I'm referring to the Alfa Romeo 4C. It's coming to the US. The $70.000 is the launch price after which it will sell for $55.000. Probably pretty close to what we always wanted the Fiero to be. Except for the price and the fact that most of us would prefer an American version.

You must have missed the Corvette thread that got moved to the O/T.

Here, I'll even quote myself from that other thread....and look I mentioned the Alfa:

Just like those people who make multiple threads about the new Alfa Romeo......once again, not a Fiero but because they hear mid-engine, they think it's related to the Fiero.

The Lotus Elise has been out for a long time now, and the used ones are cheap enough. Its a Fiero made by a non-big-3 car company that has a focus and passion rather than GM's compromise culture.

I agree with IMSA GT on this one... this isn't a discussion about Fiero's, so it doesn't belong in Fiero Chat.

I certainly hope to have less than $70K in my Fiero by the time I make it a modern Fiero.

And it will actually still be a Fiero, not an Alfa or Corvette or Lotus or whatever else.

If it wasn't made by Pontiac, doesn't have a Fiero badge, and doesn't have a 1G2P (or 1G2A for 1984) VIN code, it's not a Fiero.

Sorry I started a thread that people are upset about. I am interested in all mid engine cars not just Fieros. They will never make another Fiero so I focus on the only other possibilities which include the Elise, the mid engine Corvette and the Alfa Romeo. Since it is determined that this post is not Fiero related it's fine with me if it is removed.

Where's your post about how this thread isn't about Fieros so it should be moved?
"There is an 'Other Car' Section for that"

Be consistent man, come on.

If I want a modern interpretation of a Fiero, I'll buy an NSX.

I see what you mean. The old one right? Me being a tree hugger and having taken a ride in a Tesla roadster that's where I'm leaning. Now they are offering a battery upgrade that gives a 400 mile range and being a revolutionary limited production vehicle I'm predicting that it will be a very collectible car. I can't help thinking that the next Tesla roadster will be even better though with the batteries in the floorboard. I hope the new one will be as good looking as the original which I liked even more than the Elise.

Don't forget the Porsche BoxsterS, now with the 3.4L and 315HP.
Yeh, it's Gernam, but mid engine and alot of fun to drive. PDK shifting,
variable suspension, two trunks, etc, etc. You can get a used one for
approx 15 - 20K.

Technically, my truck is mid-engine too. The engine is behind the front axle and forward of the rear axle. So GMT800/900 trucks are game too right?

Guys, The thread is about a Fiero replacement. All I'm stating is that
they are both mid engine and both fun to drive.

I would completely agree. I think there are definitely some similar characteristics between the 1990 Fiero Prototype and the 1991 NSX. Had the Fiero production continue I think it would have eventually transformed into a higher end car to compete with NSX sales.
