    Fiat's MX-5 Miata-Based Spider Gets A Name

    Fiat's upcoming roadster gets a name

    The Fiat roadster (formally the Alfa Romeo roadster) that is being developed with a bit of help from Mazda has gotten a name. Automotive News Europe reports that the upcoming roadster will wear the 124 Spider name when it launches. This comes from Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne who revealed the name to reporters at the Geneva Motor Show this week.

    The name can trace it roots back to 1966 when it was used on a 2+2 convertible based on the Fiat 124. The original 124 Spider was designed by Pininfarina and come equipped with a variety of engines throughout its life including a 1.4L four-cylinder and 2.0L.

    Marchionne went onto say that the model would be sold worldwide, but didn't reveal a launch window.

    Hopefully it will be more reliable than the Junk Fiat has sold for the last 40 years and during their first attempt in the US. So far, Fiat is striking out with their product lines and quality. I would say shelve this project and put the money into the Transmissions of the Chrysler products to build a reliable item first. Build quality on what they have then build pie in the sky dream cars.

     

    I am not happy with the amount of problems coming out of new Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Ram products and the dismal quality out of the Fiat line right now. They are hurting themselves long term with the garbage they currently sell.

    I have seen a fair bit of trouble out of the saltest chryco products.  Can agree with your sentiment here.
