The two brands are run by the same chief executive (Harald Wester), and are tipped to partner on the production of the Alfa 4C, which could spawn more powerful version for Maserati. These models would join a revitalized range for Alfa Romeo that is set to also include the new Giulia sedan (replacing the old 159) and the new Spider being developed together with Mazda
's next MX-5 Miata. Marchionne refused to confirm if an Alfa crossover was in the works, but did indicate that if such a model were to be built, it would be built in Italy - unlike the new Maserati Levante that will be produced by Jeep
in the United States.
