This image is only a render of the possible coupe
Shortly after that Mazda presented the fourth generation of his myth, the Mazda MX-5 today, Fiat and its brand subsidiary of sports cars, Abarth, show us the Fiat 124 Spider and Abarth 124 Spider. These three cars share a platform with each other, but do not use the same mechanical despite being all of propulsion rear. In addition, the design of the japanese is different from that of the two italians.
differences in aesthetic between the Fiat and the Abarth come from the hand of an image to be more classic for the Fiat and the other a lot more racing for the “vitaminado” Abarth. Mechanically, the Fiat is content with a block of 1,400 cubic inches with boost and 140 horsepower, while the Abarth raises its power up to 170 horses, relying also on a tune-up, more sporty and a limited-slip differential.
later, and with the three models already on sale, the rumors came from the hand of a possible Fiat 124 Coupe, that would leave to one side the possibility of circular with the sky for roof and the mane in the wind, but you could have your site in a market as attractive as it is from the coupes and low-cost propulsion rear.

The british Coach returns to give that talk after he suggested that, in the case of a production such a vehicle, the design of the rear would change in a very noticeable way, and, in addition, in order not to cannibalize the sales of the Fiat 124 Spider, would be identical in the front but you could use a propeller of higher performance.
Coach speaks about that the alleged Fiat 124 Coupe could use a intermediate version between the 1.4 140 horses and the version of 170 horses until now reserved for the Abarth, or directly opt for the version of 170 horses, already well known and developed.
we do Not know if the important people in Fiat are very aware of the possibility of a coupe by issues of investment and profitability, but what is clear is that it could be a vehicle almost as interesting to see in the streets, as the current convertible of the Italian firm.
