Get your Alfa 4c coupes while you can

Looks like the rumors of the end of the production this year is true. Dealers will not be receiving any 2018 coupe models.

Spiders will still be available but my guess is they will wind down the inventory also as they move into more Guilia sales.

They were shooting for 2500-3500 4C's a year. How many have they built so far?

I bought my coupe new about 4 months ago and supply was already tight if you wanted a particular color etc Will be interesting to see where the prices go from here. Kudos again to Alfa for having the courage to build the car. It's a fun and somewhat unique toy that punches above its weight.

Not that many. I'll look for the link on the 4C forums for the production numbers to date.

5,991 as of the end of April. Notice the difference in the projected to what they actually produced.

I don't follow these too closely, but it looks to be a few K over MMR or wholesale pricing.

That pretty low considering what they were planning but still not something I would invest in yet. It will take 10 years or more for these to go up in value based on other previous great Italian car price histories. They will continue to drop in value as to many were made. Enjoy them for the cars they are, not for their value. I have seen new Spiders discounted. And I have seen several good 4C's in the mid 40's already.

I did pretty well price wise on my 2016 (which was bought when dealers already had 2017's), and mine had all the options I wanted, though I did not know they had audio controls on the steering wheel on any car (that one says it does). I did not buy it for an investment I bought it to mod it and drive it, just like any of my cars. I'm too old to think about what something will be worth after 20 years.

Buy the car to enjoy, not an investment. Cars are to enjoy and a hobby, not an investment. That is how I see it.

The car makes such a racket that, to me, the audio system is pretty superfluous. Did any of the 4Cs come with steering wheel controls for the "entertainment system"?

Nope.

Actually I listen to the radio on the car. But using the phone is pretty difficult.

I have an LE with the awful Parrot. The interface is just terrible.

I do like the soothing voice of the parrot voice commands. But otherwise it is useless.

The 4C Coupé has been registered with the NHTSA for the 2018 Model Year, and the official USA web site has the 2018 4C Coupé Owners Manual available for download.

As far as I know, the 4C Coupe can't be continued due to new regulations which require air bags in the A pillar. Either Alfa Romeo got an exempt status or they're introducing air bags in the A pillars.

Try ordering one.

You can't if the car is being built after October.

The Alfa website is about as reliable as most US news agencies.

Dealers are being told don't expect any more coupes. They aren't going to make it official as they will be forced to mark them down even further.
