    Let's not forget that this is also the first years run of the car. I remember when the Dodge Challenger was first reintroduced with a 5000 car 'limited run' in 2008. I wanted one soooo bad. Unfortunately, they were in short supply and dealers were price gouging the hell out of them. Hell, they tried to do the same thing with the Abarth to some extent.

    Boy am I glad I waited because the rich suckers who bought it at a ridiculous premium in 08 got hosed when production was ramped up in 09. I ended up getting a used one with 7K on it for a fraction of the price in 2009. Thank you foolish rich people for paying too much and taking that huge a** 1st owner deprecation hit for me.

They don't care to satisfy this fact with this vehicle, they only aim to create the desirability factor. This will eventually pull in both those people who can afford a vehicle with that price tag, as well as those who would like a more affordable vehicle of the same make in appreciation of the perceived engineering, build quality, performance, status, etc.
    I don't want to spend $50,000 on HOUSING. I'm now looking at used FEMA trailers. Locally, even if they sell a trailer for one hundred dollars, they have a space rent of nearly 2,000 a month. I just can't afford it. Most trailers are on someone's land, and I'd still get financially pillaged via the space rent.

    For the Alfas, let's look at comparables. The current Miata softtop is $24,000 and the hardtop is $29,000 (plus plus plus the usual pluses). Any NEW vehicle, like the Alfa/Mazda twins, will be MORE expensive. No bargains to be found there.

    The article on the Guilia ( http://www.fiat500usaforum.com/showt...-%28article%29 ) says right at the top of the article "Italian brand aiming for luxury status with new Giulia mid-size sedan."

    It goes on to say "The Giulia is expected to be powered by a 1.7-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with about 177kW in many markets, while the US-market model will likely borrow a Chrysler-soured Pentastar 3.6-litre V6 engine, as seen in the Chrysler 300. As a product of the new underpinnings, it will likely be offered in both rear- and all-wheel-drive.

    A new large sedan based on the Chrysler 300 and Maserati Ghibli to rival the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class and a family SUV spin-off will likely follow from late 2015."

    It won't be cheap. $35,000 is an estimate: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/alfa-ro...date-and-price

    Again, plus plus plus all the usual pluses.

    So there won't be any small Alfa with an entry level price, nor will there be a SMALL 4 seater. The sedans will be midsize. And none of the vehicles will have the excellent gas mileage as found with the TwinAir.

    I spoke to the owner of the dealer where I got my car. He said the 4C will be there!

    Cars have arrived this week at a handful of dealers across the country.

    And yes, this was a botched launch.
