Alfa Romeo 4C To be Discontinued by 2020

If you have the ways to purchase a Alfa Romeo 4C, you might wish to ring your local Alfa dealership now due to the fact that the light-weight cars might not remain in production for a lot longer. A report from Autoline, mentioning Auto Forecast Solutions, mentions that the 4C will be ceased due to slow sales of the vehicle, indicating a 2nd generation is most likely cancelled with production of the existing automobile slated to end by 2020.

Sales of the Alfa Romeo 4C have actually been sluggish since it introduced, and have been the slowest yet this year. Only 309 units have actually been offered, which is a 3 percent drop compared with this time last year, when 320 automobiles discovered homes. Aside from lackluster sales, it’s possible that the 4C might get eliminated since the carbon monocoque that forms the foundation of the car is rather expensive to develop. Furthermore, the marketplace for a mid-engine cars without any power steering and very little modern creature comforts is extremely thin, particularly in the United States.

The 4C marked the comeback of Alfa Romeo in the United States as it was the first routine production automobile it has offered here since it left in the mid-1990s, aside from the extremely limited-production 8C Competizione and 8C Spider offered in the late 2000s. As part of its product offensive, Alfa Romeo introduced the Giulia, a sport sedan that will do battle versus the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class when it goes on sale later on this year. Following the Giulia is Alfa’s very first crossover, which is rumored to be called Stelvio, and is intended at the likes of the Porsche Macan and BMW X3.
