Renault scraps Alpine brand!

Even though Alpine had been scrapped several years ago, there was a ‘resurrection’ of sorts when Renault was supposedly found to be working on a NEW Alpine model in the last couple of years. Alot of rumours when the original Nissan 350z was released, that Renault would somehow grab one of those Zs, and modify it into an Alpine. That never happened. Recently, the rumours were that Renault was gonna use a smaller rwd sports car being developed by Nissan to share the platform with a new Alpine.  Not any more! RIP Alpine.

If you search round the interwebnetspace, you’ll find plenty of renderings/concepts of what appears to be a ‘new’ A110. Here’s one of them:
