A Maserati Ghibli-based mule was spotted last month, and it seems that it really was a precursor for an all-new rear-driven Alfa Romeo sedan.
At least that’s what AutoEdizione is saying, calling it “Progetto 952” – we know it as “Giulia.” Now, they’re also adding a reveal date for the model, or a close-to-production preview of it, set for June 24, 2015, coinciding with the day Alfa turns 105.
It would be a fitting anniversary present for the ailing, virtually non-existent brand, not only because it’s a highly anticipated new model, but also due to the fact it’s turning out to be rear-wheel drive, after all.
Maybe now his promises made over three years ago will materialize – he said they’d have visible results in the year 2015, and he’s still got time to prove himself right.
