The mystery has been solved: Alfa Romeo’s big Geneva Motor Show debut is the 4C Spider, a study previewing the drop-top version of the 4C coupé, scheduled for production for the beginning of 2015.

Alfa Rumored to Bring 4C Spider Concept to Geneva

If we’re to believe a recent report from Italy, the updated Quadrifoglio Verde versions of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and MiTo won’t be the only new models on display at the Italian carmaker’s Geneva Motor Show stand. According to the 0-100 website, Alfa Romeo’s main attraction will be the 4C Spider in concept car form.

Would a Crossover-Flavored Alfa Romeo Giulietta Make Sense?

At this stage, just about any addition to Alfa Romeo's stripped-out range would bring a welcome sigh of relief to the brand's dealers who have been trying to make ends meet with just two core models, the MiTo and Giulietta, plus a showpiece car in the guise of the limited run 4C, but would a Giulietta with off-road styling cues have any chance of success?

Alfa Romeo Endorses Touring Superleggera to Build Disco Volante [95 Photos & Videos]


Read more

One of the most impressive looking sports car concepts of recent years - and certainly of any bearing the famous emblem of the House of Visconti, the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante by Italian coachbuilder Touring Superleggera, will be produced in an extremely limited number of examples, after receiving an official endorsement from Alfa Romeo.

If you are aware of the fact that the Disco Volante, which was introduced as a concept in 2012, is built on the underpinnings of the now discontinued Alfa Romeo 8c Competizione, you'll surely be wondering where will Touring Superleggera get the donor cars from.

Another Alfa Romeo Design Study for a Sports Coupe

In recent years, we have seen more actual concepts and projects for Alfa Romeo cars coming out from independent design studios and coachbuilders like Pininfarina and Carrozzeria Touring, than we have from the Italian automaker itself, which says a lot about the financial decline of the once successful Milanese brand, but also its enduring popularity among auto aficionados.

Alfa Romeo Stradale Design Concept Imagined as an 8C Competizione Replacement


Read more

Few, if any, Alfa Romeo models of recent times, have rekindled a passion for the Italian brand as much as the 8C Competizione, which was produced in coupe form from 2007 to 2009 and as a roadster from 2008 to 2010 in just 500 examples each.

Even though the 8C Competizione was built on Maserati gear (platform and engine) and assembled at the Maserati factory in Modena, Italy, its unique and exotic looks were enough to get the hearts of Alfa Romeo fans in racing mode. That said, attempting to design a successor isn't the easiest task for any designer, professional or not, but it's one that Aurelio Argentieri is willing to take on.

Video Walkaround of IED's Alfa Romeo Gloria Sports Sedan

If we are to believe the design minds at the Istituto Europeo di Design of Turin (IED Turin for short), the Gloria concept is everything that North American and Asian consumers want from a modern Alfa Romeo sports sedan.

We'll leave that for you to decide after you take a look at the following walk-around video of the Gloria concept shot from IED Turin's Geneva Motor Show booth, courtesy of AutoMotorunSport magazine.

As far as static concept cars go, there is only one thing they have to do, and do well: look good and attract attention, in order to consolidate a particular brand's image.

One such example is the Instituto Europeo Di Design or IED-designed Alfa Romeo Gloria Concept, which was revealed today at the Geneva Motor Show. It shows a possible future styling direction for a sleek sedan with coupe-inspired lines.

Even though Alfa Romeo been heavily neglected over the years, it continues to have a special place in the heart of car enthusiasts as well as people already working (Ferdinand Piech, we're looking at you) or aspiring to work, in the auto industry.

There's something about Alfa's past, which blends a rich racing heritage with some of the most beautiful and, arguably, better handling production cars ever made. Throw in the fact that, for the most part and unlike other Italian sports car makers, its vehicles were/are affordable to the masses, and you can see why its hard to turn a blind eye to the brand.

Designer Dreams of Alfa Romeo 6C Sports Coupe Concept to Rival Mustangs and Stingrays

Alfa Romeo's comeback with the 4C coupe at the Geneva Motor Show next month is a welcome move from the Fiat-Chrysler alliance, but it's only a single model and a limited production one at that.

