Recently it was announced that Mazda and Fiat have signed an agreement that will have Mazda produce an open-top two-seat sports car for Fiat's Alfa Romeo brand at the Fiat
plant beginning in 2015. The Mazda Roadster will be distinctly different than the Fiat model and will have it's own style, engine and parts. The two vehicles will share a platform and have some similar qualities, but overall will be much different. Bill Jacobs Mazda
is anxiously anticipating the beginning of production of this car and they currently have the 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata in Chicago, IL.
The new Alfa Romeo roadster will be produced for a global scale and will use the architecture of the next-generation Mazda MX-5. Both of the roadsters will have rear-wheel drive and will help to revive the small sports car market, that has received less attention in recent years.
Mazda is anticipating enhancing development and production efficiency of the two-seat sports car for its customers. Bill Jacobs Mazda is a big fan of the Mazda MX-5 and other Mazda cars in Chicago and they are sure that this venture will be a great success.
