I do drive mine only as a weekend car - now. But first I put 82,000 miles on it (QP, 05) as my daily driver. Not sure if that makes me wealthy or poor; but I probably would be wealthy if I had the money I spent on all those tires.So I really want to buy a maserati and willing to spend ~60k but I'll be driving it everyday. Those of you that own one, do ya'll only drive it as a 'weekend' car?
Do you feel like it's the type of car you can buy and keep forever? (not selling it)Bought this '04 in November, I drive it almost everyday if I'm not in the air, every minute that I can I'm home I take it out, other then a lock module gone bad, ($500), it's been absolutely perfect, knock on wood. Frankly more reliabe then my '99 911 which I loved too, but which also loved the dealership. Many say it's when you don't drive them that you have more problems. You only go around once, other then snow maybe, drive it man!
I have no plans to sell until it's time for a GT and even for that, this car is so much fun I'm in no hurry what so ever. The advice on here about getting it checked thoroughly though is very good and this site was priceless to me in getting a checklist to use before buying.Do you feel like it's the type of car you can buy and keep forever?

Haha yeh I'm planning on driving it and showing her off everyday
If depreciation is a concern even in the slightest, don't buy a Maserati. The cars are AWESOME but the sad truth us that the values on these fall like a greased bowling ball thrown out of an airplane. Great news for anyone looking to buy and bad news for anyone looking to sell (now or in the foreseeable future).so I wouldn't want to depreciate its price so much by adding the miles.
Seriously? Did they average in my $40k a year? LOLI read an article that stated that the average income of a Mas owner is $750k. This would be in wealthy category. I drive mine 9 months out of year rain or shine- so incredibly GREAT to drive! Regardless of wealth, if you can get one, get it.
That average was of new Maserati purchasers and did not include those that purchased preowned cars.I read an article that stated that the average income of a Mas owner is $750k. This would be in wealthy category.
