Fiat-Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne remains open to an Alfa Romeo-badged version of the upcoming Maserati Ghibli large sedan, new reports suggest.

According to industry site Automotive News Europe, Marchionne would not dismiss the possibility of such a model, despite previously describing it as a low priority for Alfa.

On the topic of a full-size, rear-wheel drive sedan - not seen since the 75 model - and whether it could be related to the Ghibli, the always-outspoken Marchionne offered a glimpse of what might lay ahead.

“If there were to be a rear-drive Alfa, it undoubtedly would come from an architecture that is shared with Maserati. And it would be built together with Maserati in Turin”, he said.

He added that such a model would be large enough to suit chauffeur-driven Chinese tastes - a priority for most carmakers as the Chinese market continues to grow.

The word ‘would’ is key here, as it relegates Marchionne’s response to purely theoretical, but it suggests significant consideration has at least been given to a model rivalling the Ghibli’s Mercedes-Benz E-Class/BMW 5 Series targets.

In the meantime though, Alfa is focused on its long awaited re-entry to the US market, which reportedly hinges on the launches of the 159-replacing Giulia sedan, 4C sports car, and Mazda MX-5-based Spider roadster.

As indicated by earlier reports, this points to a late 2013 or early 2014 return to US soil for the historic Italian nameplate.
