    Alfa resurgence....

    Enjoyed reading this .... not only because they talk about Aston Martin in profit but outline Alfa going the same way..........Only down side is no manuals in Alfa’s going forward or Maserati...but then we new that already for Maserati.......for Alfa this doesn’t feel the right move....

    Good news a potential Giulia Sportswagon Q.V...Now That would be a car worth having and the lacklustre 4C having a mechanical makeover to make it competitive. And great to hear him talk about a halo model..........Feels like Alfa are finally going the right way. Just need to get the quality right and interior materials up to scratch and they will be a force to be reckoned with......

    A pleasing read indeed Andy; there is hope for Maserati yet, clearly he is focusing on the more mass market marque first which is business sense. He does get things done and quickly!

    They do seem to be giving Alfa the push rather than Maserati. Well let's hope it rubs if on Maserati ...

    If I recall, after sorting FIAT, ALFA was the next brand to be sorted, and most feared of getting it wrong considering the passion associated with the brand, including mine.

    With all the accolade of the Guila, I'm not convinced. I loved ALFA, but the current range seem mediocre, both in appearance and handling unless one notches up to Abarth levels. Some serious and radical thinking needed.

    I really really do hope they can pull it off, wake up the masses of porridge about

    I am really hoping for an F Type competitor with that lovely v6 engine and a canvas roof - I'd even sell my GranTurismo to fund it.

    I am going to buy a Stelvio, 280 bhp. Just trying to work out if it is worth waiting for the Veloce version. I think the Stelvios are selling well in the UK.

    The fact that people are talking about Alfa in a positive light and not just those old die hards who follow the brand regardless is a major step forward. The Giulia & Stelvio both getting loads of press and publicity with hopefully more to come and finally people buying, once again from outside the normal Alfa circle.

    Well done Alfa here's to the future - its a long time since we could say that
