I have been researching the market for the past few months, have made made a few observations on the sale of cars.
Low mileage (under 2000) that are 3 years old sell in a heartbeat.

Once the car has about 7000 miles, or is a 2005 or newer, they seem to stay on the market forever.

Am I seeing the right? Are the dealers asking too much for the cars with 10,000 miles on them, or is there just no demand for a used Coupe in the USA?

It could be the dealer (reputation, bad salesman, etc), or it could be the price of the cars. The demand is there for the right price.

no just the maserati's, but most few-year-old cars with a relatively low mileage does seem a better deal than one with a higher mileage.
you are correct with your observation - may be the buyers are also worried about service, replacing the clutch or tires around that time.

Hmmm, maybe. I just sold my coupe 2004 with 8100 miles in a matter of 2 weeks (for just about the same price as I bought it last year). I'd guess nearly out of warranty coupes would be in less demand than one which will still carry a 2 year warranty. Also, I've noticed that the inventory is much lower than last year this time.

I think the definition of "the right price" for a buyer is significantly different than for a seller.

I do not think it is dealer related, as is seems to be more wide spread.
It looks like there is no demand for 2 year old cars at an asking price of 65-70K
