An anonymous source speaking to Automotive News has said that with the recent announcements on partnering with Chrysler. That Fiat will begin importing the Fiat 500, along with the new Alfa Rome 940 as early as next year. And as an added bonus setting up production in the United States shortly there after in 2011.
I drove a 500 while on vacation in Italy and fell in love with. Hopefulyl we'll get the Abarth tuned versions too.
