Alfa Romeo is preparing a sports coupe model

The world focuses on smaller autos, but... it`s fun. Alfa Romeo, for example, will not be using only the MiTo platform for making the final hot hatch MiTo GTA unit, but will also use now the little guy like base for a brand new sports coupe model.

Rumored to be named the Junior (MiTo's original name), the new coupe will be sharing pieces with Lancia’s rebirth (possible) of the Fulvia. Butt although Junior is not expected getting the 1.8-liter turbocharged 240bhp engine of the MiTo GTA, it should get about 1.4-liter turbo 4 cylinder producing 130 hp.

If the present economy does not kill off the little coupe of Alfa, by 2011 it may be in Europe on the streets. If we're lucky (and this 500 does good in the America,) Fiat will be dropping maybe a few Junior units to North America on boat.
