The fate of the Alfa Romeo 4C arriving in the United States may very well depend on the outcome of a Chrysler IPO. But whether we get it here or not, Alfa Romeo is said to be working on some upgrades.

According to the latest rumors, the Italian automaker is preparing a racing version of the 4C. Which is all well and good for racing drivers and their teams, but the more tantalizing prospect is that Alfa could in turn develop a hardcore Stradale version for the road. Following a similar formula as Ferrari applied to the 360 Challenge Stradale (not to mention the 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale), Maserati did to the GranTurismo MC Stradale and Lamborghini to the Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale, the 4C Stradale would likely boast more power with even less weight to motivate, along with a stiffer suspension set-up and upgraded brakes to keep it all in check.

There's also word of a more luxurious version on the other end of the spectrum, and a partial roadster version with a removable roof panel like what Porsche once called a "targa." But the better news for aesthetes turned off by the production 4C's lord-of-the-flies headlights is that the Alfa Romeo Centro Stile is reportedly planning on swapping out those controversial units for the (relatively) more conventional look of the concept's (below).

      So will the new headlights be put on it before the US launch? That would be awesome.

      How long will we read about this car before it is actually released? By the time the car hits the roads, the styling will be to far behind, if it is not already.

      That might possibly be the ugliest car I've ever seen. Cheesy vagina grill coupled with bulbous side profile with a side order of space alien eyes.

        Have you never seen a Hyundai Velosturd?

      I hope it takes cues from the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, which is in my opinion, the most beautiful car ever made.

      I have not seen one new Alfa Romeo in twenty years in the USA. Does Alfa Romeo really exist? How do you know?

      How about a proper manual gear box? Come on Alfa, focus on what\'s important.

      Good. Targa = good, convertible = bad.
