My first new car was an X1/9, back in 1979. I put 175,000 miles on it. Won my class in SCCA autocross. It took me everywhere. Did everything. Looked cool. Got great gas milage and was reliable. It was my little "Ferrari 154"..... until the real thing came along!

I'd be glad to see at least Barchetta's successor, as even that car way long time ago left its house... And even more I'd love to see the successor of X1/9's combination, a great fun little sportcar, kinda like Alfa 4C.

?...succeeding model was Fiat Barchetta.

Fiat X1/9 Price (1977): 5.195 $

by way of comparison (1977)

Ferrari 308 GTB: 28.000 $
Maserati Merak: 21.700 $
Lamborghini Uracco: 24.150 $

...fair?

This was a cool little sportcar, beautiful and maneuverable. Fiat needs to reborn this car. The recipe is so simple, so what Fiat is waiting for?
