Alfa Romeo is preparing a two-door version of its Giulia sedan for the Geneva motor show, according to Australia’s The move makes sense for Alfa — the Giulia coupe would compete directly with the Audi A5, BMW 4-series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupes.

If true, this would be the third variant to roll off the automaker’s Giorgio platform — the Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV being the other two. A convertible is also said to be in the works. Alfa has promised eight models based off the Giorgio platform by 2020.

Power will likely come from the existing stable of Giulia sedan powertrains. Expect to see a 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 276 hp and the 505-hp 2.9-liter V6 found in the Quadrifoglio. The rest of the world will also have a 2.2-liter diesel available. 

The Sprint nameplate could make a comeback for the Giulia coupe, which is a moniker the two-door version of the model originally wore in the early 1960s. As we get closer to the Geneva motor show, we expect more details to solidify.
