They have said that they're considering another Alpine (which they've said a few times in the last decade), but if they go ahead and manufacture then it may be a 'RenaultSport' rather than an Alpine.
Having the association with Nissan (and therefore the Z350) should make it 'more likely' to happen, but we'll see.
Renault have never had a problem selling sports cars (or large cars) in 'continental europe'. It's only here where they have a problem, but their image has improved over the last few years (as shown by the number of Renault Car Clubs around -up until 1990 your only option was the Renault Owners Club).
Currently in Alpineandy's garage:
Safrane 2.5dt, Alpine A110 1300 and Honda XL650
