4C Spider?

Don P
Carson City, NV

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 30 years) Nearly 50 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird


You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...

i don't think that the 4c counts as a true spider.

What ended up being the new Fiat 124 Spider was originally slated to be the new Alfa Spider but Sergio "The Sweater" Marchionne & company decided (rightly in my opinion) that an Alfa needed to be it's own car, not a warmed over Miata. I actually kind of like the 124 but I think for Alfa to establish real credibility they need to make cars that need no apology, like the new Guilia.

Hopefully we'll see a successor to our beloved Spiders sometime soon.

Why isn't the 4C Spider a true "Spider"?

I my eyes it is.
The rumers in Europe has it that the next Alfa Spider will be based on a Giulietta 940 (at present in production) replacement with RWD around 2020.
If I understand the import rules of the US you will be able to import the Spider/GTV version 916. They were monologued in the US before Alfa/Fiat pulled the plug on the US market.

I'm fully aware of the 105/115 range of Spider (I have owned a S2 for 10+ years). I known that the US market have not had the 916 and the Brera Spiders and GTVs (936), which was sold on all other markets that Alfa was present on.
