+Plenty of performance and luxury. Wonderful V8 engine. Space for four.

-Likely to disappoint those seeking a sharp and sportscar-style drive.

On average it achieves 118% of the official MPG figure

Maserati unveiled the new GranTurismo Sport at the Geneva Motor Show. It gets an increase in power along with exterior styling tweaks and will sit between the GranTurismo S and the more hardcore MC Stradale in the range line-up.

The 4.7-litre V8 engine has been upgraded and now develops a maximum 460PS plus it features an innovative new front bumper that's designed to optimise the flow of air for both the engine and brakes. There are also LED daytime running lights while the rear light clusters are now darker.

The inside gets upgraded with redesigned front and rear seats along with a new sports steering wheel. The GranTurismo Sport will go on sale later in 2012 and although prices haven't been announced yet, you're unlikely to see much changed out of £100,000.

Maserati GranTurismo or Porsche 911?

"I have a 61 plate merc E220 CDI coupe 60K to exchange (worth 14K?) and want to spend up to 35K on either a Porsche 911 or a Maserati Granturismo, both available on about '08 plates. What would you recommend?"
The Porsche 911 997, preferably a 2WD Carrera S.
Answered by Honest John

Buying a sports car as an investment

"I have always wanted an Aston Martin and the V8 Vantage is affordable. I want the car to be an investment and to depreciate as little as possible. I have been offered an 18,000 mile 05 model for £43,000. The car will be garaged, kept for many years and will only do 5 - 8k miles per year. Do you think this is a good buy? Also, if you were able to spend £45k on a prestiege or classic car that has seen the worst of its depreciation, is reliable and can be used at weekends and on dry days, what car you would recommend? I have considered a Maserati Gran Turismo, Nissan Skyline GTR and Porsche 911 Targa (993, 996 or 997)."
It's an attractive buy. In a stable economy, cars like this depreciate for 5 years or so, then bottom out, level off and start appreciating again. Ferraris tend to be the best bet and in that price category I'd be looking at a 550 or 575. Go for a 911 aircooled 993 or watercooled 997, not a 996. The trouble is, our economy is anything but stable, we have been living on credit for too long, and we could all have to start living on 50% less.
