Our spy photographer caught the upcoming 2017 Fiat 124 Spider without any camouflage as it hit the streets near Santa Barbara, Calif. for a photo shoot.

Based on the new fourth-generation ND Mazda MX-5 Miata, the 2017 Fiat 124 Spider features longer front and rear overhangs and more squared-off styling than the Japanese roadster. The styling differences are a throwback to the original 1966 124 Spider designed by Pininfarina. Unlike the Fiat 500 models, the upcoming 124 Spider has smaller headlights and horizontal taillights.

Where the new Fiat 124 Spider differs most from other Fiat models is inside the cabin. The Italian roadster features much of the Miata's bits including the dashboard and center stack and console as well as Mazda's infotainment and climate control systems in lieu of the FCA Uconnect system.

In place of the Miata's 155-hp 2.0-liter Skyactiv four-cylinder, the Fiat 124 Spider will likely be offered with a base 1.4-liter turbo four with 180 hp and an Abarth variant with the Alfa Romeo 4C's 1.75-liter turbo four making 240 hp. The base engine will likely be available with a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the 1.75-liter will only be offered with the dual-clutch gearbox.

The 2017 Fiat 124 Spider is expected to make its debut at the 2015 Los Angeles auto show in November.
