Something Got Lost In Translation With The 2016 Fiat 500X

I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but sub-compact crossovers are so hot right now. They’re practical, have a modicum of capability, and are perfect for the urban-dwelling, active lifestyle 20-somethings that rule the Kingdom of Powerpoint. The 2016 Fiat 500X should be the standard-bearer for the segment. But it’s not,… » 4/17/15 9:59am 4/17/15 9:59am

Go Vintage Racing In This Cheap Fiat Abarth Spider

The Bertone designed and built Fiat 850 Spider was a small 2-sear roadster that sourced its rear engine setup and mechanical parts from the higher volume Fiat 850 sedan. The nuts at Abarth created a hopped up version with a bigger engine and called it the Fiat Abarth OT 1000 Spider. Don't ask me what OT stands… » 4/08/15 1:46pm 4/08/15 1:46pm

Could Fiat Build The Miata Coupe We've Always Wanted?

I'll warn you in advance that this post is fueled entirely by speculation, my own hopes and dreams, and possibly too much Jalopnik-brand Brefass Scotch-infused eggnog.

Alfa Romeo Is Doing Its Own Roadster Without Mazda: Report

It's been a while since we've heard anything about Fiat Chrysler's joint venture with Mazda for a new roadster based on the 2016 Miata. Now we have some surprising news, straight from Alfa Romeo's European boss. Alfa's Miata roadster is definitely dead, that project lives on at Fiat, but Alfa is making their own new… » 12/19/14 9:15am 12/19/14 9:15am

​The Fall of the House of Bertone

In August 1996, 82-year-old Nuccio Bertone came home from a holiday in the south of Italy feeling poorly. Six months later, on February 26, 1997, he was gone.
