According to Hotcars, Mazda will still be producing a few batches of 124 Spiders on their Miata assembly line as 2021 models, so the Spider isn’t done yet. It remains to be seen which ports these cars will be shipped to though, and as Hotcars states:
… the 2021 124 Spider Abarth will need a serious marketing team to dethrone its opponents.
It has been confirmed that dealers can still take deposits for special-order 2021 124 Spiders from the factory for customers.
My Fiat dealer also sells Maserati and Alfa Romeos, so even if they are not allocated any sales bank 2021 Spiders (I think they still have a handful of 2019s to sell), the Maserati Alfieri (shown above), which I think looks so much like a conceptual hardtop version of our Spider, will soon be proudly displayed in the dealer’s showroom.
Equipped with a 4.7L V8 Ferrari engine, the Alfieri is expected to hit the streets by the beginning of 2021. First introduced in 2014, the concept car is finally becoming commercially available.
As an effort to revive the Maserati brand, the FCA decided to keep the luxurious aspect that naturally comes with a Maserati (unlike Ford with Jaguar). The Alfieri will be competing with low-grade Ferraris, Lamborghinis, as well as the BMW M6 and the AMG C63 S.
As for new Spiders, one is in the works from Maserati – the MC20 Spider, a full-electric planned for MY 2022, according to this article.
After reading this article today, where they’re auctioning off the last 124 Spider produced for the Japanese market, I think it’s safe to assume that there won’t be anymore coming out of the Hiroshima facility, so any new arrivals at the ports (if any), will be the last ones. The article doesn’t state what model year was assigned to these last vehicles though (2020 or 2021?).
I love some of the sketches that were assembled for this “Sayonara” charity event!
