2018 Fiat 124 Coupe Version, Fact or Just Rumor?
2018 Fiat 124 Coupe Version, Fact or Just Rumor? – According to rumors the Fiat 124 Spider would be thinking about the coupe version of the, which will keep the mechanics.
Fiat 124 Coupe Design – FIXED ROOF
Fiat was planning to launch a Coupe variant of the Fiat 124 Spider, unearth a name used between 1966 and 1975 and adding to your list a new sports car characteristics, with obvious repercussions in terms of arms and prestige. The information came from informants inside the House gathered by the British weekly Autocar, which confirms that the Fiat 124 Coupe will not be derived from the Mazda MX-5 RF (the 124 Spider shares many components with the MX-5) which provides a roof hardtop “targa” style.
WITH OR WITHOUT TAILGATE?
The hypotheses being considered for the new Fiat 124 Coupé would be two: the first with a tail characterized by the presence of an airlock similar to that seen on the BMW Z4 Coupé, as in the drawing above by Theophiluschin.com. This solution would make the car much more racy and exploitable, but it requires considerable investment given that it would be necessary to redesign the entire tail and adapt the production line (the 124 Spider is built in Japan by Mazda). The second solution is much more feasible and provides a rigid roof that retain the current rear trunk.

from a mechanical point of view should not change much: Fiat 124 Coupe 1.4 MultiAir engine should maintain 140 HP Abarth version of the Spider able instead of 170 HP, grounded from rear-wheel drive with a limited slip differential. If you will be given the green light to the project, for the coupe version of the 124 you can imagine a debut no earlier than the end of 2017. Prices might be 10% higher than the Spider.
