Warren Brown and Lou Ann Hammond chat about cars on www.washingtonpost.com December 20, 2013

Ghibli
I don’t know if I spelled that correctly, and I don’t know if it is the best name for the American market (unlike Quattroporte, which sounds so much better than “four door”), but do you know anything about it? One was sitting in the mall the other day, and it looked great and cost only about half as much ($75K) as it’s big brother the QP. It seemed like a lot of Maserati for the money, if there is such a thing. Your thoughts?

I was in Shanghai at the auto show when they unveiled the Ghibli for the first time. They got like 2,500 orders at the show alone. I talked to Harald Wester, the CEO of Maserati, about the Ghibli and Maserati at that show and at the LA auto show. Here are the interviews
