manages to amplify your best features. That’s the difference when it comes to choosing Maserati vs. Porsche.
From the available Pieno Fiore natural leather upholstery and carbon fiber accents down to the optional executive rear seating packages, Maserati blends racing spirit with Old-World sophistication like no other brand on the market.
