Alfa Romeo CEO Harald Wester expects the firm to meet or even exceed its target of a fivefold increase in global sales over the next four years.
By 2014, Alfa Romeo hopes to be selling 500,000 units a year; in 2009, it sold just over 100,000 units.
Wester told Auto News Europe that the ambitious growth in sales will likely be helped by a number of new model launches in the next four years.
He said the Mito is to get a five-door variant, while the 159 saloon and estate are being replaced by the Giulia. The Giulietta, replacing the 147, reaches showrooms in July.
A new Spider, and two SUVs are also planned, according to Wester.
Wester hopes that new, closer ties with Chrysler following its purchase by Fiat in 2009 will also help Alfa to capitalise on economies of scale within the new partnership.
