$32,800 - $41,800

The Maserati GranTurismo, a luxury boulevardier that replaced the unimaginatively named Coupé and Spyder, is something of a dark horse on this list, leaning heavily toward comfort and style instead of outright speed. But the rortier and sportier GranTurismo Sport, whose 4.7-liter V8 has been tuned to wail out 454 horsepower, can be had for less than $50,000, making it an interesting choice for those who want Italian sex appeal but can’t quite swing the down payment on a Ferrari. That it’s a comfortable coupe or convertible with real space for four is just a bonus.
