Swan Song: 1993 Alfa Romeo S4 Spider Veloce – Sold?
July 30, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
1993 ended up being Alfa Romeo’s final year of selling cars in the U.S. until the company’s return nearly twenty years later. By the early nineties, Alfa was trying to sell what was a modernized version of a thirty-year-old design of the Alfa Spider. This green over tan 77k original mile example Romeo Spider is a driver quality example from that final year and was once listed in June 2021 on Craigslist in Ashland, Massachusetts (Boston) for $7,500. Relying on the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a guide shows the private seller has his Spider priced below the #4 ″Fair” (Daily Driver) level of $9,900.
Originally debuted in 1966, Alfa Romeo launched the final S4 Spider series in the U.S. in 1991 with Bosch Motronic electronic fuel injection, full-width body-colored plastic bumper fascias, an electric cooling fan, full-width rear taillights, and on-board diagnostics while eliminating the front under-bumper and rear trunk-lid spoilers of the previous version. Production of the Spider ended in 1993 and while a new front-wheel-drive version launched the following year, Alfa Romeo elected not to import the new car to North America.
We love the color combination on this final-year Spider and while it clearly has some cosmetic issues to contend with, the stack of receipts pictured clearly shows this car has been properly maintained.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“Beautiful 1993 Alfa, low miles 77,000, ice-cold A/C, rare color, no rust kept in garage, clean title, all paperwork of work done since new, has some minor cosmetic issues but is mechanically sound.“
