Porsche engines in Alfa Romeo models? Depends on who you ask

Friday, March 18, 2011

porsche engines in alfa romeo models depends on who you ask
Volkswagen has been trying to get Alfa Romeo away from Fiat for a little while now, but it seems that their tactics have been less than persuasive and more than aggressive. A Fiat spokesman has even said, "We shut the door in their [VW’s] faces and now they’re trying to get in the window." One would think that would dissuade VW from pushing any further, but that person would be wrong.
Now, in Volkswagen’s attempt to become the world’s largest car manufacturing group by 2018, the German automaker is still pushing the sale and planning on what it would do if successful. Turns out, VW will be utilizing their close relationship with Porsche so that Alfa Romeo projects could benefit from the same flat-four engine that will be used in the Baby Boxster set to debut in just a few years.
If this component sharing is accomplished, this engine could make way for a revival of the Alfa Romeo Alfasud, or its successor the 33. The Alfasud was a compact car produced by Alfa from 1971-1989 and was one of Alfa Romeo’s most successful models. However, before that is even attempted, VW could decide to plop that flat four into Alfa’s newest concept: the Alfa Romeo 4C GTA.
So, apparently Volkswagen is not taking no for an answer even though Fiat has repeatedly stated that the brand is not for sale. Fiat even denied rumors that VW representatives met with local government representatives at Alfa’s Arese plant, calling them "complete and utter fantasy." All we can say is that Volkswagen should take their time with this deal if they ever want it to go through. Remember, relationships are like farts; push too hard and things may just get messy.
