Owning an Alfa Romeo was once a dream on par with marrying a supermodel. Well, this spring you can actually get lucky – with the car. At a base price of $54,000, the Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe competes with affordable sports cars like the Corvette and Porsche Cayman. But this wedge of energy holds its own with supercar-like credentials. It's powered by a rambunctious, 237-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder, but the 4C specializes in lithe moves rather than brute force: It has a carbon-fiber tub and a curb weight so feathery (around 2,000 pounds) that the rack-and-pinion steering doesn't even need power assist.
