Fiat announced today that the company will unveil three new sports cars by 2010: a RWD Lancia and Alfa Romeo and a stand-alone Abarth two-seater inspired by the Lotus Elise.

The future Abarth ’Elise’ will be a mid-engined and ultra-lightweight like that of the Elise. It will be powered by a small turbocharged engines, perhaps the 1.4 as in the 500 and Grand Punto Abarth.

The Lancia sports car will be inspired by the Fulvia concept unveiled in 2003. A coupe-cabriolet body-style has been rumoured, and although there’s no word the underpinnings, it could well be rear-wheel-drive. The same platform will be used for an Alfa Romeo coupe, too, which could revive either the Giulia or Giulietta names.
