Alfa Romeo is going to launch a new, lightweight Spider in 2015. And it's almost unthinkable that it will be anything other than excellent. How? Because underneath, it will be the next-generation Mazda MX-5. But it will have Alfa's own body styling and engines.
I'm of two minds on this. It would be great to have a dependable engine and electrics under beautiful Alfa body but then again all the little niggles are part of an Alfa's charm.
