The Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe is dead, at least according Motor Authority’s conversation with Alfa product manager Danny Britt. It looks like its topless stablemate, the 4C Spider, will stick around for a while longer, but will sport a minor price hike for the next model year. While we’re excited that the 4C isn’t completely leaving Alfa’s lineup, we’re sad that the more track-focused coupe is headed out to pasture.

Track rats will also miss the formerly available Track Package that Alfa offered on the 4C, but can still technically grab all the goodies individually on the option sheet. That means if you still want the larger front and rear stabilizer bars, 19-inch aluminum wheels, Pirelli P-Zero AR rubber and high-performance shock absorbers, they’re available -- just not in one easily checked option box.

The 2019 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider does offer one new standard feature -- a backup camera. Other than that, the two-seater Alfa is largely unchanged.

If you were holding out for a brand spanking new Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe, it looks like now is the time to buy. If you’re on a budget, too, the coupe version of the 4C marked an entry point for Alfa’s two-seater and started at a digestible $57,495 -- about $10K cheaper than a base 4C Spider. If you have to wait, it looks like the 4C Coupe will still be sold in other parts of the world, just not Canada and the United States.
