Of all the upcoming sports cars that are scheduled to be released in the coming year, the Alfa Romeo 4C probably tops our list as one of our most eagerly anticipated releases. But even with the coupe not scheduled to make its debut until next year, a source has already told Autocar that Alfa Romeo is planning on building a convertible version of the 4C.

While no exact details were shared on the future of the convertible 4C, it does give indication as to the investments Alfa Romeo is putting on the model, which is being touted as the brand’s halo model that will spearhead Alfa’s reinvention as a company.

The coupe version of the 4C is powered by a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine that delivers a total of 296 horsepower. The convertible model will likely carry the same powertrain, although a few modifications to the car’s body will most likely be in order. Of note is the roof mechanism that will most likely be installed, which could add some weight to the car.

Rest assured, more details will follow as soon as new information becomes available.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Can you imagine guys what this car would look like if they make it convertible?! I think it’s not a good idea.

Getting a convertible version in this small vehicle is quite a good idea. The size will surely fit the top down style.

It surprises me to learn that Alpha Romeo is now competing against the top super car manufacturer. It’s a good start for them.
