We're still waiting on official confirmation for when Alfa Romeo
will put the mid-engined 4C sportscar into production. Autocar projects it will hit showrooms in early 2014. But whenever it does, count one year beyond and look for Alfa to release a convertible version. The mid-engined sports car was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show last year. The production version will combine an all-aluminum, 230-hp turbo four with a carbon-fiber tub, aluminum subframe and sheet-molded composite exterior panels for feather-light 900 kg curb weight.
