The Spider was a prime example of stylish Italian open-top motoring and it wouldn’t hurt Alfa
Since 1966, when it was launched at the 36th edition of the Geneva Motor Show, Alfa Romeo continued to develop the drop-top in six generations.
The last one left the assembly lines in 2010. Six years is too long to wait, especially in the face of the ever stiffening competition.
With the brand being buoyant about the Giulia, and since the saloon is a good starting point for other future models that are bound to enter Alfa Romeo’s lineup, IndavDesign has injected some new pixels into the Spider, with visual influences from the brand’s latest four-door, wrapped around its underpinnings.
In theory it would have worked very nicely. The reality is that FCA chose Fiat and Abarth for their version of the MX-5 roadster, they aren’t exactly loaded with cash and Alfa’s future is entwined with the Giulia, so there’s no Spider on their schedule right now.
Here;s hopping: is one looks a new Spider could probably re-establishing Alfa’s image in the 21st century.
