Fiat Delays Alfa Romeo’s U.S. Return to 2014’s Second Quarter

Fiat SpA, the Italian automaker that controls Chrysler Group LLC, is delaying the return of its Alfa Romeo brand to the U.S. until the second quarter of 2014, a Chrysler spokesman said.

Sergio Marchionne, chief executive officer of Fiat and Chrysler, told reporters in Detroit in January that the U.S. automaker would start selling the compact 4C sports car this year. Marchionne wants to revive the premium brand, long a symbol of Italian style and performance, and take it global.
