The Fiat 124 Spider will be based on the MX-5 and will even be built at the same plant in Hiroshima, Japan, but the styling between the two roadsters is expected to be very different. The 124 Spider may even use a different engine, with some reports claiming that it will borrow the 1.4L engine from the 500 instead of the 2.0L four-cylinder in the MX-5.
