The Next Generation GTA

On the Cloverleaf club website you can ask "I would like Alfa to...", and so I asked:

"Produce a technically innovative compact sports saloon that is the rightful replacement for the 156 GTA (and lives up to the real GTA reputation)."

Got an interesting response:

"We are working on something behind the scenes but this is some time away. All we can say is that we will see the GTA badge sooner but on another car rather than the Alfa 159!"

I presume that means we will see a Mi.To GTA or perhaps a 149 GTA?. Any thoughts?

Cheers,

Nigel

Re: The Next Generation GTA

Interesting.. Probably more likely to be the 149. I don't think the MiTo will wear a GTA badge, at least it won't be the next GTA anyway..

A squashed Qashqai..... Now there's a great name. Let's hope it's the 149 GTA. Sounds like Alfa is putting a lot of effort into the 149.

Re: The Next Generation GTA

I think it'll be the MiTo with the 1.8 turbo kicking 220hp or so.

Re: The Next Generation GTA

I have actually read about Brera GTA as the next GTA. Change of a lots of parts to aluminium and loads of HP. Don´t remember where though...

I think there will be a MiTo like that, but they won't called it the MiTo GTA..

Re: The Next Generation GTA

I heard the 230bhp version of the Mito will be called the Supersport. Or S.S. ...... Seems like a bad decision to me if that's true because surely they should be distancing it from the fastest Punto(Abarth EsseEsse...which means SS in Italian), not giving it basically the same name.....

Re: The Next Generation GTA

I'm betting on the 149 GTA. I think I would consider it a possible replacement for the 156 GTA. Mi.To would be too small, Brera, well she's more of a GT in the true sense of the word than a GTA (to me at least).

Cheers,

Nigel

Re: The Next Generation GTA

I never thought we would see it in 159 form. It's the new Mito GTA.
