Reid Bigland said so in an interview yesterday...
http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2015/02/alfa-romeo-s-3-series-rival-to-go-on-sale-this-year.html“The next Alfa Romeo on the horizon is a mid-size sedan, dimensionally similar to the BMW 3 Series,” Bigland said. And he’s setting lofty expectations for the car. “Just as 4C is superior to BMW, Audi and Porsche from a performance and technological standpoint, the mid-size sedan will be as well.”
Perhaps most shocking is that despite not having even shown a concept of it yet, the car will be on sale by year’s end. “Look for it to arrive in late Q4 of this year,” said Bigland before pausing and adding “late Q4.”
