Audi and Alfa Romeo in “negotiations”.

audi-tt-alfa-romeo-brera

Has Sergio Marchionne finally buckled?  Is Audi buying Alfa Romeo?  Let’s hope so!

Ward reports:

“Alfa Romeo is at the core of top-level negotiations between Audi and Fiat and might be near to a sale, reliable sources here and in Ingolstadt, Germany, say.  Sources close to both Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne and Audi CEO Rupert Stadler confirm the two are in talks over a major deal.

The top subject reportedly involves the sale of Alfa, but this time not only the brand but Fiat’s Pomigliano assembly plant also is on the table. If the discussions bear fruit, the facility would return to building Alfas under Audi. Pomigliano was built in the late 1960s specifically for Alfa production, but currently makes the Fiat Panda.”

    Can’t say I’m a huge fan of this idea…but I like the fact that it’s Audi. Hmmm…if Alfa’s were as reliable as an Audi…okay I’m about 95% on board with this.

    Additional thoughts: is this Audi’s potential entry to Formula 1? It would be legendary to see that marque up top for the first time since the back-to-back constructor titles in 1950 & 1951!
