Date Reportedly Set for Reveal of New Alfa Romeo Mid-Sized Sedan

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.

The announcement was apparently made by Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne, who recently also took over the reigns at Ferrari and announced there were going to be some strategy changes.

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.

    i do wonder if any auto makers has ever bought a designers sketch from a talented artist who’s posted a rendering online for a design that they absolutely have to have.

      Its one thing to do one sketch, something else entirely to do a full design within parameters they need to make it usable… I wonder the same though. in the VAG world, I’ve seen lots of great renders better than anything they actually make
