If it hasnt got cruise I think its a Turismo. The Lussos had cruise and a cd player iirc.
As for the back box, they can go like that even on fairly new ones, not neccessarily a cause for concern.

Make sure the timing belts have been done within the last 36k miles or 3 years though, that is very important. Alfa have changed the intervals for the belts officially to 3yr / 36k miles.

I would have to say it has Turismo spec.
Has it got badges on the bottom of the front wings?

With regards to the backbox.....I personally would just replace it with another Alfa one and then paint it IMMEDIATLY with high temperature paint (pref black...available from Halfords). I did this and my exhaust has not gone rusty at all and its over 3 years old now.
