Once all the new mainstream EVs are out, the sports car arrives.
Alfa says it’ll be here by the end of the decade.
There have only been two Alfa sports cars so far this century.
Alfa Romeo is a brand of premium cars that permeates the ages. Its history, design, and performance heritage oozes beauty, speed, and sports cars. That was the case, at least, in the last century.
So far, in the 2000s, Alfa Romeo released the limited-run ultra-exotic 8C and the pocket-rocket 4C. The past holds a number of glamorous sports cars of which two, the Spider “Duetto” and T33 Stradale were brought while the subject was being discussed.
About the return of a sports car, Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato told Autocar: “If I bring a good level of business, I’m sure that [Stellantis boss] Carlos Tavares and I will one day speak about some dream cars because I have to support the storytelling of Alfa Romeo in the future. It’s not for tomorrow, but I would love to have a Duetto one day.”
Before this happens, however, Alfa Romeo will have to sell loads of their latest addition, the all-new Tonale SUV, and get more Stelivios out the door. As well, Alfa has a few mainstream EVs it will launch over the coming years and if all goes to plan, we’ll all get to soak in the inevitable beauty that will be the next Spider “Duetto” as an EV.
