Re: Where are Fiat going with the Punto?

The Arna was a Datsun Cherry with the Alfasud boxer engine.
It looks ugly, and nobody wanted to buy the car, so it soon dissapeared...


If the new Mazda MX-5 will be rebadged Alfa Romeo, I wonder what will happen...
Real Alfista will not buy it for sure.

It won't be badged an Alfa. It will be a Fiat as Alfa have now decided they don't want a model that's not built in Italy.

Re: Where are Fiat going with the Punto?

Build in Italy is perhaps important... but the most important is to build an Alfa with Alfa DNA, not to take another make and put a badge on (like they tried to do with Lancia)
Thanks puntofan01 thanked for this post
