The Sapor is a affordable but upgradeable sports car

Since Fiat's merger with Chrysler, coupled with Fiat's plans to reenter the North American market, the Sapor was conceived by diseno-art as a concept proposal for a small entry level sports car to fill a gap in both company's model lineup.

The Fiat Sapor is similar in principle to the Dodge Razor concept from 2002 in that it offers affordable yet upgradeable performance with great handling and tuning potential. The Sapor would also restart Fiat's long-standing tradition of building popular budget sports cars, a lineage of vehicles which includes the 1200/1500/1600S Cabriolets, 124 Spider, X1/9 and Fiat Barchetta.


Drivetrain
One possible and readily available engine which could easily be fitted in the Sapor would be the 1.4 litre, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine from the Fiat Grande Punto Abarth EsseEsse. This engine produces 180 hp @ 5750 rpm and 272 Nm (201 lb/ft) of torque @ 2750 rpm. In the Sapor the power would be sent to the rear wheels through a six speed manual gearbox.


Exterior Design
The exterior styling of the Fiat Sapor is influenced by both past and current Fiat models. The simple uncluttered lines are designed to echo those of previous Fiat convertibles which used classic proportions instead of complicated styling to provide curb appeal.

The retro-influenced front end uses styling cues from classic Fiats like the 1600S and popular Fiat 124 Spider, the stylized chrome headlight bezels are also adapted from these models. The lip spoiler and lateral air intakes positioned just forward of the front wheels are similar to those found on the very latest Abarth spec Fiat models.

In contrast to the curvaceous front end the squared off rear panel of the Sapor is partially influenced by the angular shape of the Fiat X1/9.

To appeal to racers and enthusiasts the body panels, wheel arches and sideskirts can be easily and quickly replaced, repaired or customized.


Interior
The interior of the Fiat Sapor is a strict two-seater. The driver and passenger are separated by a high center console which is painted in the same color as the body, this continues one of Fiat's trademark styling themes which is to accentuate the interior with body colored trim elements. The short-throw gear stick sits prominently atop a cylinder integrated into the center console.

The Fiat Sapor concept is equipped with a canvas roof instead of a folding hardtop. This is to help keep both the weight and price down. When down the roof stows into a compartment just behind the seats.
