Finalmente! More on Alfa Romeo's US Return

AutoWeek bares Alfa Romeo's plan to return to the states in time for the company's centennial in 2010. As has been reported, Alfa is teaming up with Maserati on development — sharing parts and to save costs, and leveraging Maserati's US sales network to sell Alfas. Models on the way? Glad you asked:

· 159—Facelifted version of current model arrives in U.S. in late 2009. All new: 2012
· Brera—Facelifted version of current model arrives in U.S. in late 2009. All new: 2013
· Spider—Facelifted version of all-new model arrives in U.S. in late 2009. All new: 2013
· Kamal—Compact SUV inspired by the Kamal concept goes up against the BMW X3 in 2011
· Sprint—Future uncertain for entry-level coupe seen as a spiritual successor to the Alfa Sud Sprint, developed under the internal codename Racer. Earliest arrival: 2011
· 169—Crossover replacement for recently discontinued 166 due in 2012
· 147—Entry level model currently not planned for sale in North America

Raise your grappa glasses — and here's hoping for more rear-drives in Alfa's future.
