I've driven the GT86 and the noses are nothing alike. Same thing about the M4. Apart that they are sedan/saloon car type bodies designed within current European regulations, they are nothing alike. The Alfa is much more agressively styled if you look closely. Also before you start, the rear end has a reference to the Alfa 156, the last sedan/saloon car to be fully designed from the ground up by Alfa's 'skunkworks'... until this Gulia.
