Fiat and Mazda will join forces to develop rear-wheel-drive roadster models that will become a part of each automaker’s lineup in the years ahead, Mazda announced today.

Each brand’s model will be based on Mazda’s MX-5 platform, but each brand’s model will have a design that’s distinct to Fiat’s Alpha Romeo line or to Mazda’s lineup, Mazda says.

Production of Fiat’s Alpha Romeo roadster is slated for 2015; Mazda hasn’t determined when its roadster will arrive.
