As much as it pains me to add a front plate to my car it's the law in Texas and I certainly don't want to give cops another reason to pull me over. I ordered Gcalo's license plate mount which is made for Ferraris to solve the problem. His mount screws into the tow hook on the front so no drilling is required. I did have to modify it somewhat to work with my '04 coupe. The tow hook rod is too short and causes the plate holder to bend when mounted. I solved this by adding a 1 inch stainless steel spacer and a longer machine screw to attach the plate holder to the tow hook rod. The screws that were provided to attach the license plate to the holder were also too long in my opinion so I replaced those with shorter ones as well. He only charges $35 for his mount and an additional spend of $3 modifies it for Maseratis. This is much less than moweraxels solution which is ~$100. If Texas ever repeals the front plate requirement I can easily remove it with no holes drilled in my bumper.
