Car With Trident Logo

Trident I’m unsure of the history of the Trident Sports Cars logo…the company itself has been one of those on again, off again companies throughout the past century.  At one point making cars, at the next, out of business.  The logo appears to be a stylized version of a trident…they couldn’t make it too trident-like as that might be confused with Maserati! Wikipedia has a nice history of the Trident car company, click here to read it.

Inspiration for a name and logo can come from careful consumer research, legal loopholes or, in some cases, by looking at the surrounding environment. The brothers took inspiration for their company’s trident logo from the statue of Neptune in the central square of Bologna, Italy, where Maserati was originally headquartered. The trident with Maserati script below was sketched by Mario, an artist, who also happened to be the only Maserati brother never actively involved in the design or engineering of cars.

The trident logo of the Maserati car company is based on the Fountain of Neptune in Bologna’s Piazza Maggiore. In 1920, one of the Maserati brothers, artist Mario, used this symbol in the logo at the suggestion of family friend Marquis Diego de Sterlich. It was considered particularly appropriate for the sports car company due to fact that Neptune represents strength and vigour; additionally the statue is a characteristic symbol of the company’s original home city.

There are several versions regarding the creator of the logo. According to one of the versions one of the brothers named Mario was not really passionate about car development and production. He did not want to be involved in automotive industry and proved to be quite a talented artist. They say that he was the one to design Maserati logo based on world’s famous Neptune’s statue located at Piazza Maggiore, Bologna, Italy. The logo was first introduced in 1926 when the brothers produced their first Tipo 26 model.

Maserati History Maserati is an Italian premium car manufacturer specializing in ultra-luxury vehicles. Owned by sports car group Alfa Romeo and Ferrari, Maserati models place an emphasis on luxury and sporty design, and Maserati prices begin above $100,000. With years of experience in racing cars, Alfieri Maserati opened up shop along with his brothers in Bologna, Italy, in 1914. Their intent was to prepare racecars for Isotta Fraschini and others, but the timing dictated that they make spark plugs for the war effort. It wasn’t until 1926 that they produced the first all-Maserati car, the Tipo 26. The next decade brought the Maserati brothers many wins around the globe in their custom-built racecars, but also included the death of Alfieri in 1932. By 1937, the surviving brothers sold their stake in the company to the Orsi family. Maserati didn’t start building road cars until the A6 coupe, produced from 1947-’57. And it wasn’t until 1966, with the introduction of the sleek Giugiaro-styled Ghibli, that Maserati fielded a truly powerful and sexy Italian sports car. The Maserati Quattroporte remains one of the most elegant four-door sedans in their high=performance automobile stable. Today, after a brief hiatus in the U.S. market, Maserati has regained its reputation as a maker of high-performance exotics that, though costly, are bargains when compared to much of the competition.

When it comes to the origin of an iconic logo, the same car company can sometimes have two variations of the same story. That holds true with , and the truth behind the German sports car manufacturer’s eye-catching emblem. According to a spokesperson with Porsche Cars North America, an extremely influential automobile distributor, Max Hoffman, met with Ferry Porsche in a New York City restaurant in 1951. The discussion moved on to Hoffman’s belief that Porsche needed a powerful logo, something distinctive and elegant. A rough sketch was made then and there, on a dinner napkin.
