I'm sure the list is pages long by now.
I would rather it be an Alfa than a Dodge. But there is no chance they will be honest about the vehicle's origin.

A rule of thumb is if it comes with a 4 banger and it has a domestic badge it's either a rebadged foreign car or a foreign design redesigned for American consumption...

They'll know.
Alfas are not sold here, so what enthusiasts do you know that buy them?

Sure we all lust after the gorgeous 8c that we have seen in the pages of EVO and Car, but that is about it...

The Alfa 8C was sold in the USA... a whopping 90 of them were brought to the USA in 2008.

1. You have a few Top Gear episodes to catch up on.

2. They were sold here for about 60 years, and so at the moment, only an enthusiast would buy one...

Default Rumour Mill: A New Dodge Hornet Is On The Way -

Rumour Mill: A New Dodge Hornet Is On The Way

It will be a small SUV destined for North America.

Power will come from a turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine.

It will be assembled alongside the upcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale.

There’s very little to go on with this story. Even so, the idea that Stellantis is preparing a small assumingly performance-oriented SUV for Dodge sounds about right. As of today, Dodge’s product line is in desperate need of a boost of new vehicles and it seems as though it will come in the form of a new SUV to be called Hornet.

Back in 2006, Dodge introduced the Hornet Concept as a 5-door MPV-style compact people with attitude. Obviously, the Hornet never saw production however that might change in the near future. The group will begin assembling both the Fiat Panda and Alfa Romeo Tonale on the same assembly line in the Pomigliano D’Arco (Naples) plant.

Alfa Romeo Tonale Introduction Delayed For Failing To Impress CEO
The rumour, shared by Passion For Italian Cars, says that the Dodge Hornet will be assembled alongside the others. The Hornet will be derived from the Panda and Tonal leading us to believe that it will be a small SUV, especially if it will be reserved for the North American market.

Evidence to support to coming of the Hornet also comes from the fact that Dodge trademarked the name back in March of 2011.

If I would have randomly come across that picture I would have thought it was a concept car from 2008. What the hell are they thinking???

There are three distinctly different SRT4 Neons in my area that I regularly see - one is in really good shape, almost showroom perfect, unmodified except maybe for a catback, but it's not obnoxious.
The second has poorly repaired rusted out/rolled/pulled quarters, it's slammed with a loud exhaust, stretched tires and has windshield stickers, you know the ones, in cursive, that say things like "low life" or "stance nation" and the obligatory instagram sticker on the drivers side rear window; the third one looks like the pep-boys took turns throwing up on it, I avert my eyes every time I see the latter two examples.
There is also one SRT-4 Caliber in my area, surprisingly unmolested and in really good shape.
