How many Alfa Romeo Spiders were made?

My dad is the proud owner of a 2002 Alfa Romeo Type 916 Spider, which he bought brand new when it was released. He wants to buy another one, but he’s having a hard time finding any. Is this a rare car? How many Alfa Romeo Spiders were made?

Let’s break down how many Alfa Romeo Spider were made by production numbers by broad generations:
  • 1954 to 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider: 14,300 (and an additional 2,796 Spider Veloce models)
  • 1966 to 1993 Type 105/115 Spiders: 124,104
  • 1995 to 2006 Type 916 Spiders: 39,088
  • 2006 to 2010 Type 939 Spiders: 12,488
The Alfa Romeo 916 Spiders are among the most underrated sports cars. Not many proper sports cars are tugged along by a front-wheel drive system, and certainly not with 3.2-liter V6 engines under the hood.
Your dad’s specific model year, the 2002 Alfa Romeo Type 916 Spider, will likely be hard to find: only 2,101 were built that year. The most rare trims in 2002 include the 2.0 JTS (one built) and the 3.2 24V (three built).
Alfa Romeo has used the “Spider” branding on 4C and 8C sports cars as well, though most people think of these four aforementioned eras—the Giulietta, the 105/115, the 916, and 939—when they think of an Alfa Romeo Spider.
