Maserati Company Description:
Officine Alfieri Maserati was founded on 1 December 1914 in Bologna, Italy. The company's headquarters are now in Modena. In 2005, as a consequence of the termination of the agreement between Fiat and General Motors under which GM may have been obliged to buy Fiat's car division, Maserati was separated from Ferrari and brought back under Fiat's full control. In the second quarter of 2007 Maserati made profit for the first time in the 17 years under the Fiat Group ownership. Maserati has played a consistently important role in the history of sports car culture and its development.
