In speaking with a representative at Abath's show stand in Geneva, Autoblog received confirmation that the Fiat performance division its planning its own offering unique from any existing Fiat models. British weekly Autocar is now reporting that Abarth is preparing two new variants, a coupe and a two-seat roadster, but before that will come out with a convertible version of the 500 Abarth.
The Fiat 500 Abarth bowed at the Geneva Motor Show as the brand's second model following the Grande Punto unveiled a year prior, before the SS version debuted in Frankfurt last year. The convertible 500 Abarth is tipped to debut early next year.

      As much as I love old Alfas, Fiat needs to bring the Abarth brand to the USA instead of Alfa. Abarths could be pitched at Mini, except with more distinct models. Mini has one model with several variants. Imagine walking into a Masarati dealer to buy your new Abarth 500SS. Personally I want the Grande Punto SS, although the need to change that name.

      I think FIAT should bring the high performance FIAT range under the Abarth brand to sit in the showroom next to Alfa. I would like an Abarth 500 too.
