2013 pt2

Autocar are reporting 2013 launch is confirmed after Alfa Romeo put out a PR flier teasing us a little further.

The finished 4C production car is still expected at the Geneva motor show in March. The flier just shows the car's five-spoke alloy wheel design with the promise of 'the car to end all cars' - about time I hear you say.

Styling is expected to keep true to the stunning 2011 concept and unlike other upcoming Alfa's will be built only in Italy. Production will not be capped as first suggested, it will be “built to demand”, Autocar's sources claim, adding “it's a hardcore Alfa designed to appeal to the true Alfistas”.

Doubts had been cast over the 4C’s launch date and reported here on previous articles, but although Alfa’s relaunch in America has been pushed back the 4c will go ahead and begin in Europe. Autocar go on to suggest there is still uncertainty about Fiat’s model plans - with more details expected on 30th October.

They also go on to confirm an open-top version of the 4C will follow in 2014-2015.

Great news at last
