“The new Spider definitely won’t be retro in design. The Spider has to be contemporary and must fit into the range with the modern 4C,” said a source. “It would have been easy to go for a retro, boat-tail design, but how would that fit in with the 4C and today’s Alfa designs?” another source added.
Based on the next-generation Mazda MX-5, the 2015 Alfa Romeo Spider will be built in Japan and launched with a version of the company’s turbocharged 1.4 TB MultiAir engine that will send 170 HP to the wheels.
