Hello all, I'm a newbie here. I'm a potential Gransport owner. I love the whole package. In doing a search on the web about the car I ran across this site. Now I'd love to add it to my little collection, but something has to go. I have a 1989 328GTB with only 3000 miles on it. The car is immaculate. What I love most about the 328 is its mix of old and new world Ferrari. Although it hasn't been driven much, I've never had a problem with it, it being a last year 89 model it was as refined as you could get it. While it doesn't have the power of most modern sports cars not many can touch it when it comes to its terrific road feel. Even its no power steering is great, raw and refined at the same time, a perfect match.

Now I'm a big fan of the 360 Stradale, but the Gransport is a beautiful and similar concept for 100 grand less. Will it be the classic the 328 is, probably not, will it be solid investment like the 328 is, probably not, will be happy with it as much as the 328, thats unknown, but just reading about the Gransport, I'm very excited about how Maserati packaged this car. Have you heard the sound of it on the maseratigransport.com website? If you haven't, check it out, its sounds like the Trofeo Challenge car.

Anyway, thats the boat I'm in, I'm a pretty lucky guy so I guess in the end I win no matter what decision I make. I look forward to being a part of the message board in the future as more Gransport news starts to trickle in.

Thanks for all your feedback. I don't necessarily agree that my 328 is of poor mechanical quality. After 15 years of the 308/328 model, my 1989 model was perfected. Now I can't speak on behalf of all 328 owners, but from my personal experience it has been rock solid. No problems besides regular maintanance.

Of course no car is an investment outside of the incredibly rare models, but I know I can pretty much get back for the 328 what I paid for it. I know the Gransport will lose me $20,000-$30,000 a few years down the road. Its only money right :wink:

I know the Gransport is obviously more modern and perhaps more of a daily driver, but what I want most out of it is a raw, visceral feel. I think that was Maserati's intention too. Looking forward to driving one soon :D
