Confirmed for 2015 as a production car, the Alfa Romeo Spider will be built in Mazda's Hiroshima plant, after the Italians and the Japanese have signed a partnership last year.
Designed as a global vehicle (we're shocked!), the new Alfa Romeo Spider will sit on the next Mazda MX-5 Miata's underpinnings, but won't share the same body style with the small Asian sportscar.

While we're still guessing what type of engines potential customers will find under the new Spider's bonnet (and we are still betting on a turbocharged 1.8-liter for that matter), we have decided to show you a rendering of the car which is set to revive a famous Alfa Romeo moniker.

Obviously inspired by the 4C model, the rendered Spider bears the same front grille, air intakes and splitter as Turin's latest 2-door coupe. However, the headlamps are a completely different story and we dig 'em to the point where we wouldn't mind seeing them on the bug-eyed 4C.

Editor's note: Call me paranoid, but this rendering makes the Spider look more Japanese than Italian. I've learned it's supposed to be that way, but It's still somewhat confusing really...
