    The assembly lines in Pomigliano d’Arco are operational again now that the summer vacation is over. Alongside the existing versions of the Panda, the employees also have a newcomer to welcome; the Cross. The […]

    The very first scoop picture of the future D-segment Alfa Romeo was only expected in September but already got public a few days back through Quattroruote. This well-informed Italian source is not 100% sure of what we’re seeing here; it’s either the first tangible proof of Alfa’s new ‘Giorgio’ platform or an upcoming Maserati GT (Alfieri).…[Read more]

    Alfa Romeo really is working on its plan for the US and Canada, proof of which is Reid Bigland being appointed. It shows that marketing the brand overseas will not only happen by means of the Maserati network. […]

  • abarth595b

    Both are small city cars, but that’s probably the only thing the Lancia Ypsilon we drove one week and the Abarth 595 Competizione we got our hands on the week after have in common. No more cruise control, automatic lights, automatic wipers or butter-soft ride. In come “Abarth Corse by Sabelt” bucket seats, “Record Monza”-exhaust, lots of…[Read more]

  • Panda-Lean5

    The Fiat-factory in Pomigliano d’Arco has been given the “Lean & Green Management Award 2014” for their high-tech production methods. A German instance has – just like in 2012 – reviewed the efficiency of the Giambattista Vico Plant. Growtth© Consulting & Quadriga Consult from Sternberg near Munich has held an elaborate study to see which…[Read more]

  • Dallara

    The enormous know-how and experience of Dallara recently led to the development of the Alfa 4C and – who knows – perhaps even other projects of FCA. That this firm is now working on their own road car is not that far-fetched, then. A new Italian sports car with a unique badge that should be launched in three years’ time. CEO Gian Paolo Dallara…[Read more]

  • maserati-peking

    An impressive group of 100 Maseratis was waved goodbye in Beijing yesterday. China loves Maserati and so there was quite some attention for all these Italian beauties that started their journey of over 12.000km (7.500 miles) towards Modena. A huge ceremony with drums and banners was held in the Forbidden City to the sounds of Puccini’s ‘Nessun…[Read more]

  • Chrysler-safety

    FCA plans to establish a development center for Chrysler that will dedicate its attention to the innovation of safety techniques which are to be featured on future products. This division will be some kind of nursery from which brands like Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Fiat might also benefit. Scott Kunselman will be in charge and shall report…[Read more]

  • ecochic1

    It’s the second time in less than six months that we’ve driven the Lancia Ypsilon EcoChic with the familiar TwinAir engine and two fuel tanks; one for regular petrol (40 liters) and one for CNG (12 kilos). Why test it twice, we hear you thinking? Well, Fiat is currently promoting its CNG-models and asked us whether we were interested in having…[Read more]

  • Fiat-Mitsubishi

    These new and medium-sized pick-ups have been spotted in Italy recently. They show that Fiat is working on such a product themselves for an introduction on the European market, but especially for Brazil where Fiat Professional might benefit enormously from such a strategic expansion. It was earlier assumed that the upcoming cooperation with…[Read more]

  • montezemolo-marchionne

    Ferrari is doing extremely well, as we all know, and that’s mainly thanks to Luca Cordero di Montezemolo. Now, though, it seems his days are counted. Rumor has it that the elderly boss, who might get a new managing function at Allitalia which is now managed by Arabians, is steadily being shown the door at Maranello. His replacer? John Elkann…[Read more]

    • The man had obviously better days. Self-judgement in respect of Ferrari impact a F1 circus is the best example. And yes, he was at helm for a long period, but since Jean Todt left Ferrari the thing is struggling. Commercial success is ongoing but with race track stay in the shadow that will change faster as the cars will ever be.
      And to be…[Read more]

    • A different bet is the fact that Ferrari is economically successful. But is the driver of the idea to imposed limitation on production numbers. But look at Porsche: Since years they are pushing for larger numbers. And did it harm the Image so far?

      It may be through that too large numbers are diluting exclusivity. But where that number is with…[Read more]

  • Quattroruote

    According to the well-informed Italian source Quattroruote, this mysterious and awkwardly looking Linea is a new C-segment Fiat in the making. The magazine wrote in its latest edition of this week that the camouflage is a hint towards the future production location of a sedan, hatchback and stationwagon. This brings an end to the rumor that…[Read more]

  • FCA-2014

    It was a historical moment for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and a hopeful one for entire Italy. Though some had to shed a tear knowing this was the last shareholders meeting at Lingotto, the real news of yesterday was the fact that Fiat has started with a new era. This offers perspective for the troublesome Italian auto industry. The formation of…[Read more]

  • march-alfa

    By the end of August we’ll know whether Alfa Romeo has chosen to give its American comeback a bit more glance by competing in the IndyCar competition. It sure looks like it as the American Racer Magazine has claimed this to be the case. Australian magnate Kevin Kalkhoven who currently owns Cosworth (formerly Ford) – the company which is…[Read more]

  • Ferrari-365P

    The unique Ferrari 365 P Berlinetta Speciale from 1966 is to be auctioned at Pebble Beach for an expected 20 million dollars. If this number were actually to be offered for this gorgeous three-seater – that wouldn’t look bad in a Bond-film – it would mean a new record for Ferrari. The 365 P Berlinetta Speciale wears chassis number 8971 and is…[Read more]

  • museo-storico1

    It took months and even years of detailed discussion to agree on the matter, but the reopening of the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo in Arese is now finally close at hand. We said the same thing late last year, but problematic talks between Fiat and the Ministry of Culture were the deal breaker then. Quattroruote now claims though that the minister…[Read more]

  • croma-cassino

    The preparations for the production of the first new generation of Alfa Romeos (post-4C) have already commenced at several locations throughout Italy. The newspaper Corriere della Sera claims that FCA’s plant in Cassino hasn’t built any Fiat Bravos or Lancia Deltas in July, while production of the Giulietta would have been steadily transferred…[Read more]

  • 500x-debuut2

    Italy is warming up for a new Fiat with true Crossover characteristics that will listen to the name 500X. This newcomer from the Melfi plant will start being produced at the end of this summer right alongside the new Jeep Renegade. The premiere for the public will almost certainly take place in Paris on October 4th and in Milan on December…[Read more]

  • FCA-officina82

    The subject today wasn’t selling a struggling Italian car factory to a German manufacturer, but the fact that Fiat starts with a new era at Mirafiori in Turin. This is the very place where once more cars were rolling off the assembly lines every day than in any other plant in Europe. Officina 82 was festively reopened and is to become the…[Read more]

  • maserati-productie

    Two reasons why Maserati isn’t planning on producing more than 75.000 cars a year; the limited production capacity and the guarantee of exclusivity. That’s the maximum number they hope to achieve every year once the SUV Levante and Alfieri concept are in production (by 2018, that is). We already knew Maserati was aiming for 75.000 units, but…[Read more]
