The Maserati Barchetta was a mid-engined, no-door 2-seat Le Mans-style supercar, in the spirit of the 350 and 450S, that was designed as a way to inject much needed excitement and enthusiasm for the carmake whose reputation had been badly ruined by years of producing notoriously unreliable products,[1] eventually culminating in Maserati's withdrawal from the North American market and whose then-current offerings (the Biturbos, jointly developed with the Chrysler TC) were, more or less, derided as bland and uninspiring.
