Article by Christian A., on January 21, 2013

Starting 2015, Mazda will produce an open-top two-seater sports car for Fiat's Alfa Romeo brand at its Hiroshima, Japan factory. The Final Agreement has been recently signed. The two companies have previously made a joint announcement about this impending agreement on May 23, 2012. The new Alfa Romeo roadster is intended for the global market.

It will be based on the next-generation Mazda MX-5’s architecture. Under the agreement, Mazda and Fiat will both develop two differentiated roadsters that will feature rear-wheel drive and will each have their own unique style. Specific proprietary engines particular for each brand will be used to power the Mazda and Alfa Romeo variants.

Through this deal, Mazda seeks to improve development and production efficiency and revive enthusiasm for open-top two-seater sports cars worldwide. What Fiat gets from this collaboration is that it will be allowed to offer a modern interpretation of the classic Alfa Romeo roadster that uses the newest technical solutions, aiding Alfa Romeo to attain its estimated targets by 2016.
