I've driven one of three GTV's continuously to work, and now that I'm retired, as daily drivers and track day cars since 1974. My most recent, a '71 GTV has been nicely restored, is still serving as a "not so daily" driver (3-4 times a week) and will again see Willow Springs, Buttonwillow and Laguna Seca (or whatever they call it now). It's had a recent outing to the San Marino Classic car show.
I haven't driven or owned a modern Alfa (Well, since the late '70's). I saw an add for a 2017 Giulia Ti Lusso with 6500 miles on it so I went to look and test drive it three weeks ago...which led to a same day drive home.
I'm enjoying the Giulia a lot! My wife likes it too, she'll ride in it but not in the '71. HOWEVER, it's got 4 doors, not 2! And at 72 years old, while I find the Lusso driving position great, getting into the car is actually more challenging than with the '71 GTV.
What if Alfa made a new "retro" GTV for us? Something akin to what the manufacturers of modern retro-styled Cameros, Mustangs and Chargers are doing? Make something with 2 doors, easier ingress than the Giulia, elements of the GTV styling of the '70's, but with all the current Giulia's bells and whistles.
I took some time to sketch a "GTV" concept blending my '71's styling with the new Giulia's. First I scaled and printed side view pics I had of the cars, then I "averaged out" their profiles and wheel bases, sometime favoring the style of one over the other. One main goal I had was to open up the angle of the rear of the door to allow easier access for an old codger. And I wanted to capture a retro look. I kind of like it. It does need work, especially something about the roof-line needs refinement.
I'm sure many of you have WAY superior design skills compared to me. How about posting your "Retro" 2-door, modern GTV ideas? Maybe Alfa will take the hint. Perhaps it could be their somewhat lower priced entry level car.
