Alfa CEO wants an 8C GTA

Alfa CEO wants an 8C GTA
Few cars are as eminently desirable as the Alfa 8C Competizione. So how do you make us want it even more? Well, you can chop off the roof and make it into a roadster, but Alfa Romeo already did that. How about making it even more powerful? That’s hard to do – remember that, having developed the engine for its sister-company, Maserati has shoehorned the 450hp V8 into both the GranTurismo and the new Quattroporte to make more powerful S versions of both – but that’s exactly what Alfa’s new CEO, Luca de Meo, intends to do.… Continue reading

Waiting for the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA

Waiting for the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA
While the MiTo GTA doesn’t yet physically exist, it will become a reality, as declared by Luca de Meo in the course of the unofficial Alfa MiTo presentation. It’s apparently all just a question of time before we see the little sports version.

New Maserati Quattroporte Facelift

It’s hard not to love the Maserati Quattroporte. Between its Pininfarina lines and the Ferrari-developed chassis and engine, it’s a veritable four-door exotic that makes the top-of-the-line competition from England and Germany look downright ordinary. But both countries are preparing tantalizing new offerings (Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche Panamera), and the Quattroporte has been on the market for five years now.… Continue reading

Porsche to reveal Cayenne diesel in Geneva
A diesel engine and competitive price: and we’re still talking about a Porsche. In fact, to be precise, about a Cayenne – because the real cars from this company are different.
