Hello. I'm waiting for the Abarth, with plans to trick out the exterior like the press release cars. I just traded my 2010 Corvette coupe for a Mercedes SUV, which was a big mistake. I've driven sports cars most of my life, and now I'm longing to get back. It's like part of my soul is missing. Might drive the Abarth for a couple of years while the current generation of Corvette comes down in price. That is, unless I love the Fiat (and it's reliable), in which case I might keep it for several years!

Hello Jim and welcome.

You may come to like the Fiat more than the Corvette. It's a different type of car with a lot less power, but in my opinion in some ways the Fiat is more fun.

Welcome to the forums !

I can definitely predict you having more fun with the 124 over the Corvette just because it's a more nimble vehicle. Has a nice pep, but you'll be able to carve roads quite a lot better if that's your thing.

Thanks for predictions! When I did a test drive of the Lusso last week, it really offered a thrill. It had plenty of low end horsepower & torque for cruising around town, and responsive steering (reminds me of the fun I had last summer when I took my nephews to the go-kart races, lol). I never really used the Corvette's 436 horsepower anyway, as I don't track. The Spider is a good 17 inches shorter than a Corvette, but that might make for easier lane changes and parallel parking. Now, if the dealers would just get the Abarth...
