Alfa Romeo and Mazda appear to be growing quite cozy. A contingent of Mazda brass was spotted recently at Fiat’s production facilities in Turin, Italy. This is due, in part, to the fact that Mazda is the only major Japanese manufacturer without a European production facility and Fiat just happens to have some production space that’s not being used. Oh, and did we mention that Alfa is developing a roadster, which we believe will be called Duetto, based on the next-gen Miata (follow the link for a rendering of the Mazda)? That could have something to do with the meeting, too.

Our sources tell us that the next Duetto will be powered by the 1750-cc TBi direct-injected turbo four-cylinder; this engine can produce up to 250 hp. It is long of connecting rod, but very short of stroke—thus, very Alfa. Delivering power to the rear wheels will be a six-speed manual or an available seven-speed dual-clutch automatic with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The Demon may come yet...and with what Chryco is doing, I'd put one in my garage in a heartbeat.

THAT would be an awesome small car....
