Next Renault Alpine could be developed in cooperation with Caterham

Renault Alpine A110-50 Concept

There are some whispers spreading around on the good ol’ Net that Renault and Caterham may be teaming up to facilitate the return of the Alpine name. The ball has already started rolling with the introduction of the Renault Alpine A110-50 Concept , but a French report is stating that this team effort will benefit the lineups of both manufacturers.

Renault’s goal is to create a light and agile Alpine which will be easier with the help of a smaller company, while Caterham Caterham is looking to build a new range-topping sports car that will be made possible with the knowledge provided by a larger, more experienced manufacturer. It’s the classic, "You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours" scenario. What we’ll get out of it is a light rear-engined Alpine priced somewhere between $44,000 to $50,000 which is expected to be unveiled sometime in 2015 .

"We’ve had talks with potential partners," said Carlos Tavares, Renault’s Chief Operating Officer in a previous interview. "We’ll decide whether or not to revive Alpine before the end of this year, but I think there’s a good chance that a new Alpine will see the light of day."

I like the image they have on the article. Is this the next Alpine? If it does, I will totally like it on its overall.

Wow if they lock this collaboration among them, I’m sure Alpine will be at its most-favored response.

Renault and Caterham must do it right to catch people’s attention or else all of their efforts in teaming would be wasted.
