According to AutoCar the future Alfa Romeo 169 could be designed by the future owner of Jaguar and Land Rover. Sergio Marchionne, Fiat’s dynamic CEO said that the new owner could provide the key ingredient for a “stunning” rear-drive Alfa 169.
"We have a stunning design for the 169, and we know how to build a rear-drive platform for it,” Marchionne explained. “But we would rather buy a suitable platform from one of our competitors to be more cost competitive. We have talks under way with different manufacturers, and I expect a final decision in January."
