you really have to love Fiat 500 options we have, especially being a totally new car to the American market. I'm just surprised at all the special edition Fiat 500's that have come out over the past year as well as all the Abarth 500 performance models. Here's a great article on that...





Even with its short time on-sale and limited availability in only a few markets across the country, the Fiat 500 has already made quite a splash among American carbuyers. Although its popularity in such urban centers as New York and Los Angeles isn’t a great surprise, its success in unlikely markets such as Texas have taken many by surprise.

But as good as the 500 is in its current form, there’s always room for improvement and variety. In Europe, the 500 is offered with four different available engines, including a diesel (not to be confused with the DIESEL edition), a turbocharged two-cylinder dubbed TwinAir, and of course, the tasty Abarth turbo that American pocket-rocket enthusiasts are salivating for in anticipation.

Similar to the approach Mini is taking trotting out multiple variations of the Cooper, including a two-seater Coupe and cute-ute Countryman, there are rumors of different iterations of the 500 as well, including a four-door, and possibly a fastback two-seater similar to the Zagato concept shown at this year’s Geneva show.

So what would you like to see under the hood of Fiat’s iconic retro subcompact? What about another set of doors? Or, a fastback and two fewer seats? Let your imagination run wild in building your ultimate “Cinquecento.”

I say leave the 500 alone for now but offer some engine options. And get some other models over here for when some of us "out grow" our 500's. The Panda looks like a nice small family hauler. Terrible name though.
