2015 Mazda MX-5 / 2016 Alfa Romeo Spider spy photo 23.10.2013 [23rd Oct, 2013] [23rd Oct, 2013] [23rd Oct, 2013] [23rd Oct, 2013] / Automedia
Today we bring a second batch of spy photos showing the new Mazda MX-5 / Alfa Romeo Spider which are both due in 2015.
While the previous photos were taken outside Chrysler's Tech Center in Auburn Hills, the MX-5 mule seen in these latest spy pics was photographed on the Nürburgring wearing the body of the current generation model but even so we can still see some changes in line for the Miata.
The doors look longer which indicates the car will have a stretched wheelbase, while the extended wheel arches imply a wider track. There also seems to be an added section in front of the A-pillar so the cars will adopt "long hood, short deck" proportions.
Details about what will power the cars are not known at this moment but both automakers have announced each will have its proprietary engines that will be "unique to each brand". Expect the Alfa Romeo Spider to receive a 120 HP 1.4-liter MultiAir while the Mazda could be offered with a 1.3- or a 1.6-liter Skyactiv.
