According to Autoblog, the Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe is being axed for the 2019 model year. The sporty Italian mid-engine coupe has been a poor seller since it made it’s North American debut in 2014. The Coupe was the first step of the Alfa Romeo brand’s return to the United States market. Thus far in it’s lifespan the 4C has sold 1,652 units in the United States since 2014. Sales hit it’s peak in 2015, with 663 units sold for the year.
Well news isn’t all bad for the Alfa Romeo diehards out there. The 4C Spyder will continue on sale in the United States market for the 2019 model year.Motor Authority reports that it gets a $1,000USD price hike for next year, to $66,900USD.
Earlier this month Fiat Chrysler Automobile (FCA) announced at it’s Capital Market’s Day press event that the Alfa Romeo was working on a new all-wheel drive, twin-turbo mid-engined Alfa Romeo 8C. This vehicle would ultimately replace the 4C Spyder when it comes to market. But for now, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spyder is buying time.
