Today Maserati models include the Quattroporte sedan and the more sporty GranTurismo. Its MC12 racing coup� that packs a 630 horse power V12. Ferrari and Fiat each bought 50% of an ailing Maserati in 1997. Ferrari took over complete ownership in 1999 and brought in cash and new management. Although not yet profitable, Maserati's fortunes seem to be improving. The brand has been reintroduced to the US market. Ferrari sold Maserati back to Fiat S.p.A. in 2005. The following year Fiat held a controlling stake in Ferrari, as well.
