Alfa Romeo 4C--Front Clip

2017 Alfa Romeo 4C

For better and for worse, the Alfa Romeo 4C is an unforgettable car. No regular 2017 production vehicle offers a purer, more immersive driving experience—or demands as much tolerance from its occupants for high NVH levels and other comfort shortcomings. You can check out our recent road-test experiences with the 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C here and here, but we thought that the outrageous bodywork, the unusual ergonomics, and the many interesting details of our latest 4C tester deserved a closer look. Check out our pics and video below.

2017 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe

While intimately familiar with fishing (that’s a public fish-cleaning station in the background), the good people of Port Washington, Wisconsin, seemed far less familiar with Italian exotics — at least if the stares and figure-pointing the 4C endured was any indication.

Although hardly a sensible car, if you accept the Alfa Romeo 4C as a bargain-priced exotic, its limitations become a lot easier to overlook.

First Spin Nobody can accuse Alfa Romeo of not taking this seriously.

Two years ago – after a 20-year absence – the Italian automaker dipped its toe into U.S. waters again with the highly strung 4C sports car, a pseudo “exotic” 2-seater with great appeal but a limited audience.

2016 LA Auto Show LogoPerhaps because it’s the first major auto show of the season (and perhaps because it’s set, of course, in California – the tail that wags the fashion dog), the Los Angeles Auto Show often establishes trends later followed at the other major shows.

2017 NIssan Rogue

Nissan North America Chairman Jose Munoz introduces the refreshed 2017 Rogue on a 7th-floor open parking deck in Miami.

Miami moved its annual auto show from November to early September this year, making it the first show of the new-car selling season. In many cases, that gives visitors (and that includes the press during preview days) their first views of the 2017 models. Below are some of the highlights from Miami.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

At a starting price of about $55,000, the Alfa Romeo 4C coupe may seem like a rather expensive sports car. But if viewed as an exotic — which is how many onlookers see it — it’s a bona fide bargain.

One of the stumbling blocks to justifying a joyriding car is the cost of licensing and insuring something you’re only going to drive occasionally. But both of those expenses can be greatly reduced by buying a “classic.”

In the eyes of many insurance companies and state licensing agencies, a car becomes a classic once it hits 25 years of age. To mark that occasion, they often give those cars extraordinary discounts; in fact, it usually costs a fraction as much to license and insure a 25-year-old car as it does a 24-year-old one.
