Mazda/Alpha Romeo Roadster to Enter Production in 2015

Jan 18 2013, 12:52pm CST | by

Each will have its own style and power

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.

Next-Gen Nissan Titan Destined for Detroit, We Detail Its Clever New Diesel Engine

Oct 28 2014 12:28pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Almost 12 years ago, Nissan showed up at Detroit’s hometown auto show with a direct challenge to the Big Three: its first full-size truck, the Titan. Even if that truck barely registers as competition today—though it does have a pretty bitchin’ name—Nissan hasn’t been deterred from repeating the stunt with the second-generation truck. The 2016 Titan will make its debut at the 2015 Detroit auto show, according to a Nissan spokesman. We already know that an optional t ...
