Alfa Romeo enthusiast site, ClubAlfa reports that the Italian automaker could have more models up their sleeves as they continue to overhaul their current lineup.

We already know of rumors floating about of at least one crossover due from the company in order to grab a piece of the hottest pie in the automotive market at the moment and for the predicted future. But apparently, Alfa’s also working on two additional crossovers to supplement their first one, and both are rumored to be loosely based off of the new Giulia sedan.

The idea is to have one premium crossover (most likely to compete with the likes of the BMW X5 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE), a smaller version (for the BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC) and an entry-level model, for the market currently being led by the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA, and so-on.

On the flipside of things, to make sure Alfa Romeo continues to expand their presence in nearly all things automotive, ClubAlfa also reports that Alfa Romeo’s original factory racing team, Alfa Corse, could make a triumphant return.

Alfa Corse was responsible for many famous racing cars, mainly in touring car racing, to produce legendary competitors such as the 155 GTA from the 1990s. Since 1996, after Alfa Romeo withdrew from the world-famous DTM challenge, they merged with with an independent firm called Nordauto Engineering and has since remained rather dormant.
