Hot (electric) hatch

I had an Abarth 500 for 5 years, it was a love hate relationship. Loved the character and the noise from the race spec exhaust. Hated the reliability and dealer network who were useless.

But EVs are supposed to be better, mine had 170 bhp and cost 15,170 brand new. 13 years have passed. This is less powerful and 20,000 more expensive. That's backwards evolution if you ask me. Fail.

The fact it is made by FIAT says it all for me. Fix It Again Tomorrow.

FIAT wouldn't be my first (or top several) choice for a current daily driver or a collectible. If I was suddenly filling a half acre warehouse with cars I might put a 124 or an X1/9 somewhere in there.

I had a mate who bought a 124 Sports Coupe. Lovely car, a joy to drive, but required more maintenance than an Abrams tank. Then it rusted away!
