Here's an short blurb from the newspaper I saw on Sunday.

GENEVA MOTOR SHOW

Alfa Romeo hopes to increase its car sales by 50 percent by 2005 as a raft of fresh models hits the road, says Alfa chief Daniele Bandiera. Alfa sales totaled about 190,000 in 2002 and should rise to 200,000 this year before taking off as the new models are introduced. "We want to get to more than 300,000 unit sales a year in 2005, " Bandiera says. Bandiera says Alfa plans to return to the U.S. in 2007.

I'll be shocked if they EVER return to the US market. Compared to the small number cars they'd be able to sell vs. the capital investment in a dealer network and service, it just doesn't seem cost effective, unless they jack the price out of sight.

I heard that they'll share the dealer network with SAAB to lower the cost at first. Any idea??

They're all the same . .

That last drop of ketchup out of the bottle, the cubs winning the world series and Alfas coming to the U.S.

They all seem like they'll never happen.

otoh, perhaps by the time Alfa does return here, we'll all be driving those hovercars they promised us when we were kids! Whoohoo!
