The Alfa dealer network will still be around well past the warranty period of any remaining vehicles with one. There are laws about such things.
Don't need an Alfa dealer network. We have FCA warranties.

I hope this is not the end of the lightweight true sports car. In Europe at least they still have the Renault Alpine. In North America, your choice is down to the Miata.
People nowaday think that their muscle car = sports car which is totally flawed thinking. So many people believe their Panamera, C63 and X5M are "sports cars"....:rolleyes:

Fiata exists too, while the brz/86 twins are a little heavier, I'd still consider them pretty light weight in today's terms, and they come in stick!

At 2,700+ pounds they're not exactly featherweights, but the Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86 twins are quite entertaining.

As for our 4Cs, I expect they'll have the unique distinction of being both the first and last sports car built around a carbon tub on the working man's side of $100K.

Hopefully, like the Dino 246 GTs that sold for $14,500 in the early 70s and fetch 25 to 30 times that amount today, future enthusiasts and collectors will look back on the 4C for the bargain it was, and think ruefully, "Damn, in 2019 I could have bought one of those new for only $60K."

:unsure: So after I enjoy every second of it for 50 years, I can retire!

Not exactly cut short though. A 6 year model run is pretty normal. Only a few oddball outliers continued longer than that. And most of those were in the 70s/80s.

The Giulietta will see at least 10. Currently at 9 yrs. With Manley canning its replacement it looks like it’ll be going to at least 2021 or whenever the Tonale arrives.

Unless it is a Nissan.
370-Z is in its 11th model year without anything more than different wheels.
Frontier is basically unchanged since 2005.
Titan first generation ran 2003 to 2015.

Doesn’t read in the article, but is this before all 108 Competitiones and Italias are built? Or is this just the long known end of production, how crazy I still think it is.

Don’t forget Lotus. Guess with the FCA-PSA merge that that will be where I am going. Not that I’ll sell my pretty, of course!!
