Zoom Zoom, Mrs. Robinson

The manufacturer of the world's most successful sports car is teaming with Alfa Romeo to produce the next generation of the iconic Miata. Which will, of course, also underpin the next generation of Alfa's Spider. On the one hand, I'm tickled, since this could bring the high quality and lower price the marque needs to compete against the Huns. On the other, well, Japanese-Alfa teams have historically not done well. It's a new century, so here's to hoping for the best!

Your going to have a Japanese speaking Spider...

The one I got has Japanese tires on it. I'm personally fine with it, as it gives Alfa access to a RWD platform for its sports cars. Putting super-horsepower turbo 4-bangers in a FWD platform and calling it a "sports car" was lunacy.
