Rumorpile: Alfa Romeo Giulia Coupe To Bow At Geneva :Comments

Recommended Posts

If you thought Alfa Romeo was going to stop with just doing the Giulia sedan, think again. Motoring has learned that Alfa Romeo is planning to show a Giulia coupe at the Geneva Motor Show next month. 

The report says the coupe will revive the Sprint name and take on the likes of the Audi A5, BMW 4-Series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe. The engine lineup will be the same as the sedan, which includes a turbocharged 2.0L four and the turbocharged 2.9L V6 found in the Quadrifoglio. Down the road,  Alfa will be adding a convertible and wagon to the Giulia lineup.

No mention of when the Giulia Sprint could go on sale.

Yup, better quality than Fiat but not great, but they have generated Billions that Sergio took to bring back from death Alfa and make him look like superman in Italy since it created jobs there, but in essence, it was a short vision thinking as it is killing the goose that laid the golden egg and now the American Brands are just about dead. Since Alfa generates ZERO Profits and is a black hole sucking down money, how will it survive once people stop buying Chrysler and Dodge products cause they are so old in comparison to the rest of the auto world.

SERGIO = IDIOT, NO VISION, STUPID, Should have been fired long ago if it was not for his manipulation of numbers to keep the board employed also. They are only looking for a way to get to retirement and not about long life of the company or jobs.

IMHO

For all their flaws, they are certainly better now than anything from Alfa, not mention the jobs kept here by producing Chrysler and Dodge products.

They are not different, all at the bottom together

26  3 Dodge 5 28
27  5 Chrysler 2 26
28 - Fiat 2 17
29  3 Ram 2 16

And your little graph is from? Most of that is reflective of FCAs neglect more than a direct issue with Dodge or Chrysler. Regardless, Dodge and Chrysler never got ran out of the country for being piles of $h!. Alfa and Fiat were run out in the 80s for that very reason.

@surreal1272 you must be joking, Chrysler had horrible quality way before Fiat bought them.

I have nothing personal against Chrysler but blaming all of their problems on Fiat is just wrong.

Not saying they didn't have problems and I mentioned that the first time but to sit here and act like Fiat hasn't contributed to it is also a joke. Fiat is $h!.

True they did, but that is not what was stated.

Agree, Fiat and Alfa were more terrible than any other auto company and left as no one was willing to buy their crap. They came back in thinking people would have forgotten about the 60's and 70's and we have not. Crap then, Crap now and when Fiat could have built up Chrysler, Dodge, Ram and Jeep, instead they have stolen the billions to try and bring back Alfa "FAILED" and to prop up Fiat.

If Sergio had half a brain, he would have dumped the low end of Chrysler and built it to be a true luxury competitor, continued to improve and grow Dodge, Jeep and Ram and with solid products from those 4, then replace and improve Fiat and the rest. Instead he choose to take the billions, lie and bring back a pathetic Alfa that does not sell and keep Fiat building the same crap that people buy and dump on the market before they have 10,000 miles on them.

      The next-generation Land Rover Defender has had quite the lengthy development with various changes taking place. We have reported that the new Defender will not look like the DC 100 concepts shown earlier this decade. There is another change afoot.
      According to Autocar, Land Rover has decided to make the new Defender to debut the Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA). Previously, the Defender was expected to use the Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA) - what underpins the Discovery and a number of Range Rover models. But MLA will be replacing PLA as it will be lighter and offer more flexibility to be used in more models. Using the Defender makes sense as its being redone from the ground up, and may explain the lengthy delay in development.
      One other interesting tidbit is the Defender will be built in Slovakia, not Great Britain like the previous model. Autocar says the Defender will begin production in 2020.
      There are some other tidbits concerning other Land Rover and Jaguar models in Autocar's report
      The next-generation Range Rover Evoque is said to be debuting later this year at the LA Auto Show, with sales beginning in the new year. It will use a heavily reworked version of its current platform that will be known as Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA). This will allow a new plug-in hybrid model that will use a new three-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine - don't expect to see it here. Jaguar's large crossover, known as J-Pace will go into production in 2020. It is understood it will use MLA. Another rumor about the Ingenium straight-six. Reportedly, JLR will use a high-performance version with electric turbochargers to replace their V8 engines. Source: Autocar

      A new report from Autocar says that Land Rover has filed a trademark application for "Road Rover". It could be that Land Rover is keeping prospective or like-sounding names under their umbrella, not leading to a new model. But in the case of the Road Rover, there might be more to this.
      Back in September, we brought to the light the Road Rover project. This model is being aimed at the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and is reportedly being developed alongside the next-generation Jaguar XJ. As the name suggests, the Road Rover will focus primarily on on-road performance but still have some off-road chops. Power is expected to come from a set of electric motors.
      Autocar says the model could debut at next year's LA Auto Show.
