First sports auto coming from Renault in 2010

Renault will launch the first of several sports autos inspired by the popular Alpines in 2010.

The Alpine was made between 1960 and 1995; there were always rumors about the come back of the Alpine name.

Patrick Blain – sales and marketing chief said in an interview with the Automobilwoche: `We are planning sports cars again for the future. They are expected to demonstrate Renault`s capacity for engineering performance`.

Renault is not sure about the name, but probably they will go by `Alpine` to brand it.

Blain added that the new auto will be a `radical sports car`, not just a sports variant of a regular one.

Renault will debut 26 new models by late 2009.
