While Mazda’s gratification to tease coupe lovers with the at the rear-gen MX-5 Power Retractable Hardtop and the upcoming RF, the group is loath to offer a version of its lovable roadster with a unending hardtop. But Fiat isn’t so fickle. According to Autocar, the Italian label could unveil a proper hardtop Fiata as beginning as next year.

Likely called the 124 Coupe – duhAutocar reports the reckoning of a fixed roof will spice up the contemporary Spider. But what kind of spice is more burdensome to predict. AC reports that FCA could stand the course, offering the new hardtop with the yet powertrain lineup as the Spider – 138 horsepower in the UK and 160 hp (164 hp in Abarth trig) in the US – or drive the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder higher.

As for how the car thinks look, Autocar points to the handsome 124 Abarth Mob Concept from the 2016 Geneva Motor Direct. Don’t expect integrated rally lights or a archetype yellow-on-red paint scheme, but the new model intention likely borrow that concept’s roofline – more notchback than the MX-5 RF’s fastback-like look. That’d fit with the 124 Coupe’s ancestors, which wore a established notchback roofline. Fiat offered a 124 hardtop between 1967 and 1975, giving a new hardtop Fiata much more factual precedence than a comparable MX-5.

AC reports the new 124 Coupe resolution likely carry a 10-percent scarc across the pond, with a similar advance in the US. But predicting the impact of that price hike is a s bit trickier than multiplying the 124 Spider’s reward by 1.1, since we don’t know what trims the Coupe intent come in. The Abarth is likely a shoe-in, starting circa $31,000. If, and it’s a big if, Fiat sells a 124 Coupe Classica, anticipate a $27,500 starting price, while a hardtop Lusso would be a smidge in excess of $30,000.
