This report from Auto Forecast Solutions should be the trigger for grown men to break into tears. At least for me. I’ve had my 4C for just over a year and to hear that this magnificent motor may be discontinued, well it’s just not right.
In saying that, if it is true, then there’s no doubt in my mind, that values will increase over time.
The Alfa Romeo 4C may not be around for very much longer.
According to Autoline, who cited a report from Auto Forecast Solutions, the Alfa Romeo 4C’s production is slated to end by 2020 due to slumping sales of the sports coupe. It also means that a second-generation model isn’t likely to happen.
So far this year, the Italian automaker has sold a mere 309 units, marking a three-percent drop compared to last year’s 320 units. Another possibility causing the Alfa Romeo 4C to be discontinued is that its carbon fiber monocoque isn’t cheap to build, and the market for mid-engine sports cars is dwindling, especially one that doesn’t have power steering.
It will be a sad tale if the Alfa Romeo 4C gets discontinued, considering it heralded the return of the brand in the U.S. But Alfa Romeo does have the Giulia sedan on the horizon that will compete with the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class models, and it is also working on the Stelvio crossover to take advantage of the booming segment.
Every article I write is targeted at providing as much information for car owners and prospective car buyers.
Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to experts. Am I an expert? I’ve been in the car business for over 38 years, and while there are areas where I’ll reach out to friends and acquaintances for advice, I’ve got a pretty good grasp of most aspects of the business. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – Car Doctor, Car Professor or The Car Guy, but whenever someone wants some sensible advice, they call me.
I don’t charge for advice, whether it’s on the phone, via email or face to face. I’m happy to provide my expertise whenever I can. So if you want to chat to The Car Guru, get in touch.
I have access to good quality cars – you can see them on Cars Guide. Just click here [Cars Guide] to view our current stock of vehicles.
Other parts of my business that you may find the need to use from time to time are:
www.genuinespares.com.au. This is an online spare parts store for Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Volkswagen and Isuzu Ute. I’ve got thousands of mechanical and panel parts plus Mopar (Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa) T-Shirts, tyres, and alloy wheels as well. If you’re looking for a hard to get replacement part for any of these brands, or you just want to get a better price than retail on any car brand, let me know. And you won’t pay inflated replacement parts prices either. I’ve priced my stock at a discounted value to compete with the USA and Europe spare parts prices but with local delivery charges
We’re local agents for Williams Paint and Interior Protection as well as AutoGard and CleanGard car products and SunX window tinting. The Same story applies. This is an area that car dealers want to make an amazing amount of profit – up to 100% in some cases. Don’t get ripped off by the franchise car dealers – check us out for a local competitive price on car protection products, window tinting, and engine products.
I’m pleased to advise that in 2015 I was awarded the franchise for 1800Approved Finance. As a local finance company, we’re able to provide a better level of service than the local car dealers as well as pretty competitive rates. SO before you sign on the dotted line, let us compare rates on finance and insurance for you – no obligation. If you’re looking for finance for a new or used car, or any other worthwhile purpose, our company can assist – even if you’ve had some troubling financial issues.
BLOG – I write a new Blog for my website a couple of times a week. If you’d like to read some of the stories I’ve written just click here.
