2016 Fiat 124 Spider...a Turbo Miata "New" Sky?

2016 Mazda MX-5 Vs. Fiat 124 Spider: Smallest Details Create Two Distinct Packages

Fiat 124 Spider revealed at 2015 LA Motor Show | Auto Express

Debuted this week at the LA Auto Show (god if it wasn't for the turbo build this weekend I'd be going), the new for 2016 Fiat 124 Spider looks promising. While only producing 160 hp it uses a 1.4L turbo out of the Abrath and weighs in at 2436 lbs making it about 100 lbs heaver than the new MX-5 it is based off of but with only 5 more hp than the MX-5s 2.0L NA 155 hp engine (torque for the 124 Spider is a 40 ft/lb improvement over the MX-5 though).

Looks wise though it really reminds me a lot of the Sky. It's almost as though the Miata and 124 Spider have taken a page from the Solstice and Sky book respectively.

Too much to list here. See my Garage for details.
