Sloppy chop to show how the 500 could be updated using cues from the 124 Spider to attract more American buyers. I kept most of the design in an attempt to stay as true to the original as possible while giving it a true upper grill and more aggressive headlamps. I've stated in other threads that I think that the European styling may be off-putting to American car-buyers. This is an attempt to show what I think might be more in line with American tastes. If they were to do this, they could do it for the North American 500 only, although I suspect that the styling could be accepted in Europe and other markets where Fiat is strong if it were presented as a modernized evolution of the 500's retro styling (like the latest Mustang redesign). They could have taken a similar approach to a PT Cruiser redesign rather than de-contenting, neglecting, and ultimately killing it.
