Customers in the United States can still order the Alfa Romeo 4C despite rumors of the company pulling the plug.
A few days ago, multiple car sites stated that the FCA has killed off the Alfa Romeo 4C sports car. Carscoops reached out to Jordan Wasylyk who takes care of Fiat and Alfa Romeo communications and he responded with an answer that’ll come across as a piece of good news for fans of the car.
Wasylyk said, “The US 4C Spider is not canceled and is still available for order.” So the sports car, though facing extinction in the near future is still on the rack. It’ll be meeting its maker for sure, as Alfa Romeo has not announced any plans for a successor.
Until then, Alfa Romeo 4C admirers can place their orders for the desirable sports car powered by a turbocharged 1.75-liter 4-cylinder unit which produces 237 hp of power and 258 lb-ft of torque. With a top speed of 257 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 4.1 seconds, the 4C is a competent offering in the segment as well.
The company is focusing on the Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV for now and will be expanding the lineup in the next few years with an electric compact crossover. Cost-cutting is also attributed as one of the reasons for the manufacturer trimming down its range of products.
