    Another nice photoshop, but again not the actual car.

    This is the closest thing I found to the spy photos (cars need side indicators!):

    This is from an official Fiat release apparently Porthos. Was released through facebook on the Italian Fiat page as part of a brochure for the 124... might find this is a very close representation of what we can expect ;) (Hopefully!)

    I think it's far too early for any actual Brochures, plus that has no side indicators, the real one is pictured here:

    http://blog.caranddriver.com/2017-fiat-124-spider-caught-undisguised-it-looks-very-miata-like/

    Exhausts are lower, bumper doesn't cut so low in the real one, side indicators on wings etc etc.

    It is close though, but I work with Photoshop and I'm telling you if thats from a brochure then I'll eat my hat because the reflection of those wheels is, TERRIBLE, ha ha. Rear wheel reflection has no tread apparently..... And Brembos!? On the Fiat version!?

    Just have to wait and see I guess. I don't expect the wheels to be those either but hey ho! Internet is rife with rumours at the moment! Exciting times for Fiat/Abarth fans! :)

    Here you go Brian, made an animated gif using the 'official fiat' pic and an autoexpress mockup, shows you they are the same picture both manipulated in photoshop to appear different. Notice the interior matches perfectly and a few other bits like the tyres being in the exact same location and floor markings/shadows under the car etc.

    I do this sort of thing every day for a living so trust me when I tell you something is photoshop :)



    In fact here is my own photoshop I made a while ago now....


    For anyone interested or who hasn't seen these all over the internet yet, these are the official Fiat pics so far........

    Can't argue with that Porthos! I think that photoshop won't be far off from the real thing though looking at the spied model.

    I think the orange one of the cover will be close o the real thing because if you compare it to these spy shots
    the similaritys on the front are very close ,lights and front grill,wheels,fake chrome windscreen surround and same indicators.
