I think Peter has it right here. I was in the garage all weekend tinkering with the Giulietta and the Boat-tail and I discovered what was "right" and what was "wrong" with Alfa. The Giulietta has a solid rear axle located by coil spring and tube shocks, an all aluminum DOHC engine, brake big enough to stop the Metro-Liner and a sculpted body designed by Pininfarina. Same for the Boat-tail... Then, they were cutting edge stylish modern GT/Sports Cars that could more than hold their own with any competition.For me an Alfa has unique and capable driving dynamics, cutting edge technology and beautiful designs. They have stubbornly Italian features. 4C fits this definition as does a Stelvio that is fit for a different purpose. Would be nice if Alfa would expand their presence in Motorsports besides sponsoring Sauber. One of my best Alfa memories is watching Fangio drive the Type 159 Alfetta F1 championship car at Laguna Seca in 1984. Every Alfa should have some of that DNA.
