I can’t see a stand alone model for just Alfa with RWD unless they have found a very easy and cost effective way to make the new 200 architecture RWD. All very unlikely I think. It just will not make financial sense.

My comment on Arese was about quality not quantity. Arese was the best Alfa plant for engine production they had.

Considering all the promises and all the delays over the past years, it’d be great to see this scheme come true.

@Tom Tanner The production capacity should be sufficient without Arese, that won’t be a problem normally. :-)

@Alfetta159 We, too, had hoped for those coupes you’re talking about. Perhaps they are planned for after 2016. With this scheme, it’ll all be 4-5-doors or two-seaters.

But hey, once again, this is still great news! Let’s cross our fingers and see it turn into reality! :-)

So that’s fine. The two sports cars are the most attractive to me, but I would also like to see coupes derived from the Mito, Giulietta and Giulia. Maybe they can be made at the Bertone plant?

Now lock in the plan and go with it. Stop changing your mind MR. M. I am on Alfa’s side. I want them to succeed. This plan if done correctly will be a new
begining for Alfa Romeo and FIAT. Maserati seems to also be headed in the right direction with the very nice new models. One note is that Maserati and Alfa should not produce the same cars with each others badges. I.E. dont turn into each others main competition in the segement, That is hard not to do but they need to be careful. also FIAT should only rely on Italian production for the TOP END Alfa’s and almost all engine production in my opinion. To bad they shut down Arese!!!They could use that factory and its workers now.
