The fact that a group of dedicated designers and engineers, within an admittedly dysfunctional company, could create the Giorgio platform and the two marvelous models they used it for, is very encouraging. Corporations that grow large and are subsidized by politicians to supposedly create jobs, is never a place to look for excellence, efficiency and innovation, but Alfa in its current state has delivered two superb cars - an amazing sedan and a market perfect SUV - and I for one am grateful to be able to return to the brand. I grew up in a world in the 60s and 70s in South Africa, where Alfa was a prestige brand and they had a local factory too, so there were a lot of them. My last Alfa of that era was an Alfetta GTV with a four cylinder engine, essentially the same car as the six cylinder GTV sold in the USA. It was a glorious car and drew admiration and compliments all the time. I moved to the USA in the mid 80's and Alfa was a ghost. They launched the 164 around that time and it was a lovely car but the same dealer issues the are so prevalent now were even more magnified and the brand simply had no chance to survive against the Japanese and Germans. It's quite Ironic that the AXIS powers of WW II became the dominant car makers, and just like WW II they screwed their Italian counterpart. Thankfully the brand returned to the US and we now have three new Alfas - a 2018 Stelvio Lusso a 2019 Giulia Ti Sport and a 2020 G Quad. we love them all and at this point I'm delighted to be rid of the the Germans we had for so many years before. I hope they can sort out the dealer issues and maintain Alfa as a Halo brand for the Stellantis group. I don't want to go back to staid and boring at this time of my life.
