    How come July has seen a drop in several countries? Especially noticeable in Italy.

    July and August are slow sales months in Italy.

    Most of Europe is on vacation in August. Try to get a part during that time.

    maybe, did not see the same slowdown on Stelvio, though...

    PS: whats the declared target for Giulia, volumewise?
    SM had gone public with the 400K Alfa's by 2018, then shifted to 2020. But that was for the whole brand.

    What were the numbers for the Giulia only? So far it seems its best month was at 4500, which would mean approx. 50K/year. Add about as many Stelvio's , approx. 60-70K Giulietta's , and the odd 4C, we're a long way away from the 400K mark.

    More US and China dealers and steeper production numbers can't come fast enough

    Their target was 400k with a full range. Lets say they sell 50k Giulias annualy, 60-70k Stelvios, 80K compact SUVs, 80k Giuliettas, 50K full-size SUVs, 30k full-size sedans, and they would get close to 350k... Add some specialty vehicles (maybe a 4-Series competitor, a station wagon) and you could get to 400k.

    l think the Guilia is doing ok. It is at least outselling the Jag XE almost two to one in Europe;)

    Yes, I think so too. FCA is actually beating Jaguar... The Maserati Ghibli sells more than the XF in the US... The Giulia beats the XE in Europe.
    Lets see what's the sales ceiling of the Stelvio.

    They are being very very taut with capacity-utilization for Alfa Romeo: the idea being to be as capital-investment-efficient as possible, with the best possible 'operating leverage' given the high commonization enabled by the Giorgio architecture close-family ('platform'.)

    The entire exercize is being executed with the clear aim of a rapid attainment of positive ebitda contributions from the new Alfa-s, with good monies being spent instead/also on marketing/advertizing/PR and all the numerous new (shared with Jeep, Fiat or Maserati) dealerships. Latest by Q1 2018 for those positive contributions. The flip side of that would, of course, be a slower new-model cadence (one a year through to 2020, not counting a 'speciality'/sportscar model twinned say to a new Maserati and/or a Ferrari (Dino?)) i.e., a c-cuv, and e-cuv and an e-sedan? Plus a new Giulietta?

    I'm hoping it grows enough that they will reconsider bringing manual transmission models to the US :).

    Well, I think everyone wants Alfa to fulfill expectations, it looks like they are moving in the right direction, maybe not as quickly as hoped, but moving along. Stelvio is certainly helping the numbers.

    That is the first one that I saw in the wild as well. The next day I saw my second one in the wild, and it was red. Kind of impressive for the area that I am living in now.
