Alfa Romeo, known for its enthralling Italian styling, is frequently appreciated from a distance because of its unsteady reliability record. Still, there’s been a positive trend in recent years, suggesting that the brand is actively trying to improve reliability and performance. Alfa Romeo encourages enthusiasts to look more closely at what the brand has to offer beyond its aesthetically stunning looks as it works to solve and improve these areas.

Stellantis was once tangled in confusion with too many brands and strategies. Now, after clearing the chaos, their plans are paying off – big profits, even with not-so-great sales in the U.S. last year. The cleanup seems to be working for them!

Even with a 1% dip in a crucial market, Stellantis scored record profits and revenue in 2023. This success is credited to elevated pricing and notable progress within some of its brands. Breaking from the trend of only offering the Giulia sedan and Stelvio CUV, Alfa Romeo introduced the new Tonale compact crossover SUV to the American market. Remarkably, this model marks Alfa Romeo’s debut in the realm of electrified vehicles.

Alfa Romeo isn’t stopping at the Tonale; they’re gearing up to launch the Milano subcompact crossover SUV – their inaugural all-electric model. Built on the STLA Small (e-CMP 2) platform, it’s closely related to models like the Jeep Avenger and Fiat 600. Notably, the Milano won’t stick to just electric power; it plans to introduce internal combustion engine (ICE) variants down the road.

At the pinnacle, there’s the exclusive flagship, the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. This limited-series model pays homage to the 1967 original and comes in both EV and gasoline versions. However, it’s a tribute limited to just 33 units, adding an extra layer of exclusivity to this elite lineup.

Alas, just 33 units sold for an arm and a leg maybe won’t do justice to Alfa Romeo’s long-standing sporty reputation, right? Well, the imaginative realm of digital car content creators has a solution for that. Cue Giorgi Tedoradze, the Georgia-based industrial designer better known as tedoradze.giorgi on social media, who has a sporty Alfa Romeo in his mid-engine mind: 6C.

Meet the potential successor to the Alfa Romeo 4C (Type 960), the mid-engine sports car that graced the market from 2013 to 2020. This revamped model is larger and poses a formidable challenge, possibly aiming at the iconic C8 Chevrolet Corvette. Under the hood, it packs a punch with the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine borrowed from the Giulia Quadrifoglio, boasting an impressive 533 horsepower, reminiscent of the GTA and GTAm versions. With its enhanced size and powerful engine, this Alfa Romeo creation could emerge as a serious contender against the C8 Chevy Corvette Stingray.

Regrettably, the idea of a successor to the Alfa Romeo 4C is purely imaginative, and there’s no indication that Alfa Romeo is considering such a move. Even if they were, the proposed 6C model could come with a significant price hike, potentially reaching double the $68,300 MSRP of the 2024 Corvette Stingray. This speculative pricing would position the 6C in a different league, making it more comparable to competitors like the Lotus Emira V6, which carries a price tag of $94,000. In essence, while the notion is intriguing, practicality and market dynamics might steer Alfa Romeo in a different direction.
