AutomotiveNews reports that Alfa Romeo is beginning finally wrap up the development of its highly-anticipated rear-wheel drive platform that’s been described to turn the Italian automaker back into a brand of sport and luxury after a rough past.
Alfa Romeo’s biggest move however is its return to the US market, which will be kicked off by the new and incoming 4C sports car in 2015. Following that however will be the introduction of several other US-bound models built to compete against the likes of the BMW 5-Series and 3-Series. The new cars will be built on this new platform, which recently received the name “Giorgio.”
AN further learned that more details surrounding the platform are expected to be released later this May. It will also be flexible enough to incorporate all-wheel drive and is currently being co-developed with Maserati.
As of now, Alfa’s current plan is to have a midsize and full-size coupe, a flagship sedan, and at least three crossovers throughout the automaker’s five-year plan.
