Mazda/Alpha Romeo Roadster to Enter Production in 2015

If you're a fan of small two-seat roadster's along the lines of the Mazda Miata, Mazda and Fiat have confirmed that the Mazda constructed Alpha Romeo roadster will enter production in 2015. That's a few years from now, so roadster fans have some time to wait.

I will say that I don't care for the style of the concept version of this car at all and hopefully it's better looking by the time it actually hits dealer showrooms. The vehicle is said to be developed for the global market and based on the next-generation Mazda MX-5 or Miata as most of us know it.

The agreement between Mazda and Fiat calls for a pair of vehicles distinctly styled and brand specific with rear-wheel drive. The cars will also get brand specific proprietary engines. The Mazda version is expected to get a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a number of customization options.
