Alpine wants to be like Porsche


We are not sure everyone remembers, but Porsche has always declared that besides the 911, all their sports cars are being built to be at the edge. Alpine is coming fast and is trying to follow the success of the Porsche models. We are not sure they will make it as the sports car brand has been, for a long time, in a bad place. Now, the specialists have arrived with the A110-50 concept which had to be very good to impress racing enthusiasts. The car was really good-looking, but it is not enough to ensure the success of the re-born Alpine brand. What they need to do is follow the pleasant impression of the concept with an impressive car that also keeps faithful to its heritage.



Otherwise, the model might be kicked off and rejected by fans. The new model will go on sale in 2016 together with the Alfa Romeo 4C and the Porsche Cayman. Of course, this only means that the joint effort between Caterham and Renault to build cars needs to go great so that fans receive what they have hoped and asked for. Carlos Tavares, Renault Boss said that when it comes to the layout of the platform, engine and transmission, everything is decided, but, of course, they did not offer any numbers.



Different sources indicate the fact that the model will receive power from a reworked version of the 1.6-liter turbo that powers the Clio RS. All power will be sent to the rear wheels through an improved dual clutch transmission. the engineers want to obtain a light and fun car in the end and make it look a lot like its predecessor from the 1970s, the original A110 capable of generating 160 PS. You can take a look in the photo gallery and see what we are talking about. The price will be close to EUR59.000, which means $77.000 and GBP50.000. These are all details revealed for now on the plans Alpine has for the next few years.
