    Granted the dealers (studios) are often last to know, but I saw on another message board that some dealers are saying 170hp and $24,900 as the USA price. Could be a dealer pretending to be in the loop. Got a few more days to know for sure.

    I visited my Studio yesterday and the manager has no info on specifications or actual availability date, bummer.

    All I can say is it's gotta be a real B**** having the answers and not being able to talk about them! Not an easy thing to do. "Attaboy" from the old guy for hanging tough, -- -- especially when everyone here is so eager to know.

    I am just reading all these rumours and thinking, didn't Chrysler media released a statement in 2010, that they are going to manufacture two 1.4L variants: 100hp and 170hp?

    http://www.prnewswire.com/news-relea...-80956822.html

    So it has to be 170hp, no?

    I sold my PE two months after owning it. The dealership is trying to make things up to me by putting my name on their Abarth list, supposedly, I am #1.

    Whatever.

    I'm interested to see what the Abarth will be, I mostly want to know what the price will be and what kind of fuel economy it gets. Actually, what I would love more than enchiladas on Christmas is for Fiat to put a 135 horse turbocharged engine in the current 500 sport coupe. It would be perfect for my needs/desires...a bit more power for pulling mountain hills but with a small enough hp bump to hopefully still get 36-38 mpg on the highway. Santa, please bring me this car and a plate of enchiladas. Thank you.
