Someone's bound to get in trouble for this, 'cause this is not a document that should have hit the internet. But since it has, we're glad to bring it to you. It was apparently prepared for a conference of Fiat Group investors held over the last couple of days.

A few weeks ago, we brought you the anticipated release dates through 2008 for Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Romeo. This leaked document, however, gives us the release dates for Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo and Fiat commercial vehicles straight through 2010. The chart shows the dates for a total of 23 new models plus another 23 facelifts.

2009 will be a really big year for Alfa Romeo, with facelifted versions of the gorgeous Brera/Spider/159 line-up (already arguably the best-looking cars money can buy) hitting the market the same year as the new 169 and 149 (labeled "future c-segment"). Sadly, though the Maserati logo features on the top-right corner of the page, that division's production schedule is not included, nor is Ferrari's for that matter.

Click on the the chart above for all the juicy Italian details.

      Hmm. I guess what I really want to say is who cares? It's just Fiat, Lancia and Alpha Romeo? Get some leaked images from the production schedule from auto companies that people care about; GM, Ford, Daimler Chrysler, BMW, Honda/Acura, Toyota/Lexus, etc.

      I don't hear a lot of chatter in the industry press about either of these companies so this could be a controlled "leak" to generate some buzz.

      Thoughts?

      #2, Who cares?? The rest of the auto industry thats who. Fiat carries some of the most recognizable designs in the auotmotive world. Their design elements are copied around the world, with elements being seen in all of the manufactures you listed. However, with thier release dates posted for all to see much of thier stradegy is shot. I hope somebody gets fired.

      where's the alfa 149?

      #5 Sure rag on my spelling of their name. If that needs to be part of your argument, then you have no point. Admittedly, I end up spelling it that way because of an organization I belong to.

      #4. You didn't bother naming any of the specific design elements that the other brands steal. Also, I used to love the spyder, but the deisgn got old rather quickly and the cars didn't stand up to the test of time.

      #6. True American? Oh yeah, those were all American companies I mentioned. for the record, I own 2 American and 1 Japanese vehicles. And I plan to get either an Japanese or German vehicle for my next car. Assumptions.

      And yes, if they aren't selling here, why would I care? This is an American-based website, right? I am fairly sure American visitors dominiate the viewer statistics on this site. I welcome comments about cars here, but it is really annoying when people make assumptions about Americans based on their own prejudices of what they perceive Americans to be.

      #9. Sure you do, but who cares?

      Stepping down from the soapbox now. Who's next?

      I'm American and I'd like to know what cars we don't get over here. Perhaps we're missing out on something. And the group C segment is apparently on fire right now with the Fit, Yaris, and Versa. Maybe Fiat would do well to ship a Cinquecento (500) to our shores. It would help with the boring styling that we are forced to live with.

      This Minicargo sounds interesting: it will be built by TOFAS in Turkey (where the Doblo is already made) and is developed together with PSA. A pickup would be logical to replace the aging Strada. But why the hell a Panorama (read: wagon)? This would canibalize sales of the Doblo, so it does not sound like a good idea.

      Unfortunately you did not mention the new engines. There will be a 0.9l turbo with 90 to 120hp, that is currently developed for the nouva 500 and the Panda. The Holden sourced V6s will be droped and replaced by an engine that is developed by Alfa Romeo.

      Who cares? It is highly likely that the US will be getting the Alfa Romeo lineup in the 2009 column. That was the other part of this recent presentation, Alfa (I noticed you can't spell it correctly either) Romeo's plans for their return to the US in the 3Q of 2009, probably using Maserati dealers. They are currently doing market research in Los Angeles and doing surveys with JD Power. It is also reported that they are working on a series of new proprietary V6 engines so we will likely see those in the cars that arrive here.

      bigMIKE: spoken like a true american. Just because these companies do not operate on teh US market doesn't mean they aren't huge.
