It will look crap.

My solution was to buy a contigo flask. It never leaks, i can take it anywhere and keeps coffee nice and warm for at least 2 hours

I found a solution for my coffee cup: I bought a coffee cup holder in halfords for €3.99. I cut off the hook, and screwed it into the door card; as seen in photos.PS will tidy up edge at a later date

The screws i used to secure the cup holder are slim, into a soft padding,very little evidence left when removed.

Ewww that does look a bit Frankenstein rather than factory fit .

Can say I ever felt the need to drink and drive so never missed cup holders , its just something to spill in the car .

I assume that you posted photographs to get reactions, so here is mine:-

It looks awful. I'd rather have needles stuck into my eye than do that to my GTV, and as I have had two eye operations I know what that feels like.

Sacrilege!

The best, nay only, coffee cup holder in a GTV (or 916 Spider) is a passenger! A good looking female one with long legs and a short skirt!

Hang on. Forget the bloody coffee in those circumstances

GTV 916C1 24v V6

Once took a girl on date in the GTV

She. Couldn't figure out how to open the door, groaned about how hard it was to get inside and finished it off with a "I don't like your car.. it hasn't even got cup holders"

"A man that drives an Alfa Romeo doesn't drink his coffee from a paper cup, like an animal.

He sits comfortably and enjoys his espresso from a carefully crafted ceramic vessel like a human being."

The date went well..

Best place for a cup holder in the gtv would be in the rear footwell behind the drivers seat.

On my ph2 gtv I put the coffee cup at the back of the centre console, easy!

On my ph1 spider it's a little more difficult, I used to slot it down the side of the seat between the door and the side/bolster. Now I move the passanger seat back as far as it goes and slot my coffee travel mug behind the passanger seat and it sit in there nice n tight :-)

Slight change of subject. For a mobile phone holder I just wedge my phone into the gap between the seat base and the bolster of the passanger seat. Holds it nice and tightly and doesn't move no matter how fast I go.

Nooo cupholders please.
I just get my espresso in a café, parking Bella outside, coming in sideways with screeching tires, leaving her with the emergency blinker on.
By the time the parking officer arrives, I am done with the espresso, I go outside and yells "VafaNapoli stronzo!" at him, and drive of like Giles Villeneauve.

I think jowey is right. Screwing a cupholder to an Alfa makes you a bit of a 'minchia' - to coin an Italian phrase. Find a place to park near a cafe order a late macchiato and if a bit rough from the night before some tiramisu [that means 'pick me up'] relax, read the paper and admire the legs of the young ladies [or whatever you prefer] passing by. Then slip behind the wheel of your Italian Stallion of choice and drive off......
