The Chrysler TC by Maserati was introduced at the 1986 Los Angeles Auto Show, ostensibly to become a 1987 model, the TC (Turbo Convertible, according to the dealer window sticker) actually didn’t appear until the 1989 model year. The concept for this luxury two-seat convertible dated back to 1984, when Chrysler bought 15.6 percent of Maserati the majority of the remaining stake belonging to De Tomaso Industries with the idea of having Maserati produce a small number of luxury cars for the Detroit automaker. 1990 was the second year of TC production only 1,900 units were built by Officine Alfieri Maserati S.p.A. in Milan. With the removable hardtop included, the no-options sticker price was $35,000, or $67,000 in today’s dollars. These special vehicles highlighted an international flare in its design, execution and construction. They perform well, and remain wonderfully attractive. The TC America Club is an active body of enthusiasts. Their events and newsletters will help the vehicle remain supported.
