Giulia Coupe Would Fit In Alfa Romeo Range Nicely

An Italian two-door machine to go BMW 4-Series Coupe and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe hunting would be more than welcome.

Based on the same rear-wheel drive platform as the Giulia and sharing most of its exterior design, the rendering was envisioned by Renna Design with longer front doors and the inevitable move of the B-pillar towards the rear.

For the moment, Alfa Romeo hasn’t announced any plans to put a two-door version into production. In fact, they haven’t even started selling the sedan yet.

Since the four-door is aimed towards a very competitive segment that offers similar rides from manufacturers like Audi, Jaguar and Cadillac, on top of the aforementioned “usual suspects”, it would not be a bad idea to see Giulia coupe on the road.

FCA management will want to wait and see if their new saloon is going to be a success before they give the green light, though, and the Stelvio SUV has priority anyway, so we wouldn’t bet on it.

    A Giulia coupe only makes sense if you’re part of the VW-Group, where each brand “steps on the
    other brands “toes” (i.e.product). ALFA (Fiat) is smaller and they have to be careful of Maserati-
    who “ain’t” been doing so great…

    • FCA seems to know how to give life again in US brands, but not italians. The 124, Tipo, Giulia, Maseratti are not going to save them. Sell Ferrari is just a short term financial help.

        except for the fact that maserati is very well profiting with what they have (exceeded sales goals) and its before the SUV is on sale.

          Actually, they’ve idled production because they haven’t met sales goals.

          • Tomaz Hilton

            Just because a company Idles a plant, doesnt mean they are not selling enough units, it just means they build to many cars. Also Maseratis Goal was 20-25,000 units by 2015 they reached 32,000 units. monthly sales were usually in the positive.

      a Giulia Coupe version of a COMPACT sedan and a Maserati Coupe are to different cars. Its like comparing a 4 Series to a F12

    Since FCA is trying to launch Alfa as a German hunter, then yes the Giulia coupe makes sense, but it’s gonna have to look way better than just dropping the 2 rear doors. Slam that roof line! Throw on a lip spoiler on and lift the butt! Streamline the sides to reduce some of the visual bulk. It’s gotta look just as good if not better than the A5/C/4 coupes.

      If you did all that you would have the new GTV6 coupe. Hence my point.

      • Kash

        are you talking about the Maserati GranTurismo with a V6? Because Maserati has been talking about replacing the V8’s with V6’s since 2011 if not earlier. Oh and this year it was rumored to debut at Geneva but didn’t. Then if you’re talking about the Alfieri it’s a totally different ball park. Pretty much anything FCA says about launch dates can’t be taken anywhere near face value. At this point they should just do all their press releases from a salt mine.

        Also the VW method seems to be working because Porsche is making money hand over fist and has earned serious profits for yet another year, all while Audi did pretty well last year, and exceptionally well the year before. See Audi and Alfa are priced much lower and aren’t as exclusive as Maserati and Porsche and that’s why FCA and VW can have these two brands co-exist. Alfa and Audi are meant to be mass produced luxury cars and they are and will be that. VW realized that the price gap from Audi to Bentley is too big and they need something in between to catch the people wanting more than your average Audi but can’t afford that Bentley quite yet and that’s where Porsche comes in. The brands don’t step on each other’s toes because they’re not competing with one another.

          He’s talking about Alfa, not Maserati. Google for GTV6.

          • Kash

            I did and all i see are old ones. Is Alfa reviving the GTV6? I think I’m missing something completely.

        • Bo Hanan

          See europeon’s comment above mine. The Guilia you describe IS a new Alfa GTV6 coupe. One of these cars cannot be.
          And VW is not making money like Porsche. In fact Audi is not making money like the other Germans.

    The black one looks hawt.

    I love Italian cars and always have, it’s a shame we have to resort to these ‘what they should build’ photoshops.

  • Six Thousand Times

    That’s not a coupe. All this Photoshopping did was make a two-door sedan. Somebody needs to try harder.

    • Grumpy

      A coupe doesn’t need to be a sports car. Let’s not confuse the two. The M3 till this gen, and the clk were exactly this.

      • Six Thousand Times

        Nope. This is just a photoshopping out of the back doors. No change to the roofline means it’s no coupe. That’s a two-door sedan, there. Hopefully that clears up your confusion.

        • Tomaz Hilton

          Its a Coupe Sedan. Look it up, its a real thing. The Word Coupe also does not mean 2 Doors. whats why the Mercedes CLS is called a 4 Door coupe.

          • Six Thousand Times

            It’s from the French word coupé, the past participle of “to cut” and is given to mean a lowered (or shortened) roofline. Rover did a coupe version of their P5B in the sixties that had four doors. A four-door coupe is generally considered marketingese in the same way Nissan calls its Maxima a “four door sports car.”

            In the end, mu objection to calling this render a coupe wasn’t the number of doors, it was that the artist here digitally removed them without altering the body. He made a two-door sedan, something carmakers used to offer frequently but don’t anymore.

          • Tomaz Hilton

            The Dodge Charger in 68 was a “Coupe Sedan”.

          • Six Thousand Times

            What? There was no Charger sedan in the ’60s. It was a coupe based on the Coronet (I think they called it the B-body but I’m too lazy to look it up) platform. That platform also spawned another coupe in various Satellite, Coronet, and Road Runner guises. I don’t recall a two-door sedan with a post but there sure could have been one. Find me a link to anywhere Dodge called the Charger a “Coupe Sedan” (there’s an oxymoron for ya’) and I’ll take it back.

        • Grumpy

          The E36 coupe and sedan. Up till the last gen M3, this was true. The M4 marked the distinction.

          • Six Thousand Times

            Look at the roofline of the coupe you just posted and the overall height and see it that finally clears up your confusion.

      • Tomaz Hilton

        you mean the 6 Series and E Class coupe.

  • Markey

    AFAIK one such car is in developmen, though it might look a wee bit different from simply a two door Giulia
