New Alpine Sports Car Teased in Video

Premiere Edition can now be ordered

Alpine is getting ready to debut its Cayman-fighter. Until then, this video showing the Alpine's sliding skills will have to suffice.

It has been several months since Alpine came out with its Vision concept car, featuring a mid-mounted turbocharged inline-four engine. The rear-drive Alpine could make around 250 hp, and is said to be 660 pounds lighter than the Porsche Cayman. While it may not have a rear-mounted engine like its predecessor, the new Alpine harkens back to the original A110.

Alpine hasn't shown off the car's final sheetmetal, but it is getting a jump start on orders. Alpine's website says the company is taking orders for the "Premiere Edition" model, of which only 1,955 will be created. Available in blue, white, and black, the model is estimated to hit 62 mph in 4.5 seconds, which means it should be about on par with its rival. When we tested a 2014 Cayman S a while back, it was able to hit 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds. We have yet to test a Porsche 718 Cayman with the new turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder.

There isn't any word on price, but it's probably safe to assume commissioning a one-off Ferrari is expensive. Very expensive.
