It's been a while since Alfa Romeo cars were sold in the U.S., but the brand is back with a head-turning new coupe that debuted at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. After many delays, Alfa Romeo says the 2015 4C will go on sale in June.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Video

For the first time in nearly two decades, Alfa Romeo returns to the U.S. with the 4C, a mid-engine, two-seat sports coupe, bringing with it an iconic reputation — and allusions to '90s R&B one-hit wonders by Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays. The 4C, debuting at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, carries the brand's signature grille, carbon-fiber accents, a 237-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder and scant interior comforts. Mays says you can expect the 4C to hit dealerships in late June with a price starting around $54,000. For now, watch the video above for Mays' Montell Jordan references, which are priceless.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C: First Look

2015-alfa--4c

Competes with: Porsche 911, Jaguar F-Type

Looks like: It's stunning and resembles a smaller, sleeker version of Alfa's limited-production 8C Competizione

Drivetrain: All-aluminum, 237-horsepower, turbocharged 1.75-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission

Hits dealerships: The limited-production Launch Edition model goes on sale first in June, followed by the regular 4C

After many, many delays, the Alfa Romeo 4C is finally here. We've been hearing about the impending arrival of the compact, lightweight sports coupe, which marks the return of the Alfa Romeo brand to the U.S., since 2010 when parent Fiat announced a 2012 on-sale date. We got a glimpse at a would-be production version last year, but it never went on sale.

Better late than never; the actual production model was just unveiled at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, and the automaker promised a June on-sale date. Two versions will be offered, the 4C and a limited-edition 4C Launch Edition; only 500 of the latter will be available and it will go on sale first.

Alfa Romeo Plans Arrival of 4C for June

Alfa_4C_MFR

The Alfa Romeo 4C has become an auto-industry punch line, a car whose ETA is in perpetual delay — sort of like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's backup-camera mandate. It looks like Alfa will beat NHTSA to the punch: The Detroit News reports that Maserati dealerships will sell the lightweight sports car in June 2014.

Alfa Romeo 4C: First Look

We'll believe it when we see it. Fiat first showed a 4C concept at the 2011 Geneva International Motor Show. A production version bowed two years later with U.S. sales promised sometime in 2013. That didn't happen, but at least this latest announcement keeps with the delay Fiat issued in September 2013. High-performing Fiat dealerships — some of which are standalone dealers, some of which are incorporated into Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram showrooms — will get the car, too, though exact timing remains elusive. Maserati and Alfa Romeo are two subsidiaries of the recently merged Fiat Chrysler Automobile.

Alfa Romeo 4C Delayed, Again

Alfa_4C

Alfa Romeo fans will have to wait nearly a year, at the earliest, before the brand re-enters U.S. showrooms. The Detroit News reports Alfa Romeo, a subsidiary of Italy's Fiat, will not bring the 4C — a sleek, two-seat sports car — to U.S. showrooms until spring 2014.

The announcement represents the latest delay for a brand that's been absent from U.S. showrooms for nearly 20 years. Fiat re-entered the U.S. market after taking an initial stake of then-moribund Chrysler in 2009, and CEO Sergio Marchionne said in 2010 that Alfa would return by 2012. In late 2011, Fiat delayed the brand's reintroduction to 2013, blaming Europe's shaky economy. A production 4C debuted in February 2013, and Fiat said at that time it would sell the car in the U.S. this year.

Alfa Romeo 4C: First Look

130211_AR_4C_01

  • Competes with: Porsche 911, Jaguar F-Type, Lotus Evora
  • Looks like: A smaller, sleeker version of Alfa's limited-production 8C Competizione
  • Drivetrain: Turbocharged 1.7-liter four-cylinder and dual-clutch automatic transmission; rear-wheel drive
  • Hits dealerships: Sometime in 2013

Alfa Romeo left the U.S. in 1995, but in 2009 Chrysler-Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne promised the brand would return. At the time, Marchionne named four cars to arrive by 2013, but Chrysler-Fiat later scrubbed those plans as Europe's economy plunged into recession. Even as recently as January, Marchionne told reporters Alfa wasn't yet ready for its U.S. return.

The postponement was brief. Witness the production 4C, a mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports car based on the concept shown at the 2011 Geneva International Motor Show. It's the first of several new Alfas planned between now and 2016.

The two-seater will debut officially at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show in March, and it arrives in the U.S. — presumably at Chrysler dealerships — sometime this year.
