Mazda and Fiat

Eight months after both Mazda and Fiat announced that they plan to join forces to produce a next-generation roadster that will be shared by both companies, the two carmakers have now confirmed that they have signed a final agreement that "will see Mazda produce an open-top two-seater sports car for Fiat's Alfa Romeo brand at its Hiroshima, Japan, plant starting from 2015."

The new Alfa Romeo roadster will be developed for the global market and will be based on the next-generation Mazda MX-5. Despite the shared platform, both Mazda and Fiat will develop "two differentiated, distinctly styled, iconic and brand-specific roadsters featuring rear-wheel drive" and powered by specific proprietary engines unique to each brand.

Ah, such is the profound effect of the Toyota 86 and the Subaru BRZ.
