  • 2017 Fiat 124 Spider, 2016 Press Drive San Diego

    What's the best way to make an Italian roadster? Build it in Hiroshima, Japan. That may sound like a joke, but that's exactly what's going on with the new 2017 Fiat 124. Colloquially known as the Fiata, the 124 Spider is built on the architecture of the Mazda MX-5 Miata, which debuted last year and was one of our finalists for the Motor Authority Best Car to Buy award. We've driven the Miata and we loved it. This week, we got the chance to get behind the wheel of an Italian take on a Japanese roadster, and we learned some of the differences between the two during our drive. Here they are. It...

  • 2015 Ferrari California replacement test mule spy shots

    With the current California convertible delivering close to 500 horsepower, able to accelerate to 60 in under 4.0 seconds and capable of reaching speeds of almost 200 mph, the ‘entry-level’ Ferrari is hardly what you’d call lacking in performance. But next to cars like the 458 Italia, the FF and F12 Berlinetta, and especially the LaFerrari, the California has received flak for being a little soft, looking somewhat ungainly and not handling quite as good. The California received some updates for 2013, which helped address some of those issues, but the car that will replace it...
