Chrysler started to talk with the Italian carmaker Fiat over a possible cooperation between the two companies: the production of the Alfa Romeo model in Chrysler’s U.S. factories.

Chrysler could produce the cars for Fiat subsidiary Alfa Romeo," the newspaper wrote in an excerpt on Tuesday. "Industry sources say the talks are moving forward." In Italy, Fiat declined comment.

A Chrysler spokeswoman saying the report is speculation, but adds: "There could be other partnerships with other carmakers."

On Monday Chrysler and Nissan Motor Co. unveiled a production alliance on Monday that gives the U.S. automaker the small car it lacks and allows the Japanese company to stay in the competitive full-size U.S. pickup truck market.
