Alfa Romeo is planning two more models for the U.S. market.

At the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, the Italian automaker unveiled its 4C Spider but the company has more in the works. Later this year, Alfa Romeo is expected to unveil a midsize sedan that will be followed by a compact SUV in 2016. Both models will be based on rear-wheel drive “Giorgio” platform developed by an engineering team led by former Ferrari managers.
