Why don't Alfa do a convertible saloon ?

On Gorgeous days like today in the UK i'd love a convertible but having kids there only seems to be a few options like the A4 or Saab soft tops which got me thinking why on earth don't Alfa have a convertible 4 seat option ?

The GT or 159 would look great as convertibles.....why has it never happened ?

Because they would not be fitting with the Alfa image?

I think it's because the likely number of sales would be too low to justify the production costs.

Just a wild guess

Viz magazine describe such cars as MILF Floats

Probably due to the owners they tend to attract..

Funny one - don't see many Female drivers of the Saab convertible.

Think an Alfa soft top would sell very well in the UK.

Might just go for a ti and hack off the roof
