sergio marchionne alfa 4c

In early 2010, Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said Alfa Romeo would be relaunched in the U.S market by late 2012, with a mid-size sedan, a sport wagon, and a crossover. By September, 2011, officials were saying that plans for all three models had been scrapped; the Alfa brand would be reintroduced to the U.S. in 2013, not 2012; and the first model to reach these shores would be the 4C sports car. But delays continue to pile up: This fall, Marchionne told dealers that Alfa's return would be further postponed, and the first car would not be arriving until 2014.
