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 Spring 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.

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 idea of Porsche doing a 911 hybrid has come and gone, and it seems to be coming once again.
      Bloomberg has learned from sources at Porsche that they are considering a hybrid powertrain for their iconic sports car once again. If given the green light, it would appear a few years after the launch of the next-generation 911 (due sometime next year) and possibly offer up to 40 miles of electric-only range. A problem that engineers are working on is trying to cut down battery weight the handling characteristics the vehicle is known for.
      It should be noted the Porsche has been going back and forth on this idea since 2014. Back in May, Porsche's head of development for the 718 and 911 said plans for 911 plug-in hybrid were canceled last year due to weight concerns and not being able to make much a profit as they would with a standard 911.

      Bentley appears to have electric vehicles on the brain. Back in September, we reported that the luxury automaker decided to go forward on an electric coupe over a small SUV. It seems there are plans for another electric vehicle.
      According to a report from Automobile Magazine, Bentley will be working on its own version of the Porsche Mission E codenamed J1. The new model will use the Mission E architecture which is said to have three different power outputs - 402, 536, and 670 horsepower. But there is talk of Porsche working on a monster version producing 936 horsepower and coming with larger batteries. Expect a four-door coupe design and possibly wearing the name of Barnato.
      There is a wrinkle to this as Audi is said to be working on its own take on the J1 possibly named e-tron GT.
