Agreed Alfa makes a fine fun car; I also hear the french automakers specifically Peugeot are debating if they should also return to the USA market.

I've always liked Alfas, but I think the success in the American market will depend on their pricing. I am not sure if people would pay $60,000 for an Alfa.

I believe the 407 is a car that could be successful in the states, it reminds me a little of modern American sedans.



It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

Nope, Alfa Romeo always been on the pricey side. As for cheap Italian cars, Fiat is the one. I seriously doubt that Peugeot will return to the US, but sure
the 1007 could sell to the city-dwellers.

I rented a 159 for the Easter weekend. It is really an impressive car, very nice design. Now I don't have the prejudice that Alfas are crappy cars anymore.

Their price range is comparable with similar sized BMWs. It's just that Alfa had quality problems during the past which seem to be solved now.

OUtstanding! I can finally afford to own an Alfa (in other words own the Alfa and the car I'll drive while the Alfa is in the shop.

We had an '84 GT V6 and it was an incredible car. Drove like a demon (my brother actually got a ticket for doing 124mph in this car, and he was slowing down...he saved the citation for posterity). Sounded and looked right, and drove incredibly...have I said that?

I rented one last year in Italy, and loved it too.

I'll be on the list for one when they come out here.



Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?

This has been known since 2003...and you post this now?

They made an announcement in late 2003 that they will be entering the market sometime during the 2nd half of 2007 and early 2008.

Lets add to the fact that the build quality isnt the greatest.

Im not a fan of Alfa Romeo, while it might be a "new hip car" in the USA, its the same old same old for me.

That being said, I drive my uncle's 147GT fairly often when im in Poland. Does the job well, but nothing spectacular.
