Report: Alfa Romeo-Mazda Miata MX-5 collaboration in the can, to be a Fiat Abarth instead

Some rumors in the past suggested that a new Alfa Romeo Spider was going to be born, being based off of the all-new 2016 Mazda Miata MX-5.

But now, apparently that’s in the can, according to CAR in the UK. However, the collaboration overall between Mazda and Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles isn’t all over either as Mazda’s Miata will instead be used as a new Fiat Spider, which is in line with past reports of Mazda and Fiat announcing a joint sports car project in May of 2012.

According to CAR, who spoke with Alfa Romeo’s brand head, Harald Wester, the Mazda Miata/Fiat collaboration would be a Fiat under the Abarth brand, raising the possibility of a Fiat Barchetta successor, or even a standalone Abarth model.
