Seems like Fiat is already working on its new Mazda-based sports car, by producing a hardtop variant within the next year or so. After the Geneva Motorshow were we've seen for the first time the 124 model, we have noticed that the brand is trying to distance from the MX-5 automobile, with a full production hardcore coupe.
We've been told that a fixed-roof 124 is being developed right now in Italy, and it could be revealed sooner next year. This time the car won't be based around the Mazda MX-5 RF's retractable hardtop and will instead be designed solely as a coupe from the get-go. We don't know anything about the engine it's gonna have, it could be a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine or the Abarth 178bhp unit, but this model could be the next top sports car in the automotive market.
Do you think there might be some other reasons why Fiat Chrysler Automobile changes the look of this model, into a less like MX-5 automobile? They will differ now not just stylistically but also mechanically. Let's wait for more details now, and see how it's gonna work!
