Maserati was founded on December 1, 1914, in Bologna, by the Maserati brothers: Alfieri, Bindo, Carlo, Ettore, and Ernesto. Today, Maserati is headquartered in Modena, while its owner is none other than the FCA Group, which also has the likes of Jeep, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo as part of its portfolio. Speaking of ownership, Maserati had a rough patch when it comes to who owned the company. In 1937, it was sold to Adolfo Orsi’s family, who brought the brand on a successful course in motorsports. Believe it or not, Citroën took ownership of Maserati in 1968, but after the French firm went bankrupt in 1974, Maserati was put into liquidation. Thanks to an agreement with the Ministry of Industry in Rome, Maserati landed in the backyard of state-owned holding company GEPI and Alejandro de Tomaso, which was named president and CEO of Maserati. But stability was far from attained. In 1993, de Tomaso sold his 51% stake in Maserati to Fiat, which would become the sole owner of Maserati and pumped substantial investments into the company in an attempt to make it both profitable and desirable once again. Come 1997, Fiat sold a 50% share in Maserati to Ferrari and by 1999, the Prancing Horse took full control and turned Maserati into its luxury division. Things wouldn’t last here either, because in 2005, Maserati and Ferrari parted ways, with the latter going under the Fiat Group umbrella, together with Alfa Romeo, under the same form of organisation that we know today.