If the Milanese firm is serious about catching up with the rest of the world, and by that, we mean German, Japanese and even American carmakers; its needs to follow up with more proposals, and especially ones that capture the hearts and souls of car enthusiasts.

Here's a fresh batch of renderings of the new Alfa Romeo Gloria sports sedan concept, which was jointly developed by the Italian automaker with students at the European Design Institute (IED) of Turin, and will be revealed in the flesh at the Geneva motor show in March.

Included in this set are sketches that provide a first glimpse at the interior with its four-seat layout and the classic, twin binnacle instrument panel.

The second most problematic child in the Fiat-Chrysler Group after Lancia, is also the one with the greatest prospects for future growth – just as long as the Italians get their cards right and finally begin investing in products.

Of course, we're talking about Alfa Romeo, which is trying to tell the world that it's slowly getting back on its feet with the presentation of a new concept model for a sharply styled sports sedan that will join the highly-anticipated production version of the 4C mid-engine coupe at next month's Geneva Auto Salon.

If anything else, the community here at CarScoop seems hyped about Alfa's return to its roots with the upcoming 4C series.

After one of our readers who attended an Alfa Romeo dealer meeting in Europe shared detailed information about the 4C, including preliminary pricing, production numbers and even the company's plans to expand the range with Racing, Spider and Stradale versions, another reader, Anton Gjorsev, sent us this rendering of the convertible model.

The last great sports car to be produced by Alfa Romeo was the 8C Competizione offered in limited numbers between 2007 and 2010, which shared its platform and V8 engine with the Maserati GranTurismo.

For the near future, the Italians have promised us at least two new sports models, the 4C mid-engine coupe and the next Mazda MX-5-based Spider, both of which are expected to be less spectacular than the 8C, but also much more affordable.

Alfa Romeo Orazio Satta Four-Door Coupe Design Study Revisited and Refined


Read more

Just like carmakers in real life, independent designers drawing conceptual studies on paper or on computer screens will often revisit their work and implement styling changes to evolve their projects and/or possibly even address criticism about certain aspects of the design.

This seems to be the case with Italian designer Marco Procaccini from MP Car Design and his Alfa Romeo Orazio Satta, which we first showed you back in September.

Alfa Romeo Giulia GT50 Concept is a Modern Reinterpretation of Bertone's Classic Sprint GT


Read more

For the time being, Alfa Romeo may be tangled in the ever-changing puzzle that is the Fiat-Chrysler group product plan, but there's certainly something about the brand that ignites automotive stylists’ inspiration.

With the Alfa Romeo Giulia 50GT Concept, Rome-based Italian designers Michele Di Mauro and Claudio Piccioli who run the GetShaped Studio have re-imagined the Giulia Sprint GT penned by Bertone.

Apart from bringing the classic Alfa coupe into the 21st century, the two designers wanted to celebrate the studio’s centenary as well as the model’s 50th anniversary (hence the “50” in the name).

The two studies, a GT-oriented and a sportier, more aggressive version (the red and the grey-colored examples respectively) remain faithful to the overall concept of the original Giulia, retaining its large circular headlamps and oversized Alfa “shield” at the front, as well as the hood air vent.

If you think about it, one of the few marques in Europe that has the dynamics, the name and history to truly compete against the dominant premium carmakers from Germany such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, in all categories and on a global scale, is Alfa Romeo. Which is probably why the VW Group has showed such an interest in the firm.

Too bad the Fiat Group never really allocated the sources or the time to rebuild and refocus the famed Italian brand as a real premium automaker.

In fact, last we heard, Sergio Marchionne has kicked the can down the road (again…) postponing Alfa Romeo's re-entry to the U.S. market and delaying many of its planned models like the 159 replacement.

But we're dragging away from our main story that is a design study from an old acquaintance of CarScoop, Italian designer Marco Procaccini, who sent us these renderings and a video of his newest project.
