Indeed, success in the U.S. is key to Alfa reaching its lofty goal of 300,000 global sales, the point at which it will stop hemorrhaging millions for parent company Fiat.
Last year (2005), Alfa sold a mere 126,000 units worldwide, down from 153,000 in 2004. And considering that Alfa has never sold 300,000 units in a single year, that sales goal seems particularly ambitious. The makers best year ever was 1989, when it sold 229,700 vehicles.
