Renault's design boss has been speaking at the Moscow Motor Show about the potential of a range of Alpine cars in the future.
According to Autocar, the Senior Vice President of Renault Corporate Design Laurens van den Acker commented that the development of the sporty Renault was in the latter stages of development.
"As with many things we need to have a good business first. We all love Alpines but we all want to make money as well. Let's get the first car right and then I hope I can start doing Alpines for the rest of my life," explained van den Acker to the car magazine.
However, any clues to what the Alpine will look like are still unknown as Autocar quoted Renault officials saying it will not look anything like the 2012 concept.
He went on to say: "I've been a bit cagey to talk too much about it. Sports cars are an endangered species there are always 10 reasons not to do it."
Renaultsport boss Patrice Ratti added this this car will be "more about driving pleasure than pure power".
It's been a sporty couple of weeks for Renault who recently revealed the R.S. 01.
The RS 0.1 uses a modified 3.8-litre V6 twin-turbo from the Nissan GT-R. In the RS 01, the engine delivers more than 493bhp and 600Nm of torque.
However, this will only be available for those competing in the new Renaultsport Trophy at the World Series by Renault.
