Bentley Boy I am now 76 but in a previous life I was the senior partner of a substantial firm of Chartered Accountants. I have always been a petrol head, although I drove a BMW 7 for work so as not to excite the clients, but in the garage at home I had a succession of Daimler, Ferrari Bentley and a Maserati.I recently acquired 2017 QP diesel and am thoroughly enjoying it. Not as quick as some of my previous models but MPG and road holding are ample compensation and I probably don't drive as fast as I used to!

you never leave the beloved Corps, Semper Fi!

timado404 52 years old, to date.
Baseball was my life from a very early age, poured everything I had into it and it paid me back tenfold!!!
Went to college on a "full ride" division 1 baseball scholarship, was fortunate enough to be taken in the first round of the baseball amateur draft after my sophomore year. Only made it to Triple A level but I played there for 6 seasons before injury cut me down. Luckily, that was plenty good enough to set me up for life so I've never had a "9 to 5."
These days I volunteer between the Boys and Girls Club, Points of Light Foundation, and Toys for Tots

DanielP I will be 26 in July. I have been working at a Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Maserati dealership for some time and moved up to Internet Sales Manager and I was now Luckily able to purchase one under the employee purchase program Maserati has. I am now a proud driver of a 2017 Quattroporte. For me the key was focus, once I stopped wasting time with little distractions like tinder, video games, or social media for personal reasons I started to get results by adopting my job as part of my whole life.

I just got my 2017 Maserati Quattroporte S Q4 Gransport and I am loving it (Just went from a Hyundai Sonata to this -_-, I know)

Stealthawd I will be turning 50 in March. I was one of the owners of a finance business that we built starting in the early 2000's and managed to be profitable thru the recession. We were purchased by a bank in 2014. I was lucky in that I got paid out on my equity with the purchase and I was also kept on as the COO of the bank. Its totally different experience being an entreprenure working in an independently owned company and now being an executive employee of a bank. Looking at starting a 2nd career teaching - that is on the horizon.

I just purchased a 2014 GT-Sport which I will be picking up on Saturday. I previously leased a 2014 Ghibli SQ4 as well - which was my first experience with Maserati. The GT is amazing in every way and totally different from the Ghibli - can't wait to drive her!

By 30 I would like to own several businesses and properties. Right now I own a Maserati GT and live comfortably. All in due time I guess!
This is me almost 3 years ago, a couple days after turning 22. Lost the password to that account. At 21 I bought my first Maserati with my own money, owned it for a year (deeply regret selling it, plus lost so much $$ on it). I'm proud of myself for having accomplished that...

Unfortunately, I'm almost 25 and haven't saved any money. Spent it all on a greedy girlfriend, expensive lifestyle and going out to eat A LOT. Like almost every day. Even though I've made half a mill in the last 3 years.. How does one spend so much being so young with no kids? Really bad financing, constantly living paycheck to paycheck. Covering all the bills for another person. A highrise apartment. Taking forever to payoff a relatively small amount of credit debt (~$6k) that I didn't care about due to high cash flow..

I should had invested in Tesla stock or BTC/ETH... but I learned. I knew about these 3 markets very long before most people and missed the "coming". Lesson learned.

Anyways. I no longer have a girlfriend (thankfully!) and have forced myself to live on a frugal budget. No going out to eat at all, ever. Career wise I'm doing good, in the same field/industry but a higher position. I still have my entrepreneur aspirations and hope to act on it one day soon!

I still have my A7 which I adore. It's no Maserati though! Maybe one day I'll buy that 599 hah..

It will be an early Christmas present!

The car is Bordeaux Pontevecchio Metallic with Cuoio interior. It's also has a CPO warranty so I'm not too concerned about purchasing it as a pre-owned car. I uploaded some pics and I hope they're no too big!
Love it! I need to make sure my GF doesn't see this thread and get any funny ideas. Awesome gift/surprise. And truthfully my Granturismo (4.7) has been beyond reliable. I got it with 26k miles on the clock .... i've put another 21k miles on it over the past two years .... just regular maintenance really. couldn't be happier
