Topsy, not Turvy.
The 2014 Chevrolet SS evokes the era of full-size Chevys with muscular V-8s.
Looks like an italian solstice exige from the movie cars.
For that kind of money, I'd by a new Vette.
Love everything except the mirrors, why are they so huge and why are they so low on the door??
I'm sorry, but the lack of a true manual transmission in a "pure" sports car is a major turn off. Alfa talks about all the weight savings, well the lack of a manual probably increased the weight of the vehicle by 100-150 lbs.
Ugly, only a mother could love this thing......
Would be nicer if it had a larger engine, less rev, more torque, more room inside and proper dealer distribution. It is still an Italian car. No service, no parts, no repairs anywhere, except at Tony's Alfa Romeo Garage, when and if it is open.
NIce but to remake Alfa as a significant brand they need to come up with an Italian -flavoured, cheaper 3 series competitor.
This is probably going to be a fun car to drive, but there is nothing about it that makes me want to buy it. I can't forget the old Alfa days and I don't find the looks of this car to be any thing special. I pass.
Tiene un parecido al lotus elise
Welcome back Alfa Romeo! I've owned two of these over the years. Looking forward to this one. It will be a very specialized machine. No trips to Costco, no long road trips if a female is included, not enough luggage space. Unless you live near great driving roads you're not likely to enjoy this cars full potential. Guess many will sell for prestige purposes, driving them in suburbs and to the mall. I like the weird headlights. they look like a spiders eyes, sort of a jumping spider. Strange and very different.
Return of the Lotus Exige bit without a proper gearbox.
Not real keen on the center nose, butI love the flanks.
Cool toy, but the C7 is in a whole other world of performance and technology for the same money.
"Let's call it 2200 pounds at the curb in the U.S."
Are you interested in offering odds that it will be less than 2300? I would surely scrounge up a little coin to place such a wager.
Wow. This is NOT your father's Alfa! Sweeeeeet! *drools*
ITALIAN STYLE..as always
cant wait for it here if it ever makes it...
...got tired with the 'fish & chips' Lotus Elise and wants some hot & spicy Ayy-talian sausage!
My next car.
Decision to bring it without power steering is the most retarded thing. They could have special track addition for that. Just because of that they will be missing most of the sales. Who ever did it doesn't know us market and customer base appeal for this car!
Looks good, but...
Looks good! Great curves!
Look like swift dizzer
It looks good.thou
Whts with the mag. Come on fiat
looks like a hyundai
The latest news is that it will finally be imported and available through Maserati dealers next spring.
Looks like a lotus elise with the front of alfa romeo "italian crap"
Very nice indeed but why not just go for the real red head. Ferrari
I like it
@martind431 Who are you talking about?
@Gyula Bognar Jr
Agreed. First of all quality will be questionable. Second, zero support for service. Good luck trying to locate some one to do a simple adjustment. I think they just plan on selling 1,000 a year to collectors or wannabe collectors who won't drive it out of some storage space for 25 years.
Sad to say, manuals are dying a rapid death. I never in my life thought people would be so lazy as to opt for non-manual transmissions. I think it is a sign of the age that everyone is yacking on the bloody phone, so no time to move their left foot or actually use their right arm for anything other than a resting spot for that all important cell phone. Really disgusting. I know everyone claims that the new automatic "manuals" go faster to 60, but that isn't the point. It is all about drive involvement. Drove a 2013 VW GTI Driver's Edition a few days ago and was so stunned to find a properly kitted snappy car with manual tranny, great clutch work and smooth shifting, plus proper aluminum pedal covers. Too bad all the other makers are abandoning real involvement by the droves. I will never forgive Nissan for going almost totally to CV's. UGH.
@Chris Story Agreed. While this is a nifty lookin' little machine, I can't imagine paying over $50k for it, when I can get either A) a C7 that has nearly twice the ponies, or B) A Subaru BRZ that has similar power and handling, more reliability, and is about $20k less. But I guess we're being practical, and this car probably wouldn't be for those kind o' folks.
@Nexhat A Xhelili
Yes, nice to look at. Wonder who will service it. And where will parts be and how long before they arrive. And how many zillions of dollars will a headlight cost? There are many reasons why they left the US market many years ago....quality was a major problem.
@Erick Ople Because some folks want to buy an entry level home for the difference in price between the 4c and the least expensive Ferrari?
@Garrett Fricke @martind431 Da car, da car.......................
@evadtheslayer @Gyula Bognar Jr Thank you. There are good reasons, why the Italian, French, Brit cars are not on the US market. We demand good service and support and we got a plethora of very dependable, excellent US, Japanese and German cars on the market, with good service and dealer network as a strong competition. The French, the Italians and the Brits were not able to assimilate into the US market and the European practice of selling, servicing and supporting the cars designed for their own markets did not work here profitably. Trust is difficult to build, much more difficult to restore. Good luck to Alfa Romeo and the 4C, but so far the name is the only desirable and nice part in it.
