    The Fiat 124 Spider's future is uncertain

    Earlier this month, Fiat brand CEO Olivier Francois explained to Autocar that Fiat would re-focus on “the right balance between the two dimensions: the Fiat 500 family and family transportation. There will be no big cars, no premium cars, no sporty cars because they have no legitimacy. We will...

    2017 Fiat 124 Spider: Is This The Best Miata Ever?

    At the recent New York Auto Show, Fiat Chrysler unveiled the quickest and most powerful production car it has ever built, the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon. This isn't the first time that Chrysler has used the Demon name -- it first appeared on a variant of the early-1970s Dart and then again on...

    2017 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth Review

    After getting a taste of the Lusso version last year and naming it our favorite car of 2016 we finally got a chance to savor the Abarth version. The 124 Spider Abarth gets a small bump in power over the lesser models putting out 164 hp @ 5500 rpm and 184 lb-ft @ 2500 rpm. The Fiat 124 Spider...

    2017 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth wins Motor Trend's Leftovers Challenge

    When it comes to cars, we all have our preferences. We could argue about the relative merits of a turbo engine's midrange torque versus a naturally aspirated engine's instant response. Or whether steering precision is more important than feedback at the wheel. But there's one thing that you...

    Abarth 124 Spider Abarth Tuned by Madness Autoworks

    The Fiata is more than just a Mazda MX-5 Miata with Fiat badging and a different engine. The go-faster Abarth variant, for example, is an idea more powerful than its Japanese sibling. But at the end of the day, the 124 Spider can be further improved. Tuning always comes to the help of owners...

    The Top Gear car review: 124 Spider Abarth

    Overview Abarth makes a faster Fiat. So to create the car you see here, the Abarth 124 Spider, you might assume the starting point was Fiat's 124 Spider. And you'd be right. But that's not the start of the story, because Fiat's starting point was the Mazda MX-5. We apologise if this is familiar...

    This year's Concorso Italiano, Monterey Car Week's Italian-only vehicle affair, was preceded by an announcement on behalf of Fiat and Bondurant Racing School.

    2017 Fiat 124 Spider

    It's not easy when something you love changes, but there's also no such thing as perfect. For as much as we love the new Mazda Miata, after a two-hour slog down I-5 to San Diego in one with the top up, we were thinking earplugs would've been a good idea. We were on our way to drive its sister...

    2017 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth vs. 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club

    If buying an Italian car made in Japan sounds absurdly Fellini-esque, it's exactly the scene now unfolding at Fiat dealerships. Fiat's new 124 Spider is made in a Mazda plant in Hiroshima, on the same assembly line as the MX-5 Miata. Odd though it may sound, there's precedent. Legend has it that...
