Fiat's new 500 will speak with a Polish accent. The automaker announced Thursday that production of the supermini will begin in July of next year at the company's Tychy facility. This, from Fiat Chief Executive Officer Sergio Marchionne, who confirmed the car's production plans while visiting a plant in Italy.

The plant will churn out 120,000 500s and 120,000 Ford Kas each year over ten years.

      #11 And our current leader didn't/doesn't lie? Pleasssseeeeeeeeee, I'd say using false information (a lie, if you will) is worse in this administration by a long shot.

      However this administration has, as always, a good spin on it "I was given poor intelligence or poor information" (false information)

      We can always rely on Richard Warren to peddle nonsense. http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/hoaxes/presiq.htm

      Bill Clinton – 182,
      Jimmy Carter- 175,
      John F. Kennedy – 174,
      Richard Nixon- 155,
      Franklin D. Roosevelt – 147,
      Harry S. Truman – 132,
      Lyndon B. Johnson- 126,
      Dwight D. Eisenhower – 122,
      Gerald Ford – 121,
      Ronald Reagan – 105,
      George Bush – 98.

      Sort of says it all, who did you vote for?

      The highest average IQs are among Oriental countries of North East Asia (average IQ = 104)
      European nations (average IQ = 98)
      White populations of North America and Australasia (average IQ = 98).

      Further behind are the countries of South and Southwest Asia, from the Middle East through Turkey to India and Malaysia (average IQ = 87)
      South East Asia and the Pacific Islands (average IQ = 86)
      Latin America and the Caribbean (IQ = 85).
      Lowest are the countries of Africa (average IQ = 70).

      So Poland does very well @106

      Cute little car, unfortunately unlikely to see North American shores.

      Hmm, JCR, sorry you can't distingush some humor, of course all we have to do is listen to our president, speak and you know where his IQ is. Just listen to his speech tonight.

      Some of you guys are way to serious-----

      The other IQ ratings are from a pretty reliable source, the UN study group.

      So go take a chill pill and learn some humor.

      #1: what a stupid comment. I can see you still live in the early 20th century.

      Poland has been building Fiats since the 70s and you can still see plenty of them in the road. Now it also includes Opels and even the Chevy Aveo for local markets.

      I would never buy a Polish product. Does D on the gear shift stand for doubtful?

      #12.....and how are you any different?

      The irony of using false information (a lie, if you will) to bolster the reputation of a liar (Bill Clinton) is probably lost.
