After an absence of more than a decade, Fiat's Alfa Romeo brand is returning to the U.S. market. In a conference call May 3rd, Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne confirmed that he has plans in place to begin distributing Alfa Romeo models in the U.S. through  Maserati's dealer network, possibly as soon as late 2007.

Italiaspeed reports that the U.S. launch models will likely be the upper end of the range - Alfa 159, Brera (shown above) and Spider. And yes, this means that the 8c Competizione is also coming to the U.S.

      I thought I was a sucker for German cars.....the price is extremely unappealing, but you guys know a euro 149 alfa loses 20% of its value a year? off year 0 mile models will probably be discounted to hell. I'm in, I dunno about you guys.

      My first two cars were Alfas. I fondly remember them and always longed for another chance to own one. Soon may be the time. No other car in my experience has the personality those Alfa's had. Than you Fiat. I can't wait!

      I love the 159 Sportwagon. It's got Alfa looks and performance and the practicality that I need. Perfect left brain / right brain car, in Alfa Red of course!

      It'll be nice to have more products with a sense of style that wasn't dictated by focus groups of the lowest common denominator.

      YES! YES! YES!

      The Brera is an absolute beauty that I have wanted to get my hands on for a long time. If they price things right they will find MANY takers.
