Re: How much longer can Fiat / Alfa last in the UK?
I like to think Alfa will last but, with so many GM ingredients on the new 159 and Brera, I am worried many traditional enthusiasts will be dissapointed. Also Fiat are in trouble on a global scale, since the Coupe and Barchetta in my opinion they havent designed a desirable car. Ok they may make good bread and butter cars but there is nothing exceptional about them to tempt people from other Marques. The Panda is a slow box on wheels, the Stylo is too ordinary, and the Grand punto is nice enough but a bit bland.
Having said that I love the styling of the 159 and Brera, although they have not got the classic lines of the GTV or 156 IMO.
Don't get me wrong on this I love Fiats and especially Alfa's, but I am not sure what direction they think they are going.
