Alfa Romeo’s U.S. return delayed until 2011

Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione United States

Fiat’s CEO Sergio Marchionne has announced that Alfa Romeo’s return to the United States has been delayed again, this time until 2011. We lost track how many times Alfa Romeo has delayed its comeback to the US, first time it was 2007, then 2008, then late 2009, then 2010 and now 2011. We wonder if they’ll ever make it across the ocean. Of course, we don’t have to tell you the reason for this delay, the global financial crisis, with the United States being hit very hard by it. According to Automotive News, Mr. Marchionne said that “it would be simply crazy investing for returning Alfa in such a depressed U.S. market.” And we have to agree with him.
