The Alfa Romeo 4C has few competitors, and none of them are really direct.
The closest would be a Mazda Miata, which is also a roadster.
In terms of practicality, the MX-5 Miata is hugely more livable than the 4C but it's nowhere near as fun.
(It's also much less expensive than the 4C.) Typical two-seaters such as the Corvette and Jaguar F-Type come to mind, but those muscle cars don't have the same kind of connection to the road.
Perhaps the Porsche 718 is the most direct competitor, in price and in capability, and we'd be hard-pressed to talk someone out of buying a new 718.
The BMW i8 is an equally rare sight on the road as the 4C, and we suspect buyers of both are looking for their 5th or 6th cars.
Congratulations on your great success.
