Cars

Porsche-challenging car revealed from Alpine for 2017

Renault have announced that it will formally revive its Alpine performance brand next year with an all-new sports car closely related to this concept, the Alpine Vision.

It’s a mid-engined two-seat coupé making its public debut at the 2016 Geneva motor show.

According to reports a whole new team and division has been set up within Renault to help launch and develop the Alpine brand, the Motorsport lab that has produced so many great road cars over the years.

We think it’s a clever strategy – with the basic outline of the concept lending itself to all sorts of iterations. We can see a Macan-style mini crosser here, for example. It’s not clear when and where these iterations will launch –

but it’s nice to see Alpine tipping its head back in the game.
