If you're suspicious of four-door sports cars, take a good look at Maserati's Quattroporte. In the five years since its reintroduction, the Pininfarina-sculpted masterpiece has all but single-handedly rescued Maserati from extinction. And now it's fiercer still, with a grille that resembles the mouth of a whale shark and headlights and taillights accented with archipelagos of LEDs. As a final sweetener, the Italian carmaker plans to offer the same high-performance S edition it unveiled on the GranTurismo, swapping out the standard 4.2-liter V8 for a 4.7-liter version that boosts the horsepower from 400 to 430. It's the engine Fiat developed for its small-batch Alfa Romeo 8C super-car, but—at $120,000 for the standard and $130,000 for the S—you can actually score one of these. Ian Daly
