it is nice Alfa Romeo 4C. it is 1.8l turbo 240hp lightweight 2100pounds for US Market 1900pounds for EU market 0-60 in 4.5sec.
Soon Alfa will come out with the same 1.8 close to 300hp.
I kind know a little bit cause I am Italian so I know the brand pretty well.
Be ready to spend quiet of bit of money.

Prob not. It's an Alfa, most likely it will break down prior to your first payment.

It looks real nice but for ~55K there are a lot of options...

I like this car better in theory. I don't like the styling or the interior.

And the parts will take until your 10th payment to arrive.

I was under the impression that this car was a good deal cheaper. Would anyone actually buy this Alpha over a Porsche Cayman? That seems like an awful deal.

Alfa. Alfa Romeo.

And yes. I would - Beause it's NOT a Cayman. Too clinical and too common.

If they are in similar price range, I would totally go for the 4C. Porsche's are everywhere on the road, not that they make poor cars but when I pay $60,000+ for a sportscar I want to stand out.

Despite the looks of this car, how many of you would consider it a supercar? Obviously it's an entry level, it's Alfa's Cayman/Boxster, but I think the general public would think...holy crap!

If you complain about the interior in the 4C than your missing the point of the car.

Ok, we know the Cayman is the better of the two here...
so the question is, would you be truly purchasing the Alfa for yourself or for the public?
